AMD Catalyst vs. Radeon Gallium3D On Linux 3.1
Phoronix: AMD Catalyst vs. Radeon Gallium3D On Linux 3.1
If you are not taken by today's release of Ubuntu 11.10 "Oneiric Ocelot", here are some new Radeon graphics benchmarks comparing the Catalyst driver on Ubuntu 11.10 to the latest R600g driver from Mesa 7.12-devel on the soon-to-be-released Linux 3.1 kernel.
VDrift benchmarks are meaningless
There's no point in continuously showing the VDrift performance results with the Gallium drivers if the rendering output is so horribly broken. That's equivalent to benchmarking AES encryption that spits out invalid data.
