    Phoronix: Using The New Radeon Gallium3D 2D Color Tiling

    Patches finally arrived last week for 2D color tiling in the Radeon R600 Gallium3D driver. The patches were then re-based this past weekend and benchmarked by Phoronix. Will the 2D color tiling patches, which affect the Linux kernel, Mesa, libdrm, and xf86-video-ati DDX make the more recent Radeon graphics cards more competitive under open-source to the Catalyst driver?

    Default Thank you :)

    Thank you Michael for these benchmarks Once the bugs are fixed, I hope that there will be a good (~20-30%) performance improvement, but now all we can do is to test the patches to speed up the development. AMD's opensource drivers are becoming, month after month, more suitable for general purpose use.

    I agree, exciting times for us in the Radeon camp! Perhaps some testing is needed? I have an ASUS RADEON HD4850 with 512MB of memory.

    Way to go devs!!! And thank you Michael for the current status of the project. While it is not currently a work of art, I'm sure it will get there. I can't wait until this is more stable ~ excited to test it out! HD5770

    Agreed! This is good news. Thanks Michael for keeping us abreast on Radeon driver developments, and thanks to the dev's for the hard work!

    I see absolutely no purpose in a benchmark when one driver does not render the same things as the other one does. Those numbers are just wrong and it is even wrong to publish em - it is logical that when you leave out something that it will be faster. In a test without rendering artefacts the speed was not better, so i do not get why somebody should be excited...
