    I hope that soon enough, you'll be able to test the driver, and the hardware on Linux, Michael. I'd really be interested in seeing how well it performs, how does it compare to the earlier tests you ran on cheap hardware and nVidia GFX with VDPAU and how well does it do 3D compared to Intel, nVidia and ATi (on reasonably similar hardware... Do we even know how many stream processors the 500 series pack or if it has a vertex engine? How about memory interface, etc?)

    I seriously think that any claims by s3 at this point should be taken with a grain of salt. The fact that their decidedly closed-source driver modules report themselves as GPL ought to tell you something.

    If there's someone with a Chrome 500 who can test this driver, *then* maybe we can find out how well it actually works and what its actual capabilities are.

    fglrx isn't the greatest, but if you really believe S3's drivers are better, then I've got some ocean-front property in Bolivia I'd like to sell you.

    Or maybe you're just a frustrated ATI customer that wanted to take a shot at ATI...

    I guess nobody really tested that card with Linux yet. The drivers are 32 bit only and contain a binary blob for the kernel module. So they have to change the licence for it to S3 or whatever - at least not GPL.
