    30+ pages filled images or graphs. The gist of it: 3D capabilities of open source drivers still suck, and the newer cards suck worse.

    Just use Nvidia.

    Better 3D performance.
    Better monitor support.
    Stuff like VA-API is actually supported.
    Stuff like CUDA and OpenCL if you tend to blither on about Beowulf...

    Open AMD drivers are actually usable: KDE4 composing, XV acceleration, not to mention 2D performance.

    In fact, I'd say that the OSS drivers have (or at least had 8 months ago when I still struggled with fglrx) better 2D performance, If you have a 4096x1536 desktop you could actually count the seconds it took to move a window. So I'd say that 2D performance is actually more important than 3D performance. If I want to game I run the gaming OS anyway (for 3D intensive stuff).
