Well, the Radeon 9200 is actually supposed to be the fastest video card
with open 3d support right now. (not on par with the closed driver, but
working at least)

Looks like it'll be the G400/G500 Linux successor for some time. ATI
should thank the people who paid for developement of an open driver for
their cards. They'll sure get some sells they don't deserve now.
