XAA? You've got to be kidding!
(the one from the archive fglrx-8.650-ubuntu9.04-amd64only.7z)
at least thats what the driver calls itself on my system.
Code:dmesg | grep fglrx fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel. [fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 7760 MBytes.

Heh, seems the results Qaridarium linked to have been promptly removed. ^^
All the tests I have linked to are removed as well. Very strange.
However... google cache is your friend .

I think somebody messed up (could be Phoronix, an AMD guy or some lucky guy who got his hands on a sample) and now they try to cover everything up.
It probably is semi-trivial to fake those results at worst by using a hex editor, at best an editor and a compiler, so I wouldn't really trust their validity much unless someone actually confirms them. (which doesn't seem likely)
The results did not look like fakes, but the cpu was really slow. Of course faking is always possible, but i did not see any obivious fakes yet. But wrong results (due to errors which made em run much quicker than normal) i saw already several. Like when you bench against a profile and your display size is smaller then you get better results. Extreme results you see then for vdrift as not the original settings are used then but a fallback default. Other results are also faster but not so extremely false.
