    Default First Look: AMD Trinity APU, Linux Already Runs Well

    Phoronix: First Look: AMD Trinity APU, Linux Already Runs Well

    Remember those AMD Bulldozer benchmarks we showed back in March from an early engineering sample that was published to OpenBenchmarking.org by one of AMD's partners months prior to the product launch? Well, since the consumer-grade Bulldozer chips are going to be out soon, AMD's partners are already supplying information on the AMD Trinity APUs that won't be launched until next year. The Linux performance appears quite competitive and there's also some new codenames and details to share.

    Yeah, the numbers have been pulled and I cant find them on google cache either. I wonder if there is another type of cache out there were the numbers might still be available? Anybody know?

    By the time Trinity is officially out, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS should be here and hopefully with mature support and perhaps some performance optimizations within the GCC compiler.
    Lol, maybe you should look in the AMD/ATI forums section here. There's not even mature support for current and last generation AMD graphics on Linux. There's absolutely no reason to expect mature support for next gen AMD graphics on Linux.

    I recommend staying away from AMD graphics for at least another 5 years, maybe then the open drivers are mature enough. As for the proprietary drivers, they are a hopeless peace of junk reminiscent of the Windows 95 era, they will never be mature. It's impossible.

    He was referring to CPU support - hence the reference to GCC optimizations, which have nothing to do with graphics.

    I have 4850 and the oss drivers are working pretty darn good. I also have a 6870 which is still buggy, but are coming along real fast.

    You really should take the opportunity to try them out again before making statements like that. Otherwise if it isnt FUD, it damn sure looks like it.
