on open source ATI R600/700 3D support under Fedora 12. Using an experimental version of the Mesa drivers, which are available in the F12 repositories, Phoronix tried Compiz as well as several 3D games, reporting on the stability and rendering along with some screen shots. "First off, we would like to note that the ATI kernel mode-setting support by default in Fedora 12 has been working quite well from our testing. Even when using a dual-link DVI monitor running at 2560 x 1600, KMS has worked and properly mode-set to the right resolution. With a variety of hardware and different monitors, it has all worked quite well from this beta installation. When installing the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package, upon rebooting we were able to immediately enable Compiz support without any problems. Compiz was running well with no visual defects and the performance was suitable for the Linux desktop.
