    It looks like we have fixed something very fundamental, but looking over the commits between 3.11 and 3.12 doesn't show anything that could cause this.

    Could somebody please do a bisect to figure out what's happening here?

    Thanks in advance,
    Christian.

    I know someone who refuses to use open source drivers with his Radeon GPU because he needs to set a specific voltage/fan speed and downclock slightly or else his graphics card will be unstable.
    Forgot to say this, I pity the fool who does not return clearly faulty hw under warranty.

    nice! I cannot find packages for suse however...http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...?query=driconf

    the source should be here, but all links there are broken!
    http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/DriConf/

    does anyone have a working link to a source-tarball for me???

    Seems you'll need to grab it off SourceForge SVN.

    there it is - http://sourceforge.net/projects/driconf/
    they do not even have a tarball there but SVN should work for me

    Do you have visuals when running PTS?
    Could it be that some functions like anti-aliasing, which is supposed to be turned on, is actually malfunctioning, resulting in higher but non comparable tests?

    PTS does screenshots if you enable the module, maybe in a next article?

    @Michael
    I agree about maximizing views but if you plan to bisect it, then please do it ASAP and point agd5f to the culprit commit, at least privately...
    I would do it myselft but I don't have access to any hardware right now.

    Maybe because such things usually happen after the first year?
