    Default Gallium3D Continues Improving OpenGL For Older Radeon GPUs

    Phoronix: Gallium3D Continues Improving OpenGL For Older Radeon GPUs

    Curious to see how the performance of the open-source ATI/AMD Linux graphics driver is evolving for aging hardware, a new round of OpenGL benchmarks were carried out on the once-popular ATI Radeon HD 4870 "RV770" graphics card. The performance was compared between the Mesa 7.11, 8.0, 9.0, 9.1, and 9.2-devel Git releases from an Ubuntu Linux system to see how the performance has changed for this driver in the past two years.

    Michael,

    You can use this PPA in Ubuntu 13.04 to get FGLRX Legacy 13.1 to install. It will downgrade X-Server to 1.12.4 (which is maximum version supported by the drivers), but otherwise works fine for me on Ubuntu 13.04 with an ATI 4670.
