ASUS Radeon HD 3850 & 3870 on Linux

Last month AMD introduced the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series as "enthusiast gaming performance for the masses" through the Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870, which are both sub-$250 graphics cards. While rudimentary, the Catalyst 7.11 Linux driver (also released last month), supports these two RV670 GPUs with better support coming through the Catalyst 7.12 Linux driver this month. To see how well these two PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards are able to perform under Linux, ASUS had sent out their EAH3850 TOP and EAH3870 TOP. We have tested both of these graphics cards using Ubuntu 7.10 and have compared the results to other products using the fglrx driver, including the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB. These are the world's first Linux benchmarks of these new mainstream ATI graphics processors.

Great news for Linux-land. Can we talk? WTH is wrong with ATi when it comes to numbering Vidcards. If you didn't know, you'd think that HD3850 and HD3870 were more capable than a lowly HD2900XT. I didn't know that, along with millions of other computer users. Hey ATi, bite me! Idiots reign at AMD/ATi.

I disagree. In all fairness, the 38XX series perform better than the 29XX series on Windows. This is simply because the architecture for Windows is much simpler to build for (supposedly) and more supported. However, when it comes to Linux, the 29XX series have had more time to mature driver-side, so more optimisations will have been built for these cards simply due to timescales. I do agree with the last part, ATI have lost some of their "zing" since AMD took over. Most of the senior managers at ATI were fired when AMD took over. Shame really, they had a good standing against nVidia back in those days (i still remember so many people choosing an ATI card over the nVidia equivalent).
