    Hmm

    That kind of benchmarks start to become boring...

    It's interesting to note that the r300g hardware is significantly outperforming the r600g hardware in that test. It seemed to be about the only case where that happened, which is a lot better than things used to look.

    Nexuiz/Xonotic and OpenArena are looking great > 50%.

    Too bad the mesa driver can't keep this performance with Doom3, Warsow and co.

    Phoronix: An Optimized Open-Source Driver Tries To Compete With AMD Catalyst

    There's been a number of recent open-source driver improvements that have come about for modern ATI/AMD Radeon graphics cards under Linux, but not all of these features have yet to be merged or enabled by default (e.g. 2D color tiling, PCI Express 2.0, and HyperZ). With some basic tweaks, can the open-source Radeon Gallium3D driver now compete with AMD's proprietary Catalyst Linux driver when it comes to OpenGL performance? Let's see.
