I don't quite understand what you're trying to say.

That's the point of benchmarking. When Crysis came out, nothing could run it, and it was used as a benchmark for this exact reason.

And since ATI dropped their Catalyst driver for cards before r600, Linux users can only use this open source driver. And for many of them, performance is important. They cry on the internet about how they want optimisations. That's what Michael is reporting on.
