"With the Radeon HD 4850 we were using the same hardware and software from our previous article. This included an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 at 4.00GHz, ASUS P5E64 WS Professional motherboard, 2GB of OCZ DDR3 memory, 160GB WDC WD1600JS-00MHB0 SATA HDD, and a Samsung SyncMaster 305T 30-inch LCD. Ubuntu 8.10 was used with the Linux 2.6.27 kernel, X Server 1.5.2, GNOME 2.24.1, and GCC 4.3.2. On the proprietary side we were using the Catalyst 8.12 driver while on the open-source side we were using the r6xx-r7xx-support code from the Mesa/DRM and xf86-video-radeonhd driver Git branches as of January 18. The basic EXA acceleration that was introduced with last month's code drop was used on the open-source side. The Phoronix Test Suite was used to facilitate this 2D Linux testing."
