    Hmm, in that case I'm curious as well .
    But... how does he know that all those beta drivers are so good when he isn't in the closed beta? At least he must have access to the drivers from the closed beta.

    if you search the internal driver numbers on google you will find something!

    exampel there is an result for an unleaked driver named 8.65.4 google:"fglrx 8.65.4"

    last leaket driver was 8.65.3

    you see? thats easy!

    You find 1 for 8.65.4 and 2 for 8.65.3 and all links point to phoronix.

    A shame, no one can send a patrol of lawyers after him to keep him quiet for a while.

    Searching on "fglrx 8.65.4" is very interesting!

    Graphics: EG Cypress (new DirectX 11 card of AMD is called Evergreen Cypress).

    is it just me or do those results seem really random?

    126fps in uniguine sanctuary, but only 76 in ET: quake wars? etc.

    Well, the results might be off... Could be because these Linux drivers are not yet optimal for the new GPU. But it definitely looks like leaked AMD R8xx tests as performed by Phoronix (the url from google shows u=root, so I assume it is a test done by Michael).

    No Cypress testing was done by me or anyone affiliated with Phoronix.

    Hmm, I did some testing and I saw that if you run the test as root, the link to the results will include `u=root'. So it could indeed very well be that somebody else ran some benchmarks... perhaps use some kind of hack to change the name of the graphics card. Or perhaps not...
