Phoronix has a new article up looking at open source performance on the AMD R500 chipset:

From the release of Mesa 7.1 Release Candidate 1 to Multi-Pointer X being merged to master to the R500 3D milestone, it’s been an exciting past 24 hours for the X.Org community. With the open-source 3D support for the Radeon X1000 “R500″ GPUs now reaching a parity with the Mesa support for earlier ATI Radeon product families, more Linux users can now consider turning to an open-source driver (xf86-video-ati or xf86-video-radeonhd) for their video driver needs. In this article we are looking at what Linux games work thanks to this latest Mesa R500 support.
