    Phoronix: Linux 3.12 Brings Big AMD Radeon Improvements

    The Linux 3.12 kernel when released in the coming weeks will bring a number of new features and improvements to AMD Radeon graphics cards, including faster performance. For many Linux games tested the Radeon Gallium3D OpenGL frame-rates were making double-digit gains through upgrading the Linux kernel.

    3.12-rc5 still "Average: 121.07 Frames Per Second"

    And with Ultimate settings:

    3.11.4: "Average: 86.57 Frames Per Second"
    3.12-rc5: "Average: 85.85 Frames Per Second"

    But maybe the 4,1 Ghz AMD is just too slow

    PTS does screenshots if you enable the module, maybe in a next article?

    @Michael
    I agree about maximizing views but if you plan to bisect it, then please do it ASAP and point agd5f to the culprit commit, at least privately...
    I would do it myselft but I don't have access to any hardware right now.

    Do you have visuals when running PTS?
    Could it be that some functions like anti-aliasing, which is supposed to be turned on, is actually malfunctioning, resulting in higher but non comparable tests?

    source forge

    thanks for the hint!
    there it is - http://sourceforge.net/projects/driconf/
    they do not even have a tarball there but SVN should work for me

    Seems you'll need to grab it off SourceForge SVN.

    nice! I cannot find packages for suse however...http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...?query=driconf

    the source should be here, but all links there are broken!
    http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/DriConf/

    does anyone have a working link to a source-tarball for me???
