Last week prior to heading over to Germany for LinuxTag, I had
ran a new set of ATI R500 Gallium3D benchmarks with an ATI Radeon
X1950PRO graphics card and comparing the latest Mesa/Gallium3D graphics
driver performance in the Mesa 7.9-devel Git code with both the
Gallium3D and classic Mesa DRI drivers to the older Mesa stack found in
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. The ATI "R300g" driver as its known continues to
advance, and over the past week this driver has pushed forward even
more. Here is another set of ATI Gallium3D tests.
