How far is this driver from running Heroes of Newerth? Or said in another way, when does this driver support opengl 2.1? Are we gonna wait for galium3d?
Thx for this great work!
Makes me wonder why they gave up on the Geode... they gave a chunk of the netbook market away to the Via Nano.
When does the appropriate code will be included in the kernel source? Or is it already?
I currently cannot compile the agd5f branch, it fails somehow :
I don't mind compiling mesa, libdrm or xf86-video-ati from git but I usually prefer to stick to standard kernel sources.root@coyote:/usr/src/CVS/drm/linux-core# make
sh ../scripts/create_linux_pci_lists.sh < ../shared-core/drm_pciids.txt

For anyone who's interested, current rumours put Evergreen (The internal codename's not R800 as far as I know) in mid-September. It's a 40nm part so from transistor count alone it should be twice as fast as the first R700 chip.
we buy amd desktop cpus, because these cpus are good (bang for the bug)
i dont buy amd mobile cpus because there is nothing good about them...
compared to current intel cpus they just cant compete..
if they would release new 45nm cpus i'd buy them without much thought, but they dont release them, so i have to stick with intel (and i really dont like intel)
and i mostly look at benchmarks that test battery life while surfing, because thats what you do most of the time..
and intel systems usually do better on those.
i kinda am an amd fanboy but i have to use this notebook for years and so i will buy the best combination available at this point.
i already thought about buying a netbook and sell it, when there are some new amd notebooks, but i dont really know if i have that kind of money
