Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

Before the end of this year, people who are fortunate enough to have ATI cards and have Linux installed will enjoy by far the best-performing bang-for-buck desktop systems on the planet.


You realize that the end of this year is in under 4 months? I think it may be difficult to take the software from the current state to "best performing" in that time. Do you truly feel this is a reasonable expectation, or are you just marketing?
