AMDs Radeon Gallium3D Starts Posing A Threat To Catalyst - AMDs Radeon Gallium3D Starts Posing A Threat To Catalyst
Sat, Nov 02 2013 | 10:58AM | Filed under: Drivers| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

With recent milestones like the Radeon performance improvements in Linux 3.12 that come as a side-effect from a CPUfreq change, Radeon DPM, and the improvements found by the upcoming Mesa 10.0 release, and numerous other open-source driver improvements, the AMD`s Radeon Gallium3D performance is very competitive to AMD`s Catalyst driver. This close level of performance is for the R600 Gallium3D driver with GPUs like the Radeon HD 5000/6000 series graphics cards. Here`s some benchmarks showing how the open-source AMD Radeon performance compares today to the closed-source Catalyst driver on Windows and Ubuntu Linux. In some of today`s new data, the open-source driver was running 80%+ the speed of AMD`s Catalyst driver."
