More AMD Radeon 5770 Linux Benchmarks

“The test system remained the same with an Intel Core i5 870
clocked at 2.93GHz with Turbo Boost, an Intel DP55KG Kingsberg
motherboard, 2GB of OCZ DDR3 memory, a 64GB OCZ Vertex SSD, and a
Samsung SyncMaster 305T LCD. On the software side we were still
running Ubuntu 9.10 with the Linux 2.6.31 kernel, GNOME 2.28.0, X
Server 1.6.3, and fglrx 8.67 / OpenGL 2.1.9115.

“For this article we are looking at the Anti-Aliasing /
Anisotropic Filtering performance with the Radeon HD 4870 512MB,
Radeon HD 5750 1GB, and Radeon HD 5770 1GB graphics cards. In all
of the benchmarks we are about to share we used 12x edge-detect AA
with 4x AF. Using the Phoronix Test Suite we looked at this AA/AF
combination performance on the three graphics cards when running
VDrift, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Unigine Tropics, and
Lightsmark when running at 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1280
x 980, 1440 x 900, 1280 x 1024, 1400 x 1050, 1680 x 1050, 1600 x
1200, 1920 x 1080, and 2560 x 1600. Without the Phoronix Test
Suite, this certainly would have been a tedious and consuming
process, but fortunately it just took PTS running a batch benchmark
and then using the analyze-batch commands to generate — days later
with each test at each resolution running multiple times.”
