    Default Which is better for 3d acceleration

    ATI 5750
    GTX 460
    GTS 450

    How do these cards compare for 3 acceleration? (in linux of course)

    Also is there any significant performance difference between Ubuntu and Fedora (using the same drivers)? and for 3d in general (regardless of brand/video card)?

    cheers

    The GTX-460 will give you the best performance in linux with the nvidia binary drivers.

    If amd blob won't be that buggy and feature-less, and would be supporting legacy hardware - there would be some equality. Opensource is barely supported(nvidia unsupported at all).
    Yep, modern graphics hardware sucks. OpenGL is patented. Only windows drivers have attention. Everyone is proud to be microsoft slave.

    Buy the 5750. Proper open source support rather than flaky and useless blob drivers.

    No you didn't.
    The nvidia blob is unreliable trash from a hostile organization. Let that be well understood.

    And isn't it about time for you to go back to your blob OS? What do they call it? Oh right, Winbloze.

    No, No you said it wrong deanjo, the GTX 560 as released within two days from now is better and has better support than the initial open source support for hd5xxx cards now apparently

    do you know amd fight against the HDR/floading point graphik SGI patent for using it on non microsoft platforms.

    means amd fight for the opensource driver.

    on the first round amd slap SGI hard and maybe they win in the next round to.

    i hope ati/amd win this fight then we can get an OpenGL3 opensource driver.

    Nvidia seam to support OpenGL better.

    Both quickly added support for OpenGL 4.0, but with 4.1 AMD lagged behind.

    For good comparison, look for Heaven benchmarks, they use OGL4.
