    let's say the truth: what turned out is that AMD should be ashamed of what they call a driver (fglrx). Let's just hope all this sh%$ comes to an end with a complete open source driver one day. And actually yes, do a comparison with NVIDIA proprietary driver if you can... let's see what comes out... you never know.. maybe even NVIDIA drivers suck?

    Don't ask such questions!

    It would be interesting to see a comparison of the two open source drivers, radeonhd and radeon on a card that is supported by both.

    That's better than I expected too. I was a bit worried when I saw the article since the focus has been entirely on getting the basic functions working, not performance optimization of any kind.

    To be honest, I would have expected worse results. R7xx seems to run ok for 2D even in this early stage of support.

    Phoronix: AMD R700 2D Driver Performance Comparison

    Earlier this week we delivered results from a comparison between the Catalyst and X.Org Radeon drivers looking at the R500 2D performance. With a lot of interest having been generated from that, we have now carried out the same set of tests again but this time using an ATI Radeon HD 4850 (RV770) graphics card and the experimental EXA support.
