    Phoronix: ATI Linux 2009 Year In Review

    Compared to past years when recapping the AMD/ATI Linux advancements over the past calendar year, 2009 was not quite as exciting, which can be viewed as both good and bad for their Catalyst Linux driver. There were many advancements this year on AMD's open-source side, but in 2009 there wasn't as many milestones for their Catalyst driver like in the past with the introduction of CrossFire, OverDrive, same-day Linux support, the AMD Catalyst Control Center, and other new features. Here is our 2009 year in review look at AMD's advancements to their proprietary Catalyst Linux driver along with our annual benchmarks.

    I have written my own "ATI Linux 2009 Year In Review" for the open source drivers.

    +1 Agreed!

    EDIT:
    BTW, my first AMD hardware entered the house previous week because of the OS support guys. Thanks and keep it up!

    Not forgetting the Gallium work, which might leap jump classic Mesa.

    Yes, seeing that RadeonFeature in comparison with the old one you can really see a difference. And I note it, too since I switched away from fglrx (that never ran on this box due to lame kernel/X support, but I actually needed at least a 2.6.29.x for the mainboard to work). I just hope to see all that R600+ stuff getting to fly soon, and please with power management.

    Yeah, and not forgetting the Gallium work, which we didn't even have for a year ago

    Year in Review:
    2D works
    3D doesn't work - either crashes or fails

    *just noticed if you have a Lenovo Thinkpad with Display Port, you're out of luck as it's not supported at all....

    I just installed Fedora 12 on HP 17" laptop with ATI Mobile chip and it works with opensource radeon driver just great when on Fedora 10 I just had to install ATI proprietary driver right away to get anything to work on that laptop.

    So obviously the opensource drivers have gone a long way in one year... but ofcourse YMMV...
