    Default A 40-Way Gallium3D Graphics Card Comparison

    Phoronix: A 40-Way Gallium3D Graphics Card Comparison

    If you're not following me on Twitter, you're missing out on news and some very interesting photos that were posted this weekend. No, it's not of the latest beer, but of a feast of graphics cards. A 40-way comparison of NVIDIA/AMD graphics cards on Linux with the open-source Mesa/Gallium3D drivers versus their proprietary brethren is being carried out for publishing in September...

    Default Can't wait for your cool stuff!

    I think your tests are very important for linux graphics world right now, when opensource drivers get many new cool features.

    I can't lend my nvidia card to extend the test to older hardware generations... my XFX GeForce FX 5200 has just died.

    Default Which cards are going to be tested?

    @phoronix
    I'm especially curious to know if you have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti and a ATI Radeon HD 5850. Are you also going to test OpenCL performance?

    Thanks

    OpenCL, probably not since it doesn't work with open-source drivers.

    That's amazing - I hope it'll help me in deciding which nVidia desktop card to go with next (I'd like it to be super beefy, such that unigine heaven scores 60fps, at least)
