So naturally, two of my three radeon systems, and the only one without enough CPU power to cut through 1080P (which also happens to be my HTPC), fall into the RS780/880 category.
Good thing I have a crystalhd in that one, but the crystalhd is a bit flakey because the decoded video needs to be shunted back from the crystalhd, through the CPU, and out to the video card. I.e., in all of its massive rawness.
So you say that Zacate E-350 UVD3 fusion gpus is supported with this drop?
he's referring to Catalyst. nvidia official driver typically has same-week support of xorg servers. catalyst can lag behind by weeks or even months. in the meantime those users are stuck on the last supported release.Quote:
Don't know what kind of drugs you're on, but same microsecond support for the latest xorg release is pretty damned good if you ask me.
See previous response.
So I am as much excited than I was when amd bought ati and I knew they would most likely open the specs.
Thats so fuckin great... thx!
Now its pretty obvious from what company you should buy gpus or fusion stuff, if you want new hardware. there is not any reason now to buy a intel gpu instead. Of course people that dont care about driver freedom and really want to hardcore game under linux, there is maybe nvidia still the better alternative (cant really compary nvidia blobs and catalyst to long ago that I used em).
And because Amd ist most of the time cheaper than intel on the same performence level, amd is in 90-99% the best solution for linux users now.
Oh my now linux htpc´s will become a real big thing ;)
THX AGAIN for that great work :D
Oh, and Chris Wilson is doing an AMAZING job at maintaining the driver and providing basically weekly / bi weekly releases to fix bugs, unlike the ATI driver that only seems to get a release when a critical bug is fixed or a new xorg server comes out. Release early, release often.
Sorry AMD, I really appreciate the work going on in the driver, and I do benefit from it because my second laptop has an AMD 4000 series GPU. But all my laptops from here on out will be strictly intel with integrated graphics, desktop I'll still go discrete but I really believe that FOSS intel vs FOSS radeon.... FOSS intel wins, and a big part of that is how often Chris ships releases to fix bugs, whether they are trivial or critical.
