AMD Catalyst 8.12 Linux Driver
Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 8.12 Linux Driver
This afternoon AMD has released its final Catalyst Linux driver update for the year. It has been a couple months now since there has been anything exciting in one of these Linux driver updates, but what's there in store this time around? Is there X-Video Bitstream Acceleration finally available? Sadly, no. But there is improved video playback support in a composited environment and Hybrid CrossFire support.
Ah! so glad to be free of the closed source nastiness
I just wanted to say how wonderfully pleased I am with the Radeon driver shipped with Intrepid. No flicker, reliable suspend, compiz goodness - wonderful! No longer do I wait with baited breath for ATI driver 8.(n+1).
I feel truly sorry for all those people that have a card unsupported by the open driver.
