Submission + - FLOSS 3D Driver Runs 60~70% Of Proprietary Driver (phoronix.com)

An anonymous reader writes: AMD's Radeon HD 6000 series open-source Gallium3D driver for Linux is now working and running at 60~70% (in some cases, 80%) the speed of the official proprietary "Catalyst" driver. This is a big speed improvement in Mesa/Gallium3D compared to the times when the performance was crippling or even just a few years ago when AMD didn't support open-source drivers. When will NVIDIA change ways?
