Radeon Gallium3D OpenGL Performance From Fedora 18 To Fedora 23
With the Tesseract open-source game the R600g driver with HD 5830 saw its performance boosted by 70% from Fedora 18 to Fedora 23! Fortunately, here, there were no performance regressions to speak of.
When running Xonotic with low image quality settings, it failed on Fedora 18 but with Fedora 19~21 is where the best performance was being delivered before regressing.
Plot3D is another example showing the nice evolution of the open-source Radeon Linux driver performance.
