Well, its not perfect (maximizing HD videos or Firefox takes some time with compiz activated), but at least no flickering or tearing or split movies.
My card is a 3870.
I can say after 1,5 years of owning the card, I see light at the end of the tunnel! And it seems it is not a train! :-)
Hope they will ship r300-gallium with it ! It was postponed but, as the release will happen next week, hope it will be OK for inclusion.Re: [Mesa3d-dev] Mesa 7.5 plans

It looks I'll be postponing the 7.5 release until next week...
Nevertheless, I'm really looking forward for it. As soon as mesa 7.5 is released, I'll try the radeon-rewrite branch !
As of last night MostAwesomeDude was giving thought (on #radeon) to leaving the r300 gallium code in now that the code is in better shape.
For using the old-style Mesa drivers, should one use 7.5 or 7.4.1? Considering 7.4 had the transparency bug, are there reasons on why use either release that fixes it?
