we also ran this latest driver stack (Linux 3.0 + Mesa 7.11-devel) when disabling Swapbufferswait and enabling color-tiling
No, seriously. I agree that you should run more demanding benchmarks because when everything is 60+ or even 100+ fps nobody really cares how fast it really is.
It would be interesting to know if the issues that bring the fps down so extremely as in nexuiz go away if you run it without compositing. But in earlier benchmarks the performance was slower when not using compositing with open source radeon...
Nice colors for the charts... blue, green... blue... and green!
Dear Phoronix, can you share your xorg.conf for Ati R600 drivers and other tweaks in config files if need it, pleas? I'd like to try it myselft on non-production PC with Xorg edgers PPA and linux 3 kernel debs from Ubuntu PPA.
As for adding optimisations or using anything other than the default kernel your distro provides, I think a  should be used...
