Look, I appreciate the work you're doing and all that, but now you're simply pulling my leg.

You do have the point, though, in that the rate of development of open drivers often makes it difficult to follow which xorg options are still valid (and used), which options are new, and what they do. Hopefully things will stabilise as the drivers mature.
EDIT: yes, I understand that this is an Ubuntu benchmark, but still, all these community sites simply parrot things from the radeon man page, which is the same for ALL distributions.
While it's true that the man radeon contains the information you need, man-pages can be a bit daunting. Just check the man xorg.conf. How many Linux users actually understand what it says + how meticulously is it updated?

EDIT: Oh, and I just want to make clear that I haven't actually read the radeon man page. Didn't realize there was one, so I'll check it out later.
10.04 LTS runs Compiz just fine on my 4670. I don't ask for anymore than that. I feel bad for the non-LTS users serving as defacto beta-testers 75% of the time.
