    Just recently I put x300 on a "power supply test rig" , just to check if power supply works. I booted recent ubuntu and I was shocked that desktop is totally snappy and scrolling 9gag on firefox was without lag. I did not test any games though.

    Phoronix: ATI R300 Gallium3D Driver Seeing A Big Performance Fix After Being Regressed For Years

    For those still running decade and a half old ATI Radeon graphics hardware like the Radeon Xpress 200M found in numerous notebooks back in the day, a performance regression in the R300 Gallium3D driver is being sorted out after concerned users on this vintage hardware began bisecting and testing patches for a regression to this old ATI open-source driver that appears to have been adversely affected back in 2017...
