    ATI has just released brand new Linux display drivers (version 8.41.7) designed to support Red Hat Enterprise Linux suite and Novell/SuSE product suite. This release of the Catalyst Linux driver introduces significant OpenGL performance improvements for a variety of ATI Radeon graphics accelerators for OpenGL consumer based games such as Doom 3 and Quake 4. This release of Catalyst also supports all ATI Radeon HD 2000 video cards.

    I saw an early review of these drivers, supposed to increase performance by ~100% more or less on some cards.

    Check this review out-
    R300/R400
    R500
    R600

    Unfortunately this is only "recommended" for the HD 2000 series... us "legacy" folk will have to wait for the October driver. Bright sides is October driver with finally support AIGLX for compositing. (i.e. Compiz-Fusion)
