AMD's New Catalyst Linux Driver Isn't Too Good

Title: AMD's New Catalyst Linux Driver Isn't Too Good ( -at -) Phoronix

Direct Link: http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=18165

Summary: "Last week marked the release of a new AMD Catalyst Linux

driver beta that was intended to improve the AMD Radeon OpenGL

performance. AMD said this updated closed-source Linux graphics driver

would bring "significant performance improvements" for Valve's recently

ported Left 4 Dead 2 Linux game. Curious about AMD Linux OpenGL

performance improvements elsewhere, I ran some benchmarks of this new

driver on several different graphics cards. Unfortunately, the

performance improvements aren't too widespread and there's other

problems making this beta driver not appealing."
