3D Graphics hardware performance using Free Software drivers (X.Org DRI)

Mar 31, 2009, 12:33 (1 Talkback[s])

"Some users opt to install proprietary graphics card drivers because of the limited support available in current free software drivers. X.Org includes Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI) support for a variety of 3D graphics hardware but often doesn’t support every feature or doesn’t offer performance as fast as that of the proprietary drivers. This website was created for those of us who prefer to use only Free Software or Open Source software. It provides information about video cards with 3D acceleration support and benchmarks to give an idea of their performance. We also provide performance information for cards that rely solely on software emulation for 3D support."
