    Unless you have cashed those litecoins in, it has not paid for itself at all yet (especially the way the crypto currencies fluctuate wildly in value.).

    Nothing to say, if you want use wine NVIDIA is your only option for now and appaprently in long time

    I cashed out everything I had at the end of November to treat the family for Christmas, so really the card paid for Christmas rather than paying for itself as I originally said

    I'm sitting on the coins I've mined since then, hopefully the rate will jump back up but if it crashes to nothing I've not really lost anything other than the cost of the electricity. For me it's just a bit of fun putting my PC to work for once rather than just using it for entertainment.

    Cut and paste time again.

    Phoronix does not benchmark <insert game here> because it does not have a benchmark mode for Linux or has a benchmark that is hard to automate. (For source, it is hard to automate I beleive).

    These tests use the following opengl levels.

    Unigine requires openGL 3.2 (and higher if available)
    Xonotic openGL 2.0
    Open Arena openGL ES

    As you can see, they cover a decent selection of the openGL feature set. Performance improvements (or regressions) detected by these benchmarks are likely to indicate improvements (or regressions) in other games using the same opengl level.

    If you want things to change. Please kindly ask game/benchmark developers to create a benchmark of their game engine that can be launched from the command line. Preferably one that is self contained so it can easily be transferred to the test machines.

    Damn did all of you wake up with sand in your panties? Seriously, everyone is nitpicking over the dumbest things or coming up with the worst ideas. Like really, boycotting until they fix things? AMD isn't giving linux users attention because they're already financially struggling and linux is not helping pay the bills. Even if their drivers were better in linux than they were in windows, linux still wouldn't be helping them out enough.

    OpenArena does not use OpenGL ES! It uses OpenGL 1.x stuff.

    Xonotic needs some OpenGL 3.x features to run best, but it can also run on OpenGL 2.x, OpenGL 1.x, Direct3D 9 and software renderer.

    Last I checked some AMD cards were again going out of stock, due to big demand from the altcoin miners. A fair amount of those mine under Linux.

    Is that not Linux helping pay the bills?
