    Phoronix: Radeon HyperZ R300g Performance

    With Marek Olk having fixed-up the R300 Gallium3D HyperZ support and then finally enabling this performance-boosting technology by default for the vintage Radeon X1000 (R500) series graphics cards, new benchmarks were conducted to look at the performance impact of ATI HyperZ finally being flipped on in this legacy ATI Linux graphics driver.

    These are very positive results. It's worth remembering that even more could be gained from HyperZ than what is shown here if other performance aspects are improved... if my understanding is correct.

    Cool And the other point is...

    ... that HyperZ now works for all of these different applications!

    Wow! This should make Radeon X1000-series users happy. All 20 of them

    You would be surprised, that for many X1000 is just enough. This commits make X1000, the most supported legacy GPU. Even Intel don't provide that much support for legacy GPUs.

    I doubt users left with such old cards are using them for any 3D intensive work. But it's nice that the feature can be used, no doubt about that.
    As far as legacy GPUs are concerned, the latest driver for nvidia FX5000 series was released just two months ago.

    Intel recently updated 815, I still use that and I am really thankful for this.
