I would like to know, what is the fastest open source graphics driver versus graphics card combination?
Maybe that would be nice topic for an article?
What if one insist on using only open source drivers for it's graphics card?
What Could it buy and how would that measure to closed source drivers on same hardware?
And to put some price/performance in terms of open source drives usage, for hardware selection.
It used to be r300g + a higher end X1950, which got 80%-120% of the blob speed IIRC. Nowadays some hd4k and 5k cards are better in fps due to more raw power, but in terms of % from the blob they aren't as good yet.
