Linux "Now that the kernel mode-setting page-flipping for the ATI Radeon DRM kernel module has been merged into the Linux 2.6.38 kernel and the respective bits have been set in the xf86-video-ati DDX, we're in the process of running new open-source ATI graphics benchmarks under Linux. Our initial results (included in this article) show these latest improvements to cause some major performance boosts for the open-source ATI driver as it nears the level of performance of the proprietary Catalyst driver."

i'm not trolling but this means that in a few years ati drivers will be as good as nvidia drivers. Hope the driver will be for older cards too, cause i'm running latest nvidia driver on a onboard geforce 6150 and works great

The Nouveau NVIDIA driver is pretty bad. So its more like the other way around. The Nouveau NVIDIA driver is playing catch up. Your post is nothing but troll.
