    Phoronix: Happy 3rd Birthday To AMD's Open-Source Strategy

    It was three years ago on this day that we were the first to detail AMD's open-source strategy. Yep, it's only been three years since AMD became public with pushing out NDA-free GPU documentation and register specifications, open-source code for the xf86-video-ati and Mesa drivers, and employed a small set of developers to contribute towards their open-source Linux stack. It was also three years ago from this month that the now deceased RadeonHD driver was launched...

    OK, thanks. The images are blocked at work but I remember what it's supposed to look like

    Yes of course, my GPU is HD 5750.

    If there hadn't been the left picture for comparison I would have thought it might even be ok that way.
    Until I saw screenshots from SuperTuxKart I also though that this "texturing" they use would be normal. But in that case it's the same problem in Windows.

    I run fglrx at the time when my 3870 is in since fglrx has matured power management. Without that an the onboard 3300 I don't notice that much difference.

    The free drivers seem to be partially even better in 2D, esp. since fglrx 10.7 made a mess in 2D scrolling so I had to revert to 10.5.

    Are you testing the open source Evergreen acceleration code that was released a couple of weeks ago ?
