At Phoronix we have posted a new article. A link to this from your
site's news section would be greatly appreciated.

Title: AMD's New Catalyst Linux Driver Isn't Too Good ( -at -) Phoronix
Direct Link: http://www.phoronix.....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."
