    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).

One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.

Working...
