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."

RE: Windows need stable drivers

This is good news. Now if only we can get some REAL (read stable) drivers for windows. There haven't been stable drivers since the 8.x series (years?)

I keep hearing things like this yet every Windows system I've ever used with ATI hardware has been rock solid. The complete opposite for NVIDIA hardware.
