    At last... I can now dust off that x1600XT and retire the reliable yet slow Geforce FX 5500. By the way Michael, I knew it .

    Hahahaha. Of course it probably doesn't mean anything . But I'm throwing out a good guess out there. Maybe that'll spark you guys up a bit. Definitely is fun. Plus my birthday is in this month so maybe that'll contribute, ATI/AMD can give me a birthday gift.
    Yep, I knew it hehe, except I didn't know it was tonight the results would come. This is very exciting. I definately know what my next machine is going to have, thank you ATI/AMD.

    Edit:

    Oh by the way Michael, hows the anti aliasing performance now? Is it the way it should be now too?

    One thing is bugging me though. No word about using the videoplayback acceleration for ATI cards. Someone has a clue?
    I would like to know that too. Fully Functional videoplayback acceleration it is a must for me.

    Michael, can you give us a hint on that?

    Thanks for the good news.

    Aside from performance, I am looking forward to Xrandr 1.4 and Xorg 7.3 support in general (are my version numbers right?).

    As someone who insists on using Linux in the office, being able to move between projectors and secondary monitors quicker and easier would be a huge plus.

    Any news on this? Or is it the same story as AIGLX?

    At any case, hopefully the new code base makes it easier for the developers to keep up with new features if nothing else.

    Quite frankly I'm just startled you managed to get an x1950PRO running in Linux at all. Maybe I won't have to sell that stupid video card after all.

    Yeah, and I hope the new codebase fixes the whole AGP bus issue that plagues me and Alistair and anyone else with a AGP X1k card.

    Just my luck...

    My hdd failed this night, now I'm using my father's laptop (ugh...IE).

    I'm delighted with the new driver though

    I'll be back when I get a new harddisk..

    Cheers guys!

    its on the second page of the 8.41 driver preview

    Where's AIGLX? Well, unfortunately due to delays later in their development cycle for the 8.41 driver, AIGLX was pushed out of this month's development and release cycle. The AIGLX support will, however, arrive next month with the fglrx 8.42 driver.

    what about "desktop performance"....with <8.41 ( specialy in KDE) flickering is very noticeable and very annoying.

    Any improvements here?
