I have to say that there is no big difference for my HD4850. I still can't watch 720p, atleast GTK feels faster.
Sorry people,I'm a bit dumb....
How it is the support for the RS690 especially in a MythTv enviroment?
I would like switch from the FGLRX binary to this driver.
There goes EXA :(Code:
**) RADEONHD(0): Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
(**) RADEONHD(0): Option "UseAtomBIOS" "true"
(WW) RADEONHD(0): RV770: HW 2D acceleration is not implemented yet.
Card still runs too hot and moving a window or scrolling eats up all the CPU.
Uhm, just about all the basic functionality, 2d/3d acceleration and Xv is available for <r600.
Support for r600 and up is in the works, but these cards have a totally different architecture, and there are only a few open source developers who are able to work on the drivers at this time, because AMD is having problems clearing the documentation for release because of legal issues.
To be clear, the present situation as regards the open-source drivers is NO ONE's FAULT. It's a combination of limited resources and unforeseen problems. Whining that your HD2xxx H3xxx or HD4xxx card still doesn't work is NOT HELPFUL.
Whatever is happening to Gallium?
Why didnt AMD contract Tungsten for the driver, instead of Novel?
