    I think floating point textures/GL3 was disabled, since the specs in the article only mentioned GL2. But S2TC should have been available, since i think Ubuntu ships that by default.
    texture-float was passed when building Mesa and S2TC is present by default in Ubuntu (sure wish there was a way to automatically parse the Mesa build configuration of the resulting binaries; similar to gcc -v, so that the information could be presented...)

    The used frequencies are shown automatically by PTS (when debugfs is readable) in the system table, which are shown on the second page.

Openbenchmarking does this for performance, but, as development is speeding up, it is really hard to know exactly which hardware features are supported on which driver.

    The default isn't Medium, it's whatever is set in the video cards BIOS.

    But that's what the freedesktop wiki is for.

    Michael, if you tested Vadim's shader optimizer http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~vadimg/mesa/log/?h=r600-sb,
    results could have been even better!

    Interesting that the 6450 in particular has some anomalies. Anyone possible reason why?
