I recently compared ATI's Catalyst drivers for Windows
and the fglrx drivers from Schneider Digital for XFree 4.3.x. I used these OpenGL test programs for comparison and these were my results:
Fps on Linux
Fps on Windows
As you can see, we are getting roughly 36% less fps on Linux compared to the Catalyst
drivers. Btw, these tests were run on Lenin.
Tried the 3.2.8 drivers (now available from ati.com.) today, the OpenGL performance is roughly (no more
than 9 frames difference) the same as in the table above. Last benchmark was done with a
2.x driver, I'm wondering what justifies the new major number :P.
