AMD Radeon HD 7950 Running On Linux
Phoronix: AMD Radeon HD 7950 Running On Linux
Here's the first bits of information following Phoronix tests of the "Southern Islands" AMD Radeon HD 7950 graphics card running under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with the Linux 3.2 kernel and the AMD Catalyst driver...
There is an error in Catalyst rendering?
As you can see in this screenshot, there is a difference in rendering between the two drivers and the nVidia binary driver has the same output of r300g and r600g drivers, that has been discussed in this topic. Almost all have thought it is Mesa's fault/radeon driver's fault, but now there are two possibilities:
1. The error is in Catalyst implementation;
2. The error is in nVidia blobs AND in r300g/r600g implementations.
What do you think about this?
PS. The screenshot of r300g/r600g renderings is this.
