    This also reminds me of how every once in a while, there's an ad for MS products on this website.

    Great. It would be awsome Linux catalyst vs Linux free driver (plus dpm (with the flag set in performance) + mesa 10.0) vs Windows 8.1. Afterall, this does not happen every day. It is important to know than W8.1 brings improvements for AMD cards.

    Excellent news. Where do you get the time to do all those tests?

    Working generally all day (12~14+ hours) and doing so 7 days a week, plus the automated support of the Phoronix Test Suite is a big factor in being able to get tests done properly and accurately and reproducible.
