    Phoronix: AMD Radeon: Windows Catalyst vs. Linux Gallium3D vs. Linux Catalyst

    Our latest Windows vs. Linux benchmarks on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS are of three different AMD Radeon graphics cards from three different generations as we test the performance of Microsoft Windows 8.1 against Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, when using both the AMD Catalyst proprietary driver and the open-source R600/RadeonSI Gallium3D drivers.

    It would be really interesting to see if the performance delta between Linux and Windows on the R9 290 card has been reduced in the latest drivers.

      not bad

      the r600 are in great shape, radeonsi need more work, but well done messa devs great job, next step?! put all devs working in opensource driver and merge the drivers

        I agree. It would be good to know if it is time to buy a new card

        Michael, how many please do you need to hear to do these benchmarks? (PLEEEEEEEEEEAAAASSSEEEE!!!!)

          If your "please" is written on a 50$ note

            Not bad, the 6870 seems to be in a sort of a sweet spot where it's very close to Catalyst (and the Linux Catalyst seems to be better than the Windows one in some cases).

              What is wrong with triangle test on both intel and radeon drivers

              http://openbenchmarking.org/embed.ph...4b8a6c3eb3&p=1

              I guess that needs to be decent performer if someone wants later tesselation to play at decent speed

                It doesn't work like that.

                It's not like tesselation is too essential, there are more important topics to spend time on currently.

                  The open-source Radeon drivers can't yet handle GiMark or TessMark due to missing OpenGL/GLSL support.
                  Sorry, not quite.

                  tessmark really doesn't run, probably because it needs tesselation.

                  But gimark seems to only need opengl 3.3 and does not use anything deprecated. So this works:
                  Code:
                  MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=330 ./start_gimark_windowed_1024x640.sh
                  Might be a good idea to ask the developer to use a core context for his benchmarks.

                  (How much does a secret closed source "benchmark" mean anyway. GPUTest's numbers are always very strange compared to other benchmarks)

                    Yep currently there is no point to even implement tesselation it will be very slow because if i guess this test shows we are 3-7 times slower, so 3-7 times triangle bound... and that always does metter later for tesselation will even more .
