    "there was still the watermark in the lower right hand corner stating that this was unsupported hardware."

    in other words amd do not support linux yet for this card.

    i wait for the radeon driver to end this joke.

    I do not get the watermark with 12.2... but I get it with 12.1. Why do we get different results? And what is the other difference with the driver you are using? My OpenGL Version string is different to the one Michael is posting.

    Exclamation There is an error in Catalyst rendering?

    As you can see in this screenshot, there is a difference in rendering between the two drivers and the nVidia binary driver has the same output of r300g and r600g drivers, that has been discussed in this topic. Almost all have thought it is Mesa's fault/radeon driver's fault, but now there are two possibilities:
    1. The error is in Catalyst implementation;
    2. The error is in nVidia blobs AND in r300g/r600g implementations.

    What do you think about this?

    PS. The screenshot of r300g/r600g renderings is this.

    Default PNG instead of JPEG

    Please consider using PNG instead of JPEG in image quality comparisons.

    Michael,

    It seems that your parts listing for the Intel Core i7-3960X in the article is incorrectly displaying 12 cores, when it should be 12 threads instead.
