    I am voting for xf86-video-radeonhd. Great driver and I am looking forward for great performance on 3d.

    There should be such driver with support from AMD.

    Note that neither radeon nor radeonhd have much to do with 3D -- that is all implemented in the mesa and drm drivers. The X drivers (radeon and radeonhd) just handle modesetting and 2D acceleration. They can either do 2D acceleration themselves or run over drm - but if you want 3D then the 2D acceleration needs to go through drm as well.

    You need (radeon or radeonhd) plus mesa plus drm to get a full accelerated driver stack.

    For now fglrx can't show video in compiz-fusion without blinking The open source drivers are giving 10-20 FPS in the 3d games in linux for my M56 videocard

    But with radeonhd I've received more stable work than ati. I have X crashed 10 times a day with xf86-video-ati. With radeonhd - no crashes at all. It is important for me

    P.S. Thanks for information about role of these drivers for ATI videocards.
