How about lightsmark? I tried to run that benchmark with latest daily kernel form ppa mainline and using the xedgers 7..11 code. I had tons of dark scenes which was no the case earlier. It is big regression and I think the performance does not matter when I just keep looking at black screen.
Awesome, at this pace.
The 300g drivers will be 'finished' at the end of this year!
Kudos to all the developers. It was so nice to see the OSS being faster than the proprietary ones in one of the benchmarks. Hopefully, when the developers are done. This will be the case in all benchmarks.
Now that's why I keep saying libre drivers are always well worth all the waiting. Kudos to everyone involved. I'm using R600g from X.Org Edgers' repository and I can see some real progress there as well. Thanks for opening up, AMD - this way I'm yours forever (along with all my clients who care about more than getting their hardware to work immediately, no matter how).
if i remember well the 300g was supposed to be the trainig ground for later drivers right? so keeping that in mind the r600g will surely follow soon. i just wonder why the more powerful r600 cards produce unplayable framerate. if the driver architecture is the same, how can that be? now the tests have been made on amd processors. do the results apply for intel processors aswell?
besides. i hope these results will get the intel people to work on a gallium driver. why trying to avoid the the inevitable?
will wayland produce even higher frame rates due to simpler nature?
