As noted earlier in the week, the open-source AMD Radeon
"R600g" driver that supports 3D acceleration on Radeon HD 2000 series
graphics cards through the latest Radeon HD 6000 and Fusion graphics
processors, is becoming quite fit. The driver is nearing a point of
stability, is mature enough for most desktop users, and it is beginning
to receive some performance optimizations and other improvements. Thanks
to this recent work, plus the ongoing development of the Linux 3.0
kernel, here is a fresh set of AMD Gallium3D Linux driver benchmarks.
