AMD Radeon HD 8670D: Gallium3D vs. Catalyst
Written by Michael Larabel in Display Drivers on 5 July 2013. Page 4 of 4. 68 Comments

The Radeon Gallium3D performance for the Radeon HD 8670D graphics on the A10-6800K "Richland" APU is still a long ways from hitting the AMD Catalyst proprietary driver performance, but at least this open-source Radeon Linux graphics driver has been moving in the right direction. There's lots of good code on the horizon with dynamic power management in Linux 3.11, continued Radeon Gallium3D driver improvements, and much more. All of these changes, of course, will be benchmarked on Phoronix.
