The port to WEC7 was done by another team.

I'm happy about all this new features from Intel. I actually use an nvidia (which works great but if i can come back from the dark side...).
Anyway i remember having bought a radeon 4670 a long time ago (when i have begun to read phoronix) to support AMD and their opensource policy... but i never used this card (the opensource or catalyst driver was too buggy/uncomplete) so i had to buy my nvidia..., and i'm afraid to think that it's always the case.
I dont understand the choice of AMD to provide 2 drivers, and i dont understand why they provide opensource driver which is in a state... (3D, video, powersaving...) . It' for me (excuse me M. Bridgman) a waste of time : either you provide a good closed source driver, either you provide a good open source driver (i preferre this one).
I know you do the best you can with your actual manpower.
I hope one day i could buy and use an AMD card, but i dont think it will be soon.
It was the last will of a disapointed AMD fan guy.
Michael should do a benchmark of Intel SB and/or IB and AMD APUs with catalyst/gallium. Seeing these improvements from Intel on the OSS driver, they should probably win at linux. AMD has the right features, just not on a single driver.
Have a new AMD Fusion type Graphics card here with using the closed drivers. works like a charm.

Asked and answered earlier in this thread, down to the same spelling mistakes and incorrect assertions.
