    No it doesn't, it just confirms that you overlook things - the 5750-sb is opensource driver with Vadim optimizations and it outperforms catalyst in several tasks and stays on 80% in others.
    You have a very selective perception. A single card that uses special optimizations outperforms the catalyst in a few tests.

    Look at the rest of the test, they benchmarked quite a few cards there.

    Laughable, you are in total denial of reality.

    Please do that. If you can't stand criticism on your precious open source drivers then i guess the only way to keep your views intact is by trying to get people banned. This is exactly the behaviour one expects from zealots.

      You don't know that. Kubuntu, for example, is clearly considering not shipping Mir.

      It remains to be seen exactly how complicated it will be to strip out. If it's easy, i bet some won't. If it's baked into the very core of Ubuntu and almost impossible to remove, then you're probably right and it will remain in all derivatives.

      I think if Ubuntu makes it too hard to strip Mir, a lot of derivatives are going to be rebasing or quitting...
      To answer both:

      AFAIK the Kubuntu and Xubuntu guys have no plans to adapt KWin/Xfwm to support Mir natively. At some point, however, running Xorg stand-alone will no longer be supported (I expect 2016's LTS release to do this at the latest). Wayland may be inherited by *Ubuntu from Debian but also not in an officially supported way.

      One of the arguments for easy access for newcomers is the semi-automatic driver installer. Why should Canonical offer any but Mir-comparible drivers?
      Should Wayland and Mir require different drivers and neither Wayland not Xorg drivers are to be found in the repos, what would be the approach of least work? XMir obviously.

        Daily or hourly kernel panics?

        I don't think so. You lost your credit when you claimed you had hourly kernel panics. This clearly is not the standard experience a user will have with the catalyst driver. There might have been a driver version which did not work well with your card and led to hourly kernel panics but this is not the standard experience, not even close to it.

          Read these very forums. The facts are what the facts are whether you like them or not.

          EDIT: First you try to claim that the proprietary drivers are some kind of panacea, then you try to claim that the OSS drivers are some kind of bane. Seems to me like you are the one who lost his credit. You've done this with no evidence, no links, no benchmarks, no quotes. Nothing. You have nothing.

            Agree.


            BTW this is just tabloid like "news". Please Mr Michael keep it professional, don't post bullshit, thanks.

              I will run full test suit in several days; its not special optimizations - they are in GIT now; and the idea is NOT to outperform catalyst, but to IMPROVE the existing situation - the driver runs at 80%-110% of catalyst, which is SUFFICIENT.

              The rest does not interest much, because this was intersection between Vadim's testing and that of Michael - from intersection, one already sees +30%..+100% improvement on same card (5750) running similar tests, between opensource (Michael), catalyst(Michael) and opensource (Vadim).

              YOUR reality does NOT interest me! Opensource driver provides everything I need already.

              I am denying any criticism, I am denying your blatant claims - you are NOT using opensource driver on radeon; you have NO IDEA how far it progressed; I never denied the weak points of opensource driver; and I am not imposing you which driver you should run.
              For disrespecting very spirit of opensource - the core spirit of Linux - and harrasing its users - people should be punished, yes.

                I can't think of a single scenario where guaranteed daily or even hourly kernel panics are "superior in every way". Come on. Lets be realistic here.

                EDIT: The OSS drivers have superior desktop performance, hibernation works, I've never seen a kernel panic yet, Multimonitor configurations work great, 3d rendering is accurate and performance has exceeded early expectations.

                These are the facts whether you like them or not.
                Two AMD systems here, both with Catalyst. No kernel panics, no rendering glitches, hibernation works without any problems. Oh, and performance is not on par with the Windows Catalyst, but still better than the FOSS driver. And it has proper power management.

                A few years ago I worked for a OEM that delivered all PC systems with Ubuntu (8.04, later 10.04) by default, all with proprietary drivers. There were no problems at all with the AMD drivers (and FWIW, also not with the Nvidia drivers).

                These are the facts, whether you like them or not.

                  I never claimed that they won't work for some people. But that is few and far between. Just because you are able to be ignorant of it's buggyness doesn't mean that everyone else can. And -that- is the fact.

                    If you mean with "some people" literally thousands of delivered systems than you are right, those "few systems" obviously don't count as facts. Welcome to lala-land, where one persons experience count more than 1000s of successful deployments.

                      What you fail to realize is that a large proportion of those buyers -do- have problems and complain loudly. Many of them come right here to this very forum. Really when was the last time you looked at AMD bug tracker? It really is worth a good look.
