Taking A Hit With ATI Graphics In Fedora 13 Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| In this article, we have ATI R500 tests using 
| their open-source driver stack as we test out 
| the OpenGL performance and the power 
| consumption, compared to Fedora 12.


The Real Need For Nouveau Power Management

,----[ Quote ]
| We have already published a look at the Fedora 
| 13 Beta, delivered ATI Radeon benchmarks atop 
| Fedora 13 Beta, and have other articles on the 
| way covering this new Fedora release, while in 
| this article we are investigating Nouveau's 
| power performance using this newest Fedora 
| release. If you are a mobile user planning to 
| use the Nouveau stack right now, or you care 
| the least bit about energy savings with your 
| desktop, its power consumption alone may rule 
| this open-source driver out as even a current 
| possibility.



Nouveau Now Switched On In Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| For those interested in proper OpenGL support for
| gaming or other situations, the NVIDIA binary
| driver can still be installed in Ubuntu 10.04.


Benchmarks Of Nouveau's Gallium3D OpenGL Driver

,----[ Quote ]
| To benchmark the Gallium3D driver in Fedora
| 13 for Nouveau we fired up the Phoronix
| Test Suite and ran the OpenArena, World of
| Padman, Urban Terror, Unreal Tournament
| 2004, and Warsow test profiles. We tested
| each of these OpenGL games at five
| different resolutions: 800 x 600, 1024 x
| 768, 1280 x 1024, 1680 x 1050, and 1920 x
| 1080.


A Nouveau 3D Driver That Works For Old NVIDIA Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| This afternoon, however, a new Mesa DRI
| driver has emerged for Nouveau that
| provides working 3D support for older
| NVIDIA hardware.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
