    This is rather good news.
    I remember buying HD4670 card, installing catalyst(that was fglrx at time), getting ~160fps out of openarena on dualcore e5300 and upon exit nicely crashing X straight. The opensource driver was,.. comparable to VESA that time.

    Needless to say I returned the card back to the shop and got nvidia 9800 gt. 300 fps, no crashes, absolutely. But again proprietary. And fan spinning 100% unless proprietary driver has started.

    But now with 4770 and opensource, things have gotten much better. 60fps in openarena(not everything, but something), no xorg crashes, faster 2D.

    So now, AMD is matching Nvidia. I wonder if it was actually the original goal, forget opensource. I really hope not.
