Another annual tradition of ours besides running a Linux
Graphics Survey is to provide a "year in review" analysis of the ATI and
NVIDIA Linux drivers with their respective graphics driver releases from
the past year in terms of both feature improvements and how their
quantitative performance has changed. We have been doing these annual
ATI and NVIDIA yearly reviews going back to 2005, but now it's time to
share our thoughts and numbers for 2009. We are beginning with our
NVIDIA Linux 2009 Year In Review.
