It just shows how much worse (in terms of 3D performance) the older codebase was.

did you see my video few post back. Do you have any problems like that? Flickering with konqueror while file browsing?

Yes, it is a known issue. However, we have to accept, it is an improvement, finally...

Michael, any chance you could run the benchmarks from 8.41.6 on 8.41.7 (same hardware, etc.)? To my mind this would kill the "deceptive hype" complaint.

When everything that used to work with 8.21 will work again, I will accept that as an improvement. The concept seems twisted but it's really all I ask for, at the moment.

No, no problems at all, I will post my config tommorow, because I'm not on my laptop right now.

If not tried the 8.41, and I probably will not until X700 is among the supported cards.

I think this is irrelevant. Most of what I read here are not complaining about performance, they are mostly about bugs and installation problems. However, from my experience, such issues are typical for ATI drivers.

I've been following this driver closely for the past week, as I've got an X1950XTX in a desktop and an X700 Mobility in a laptop, and it'd be nice to have them actually work properly on linux.
I installed the 8.41 driver earlier on the laptop (X700 Mobility), and after a little tinkering to get ubuntu to actually load it, I'm a little disappointed. Although I do fully understand that its the first release of a new generation of drivers (and even carries a label saying "R600 only", and "Not for Mobility"), so I wasn't expecting miracles.
XGL will no longer load for some reason... glxgears and fgl_glxgears work well. WoW through WINE won't load (it loaded but was unplayable with 8.40).
Not going to install it on my X1950 just yet. And going to revert to 8.40 for the X700.
High hopes for 8.42 and 8.43. To the posters going "OMG WHY DOESNT IT WORK FFFS" I'd just say AMD seem to be really trying with this, and development takes time.
Tbh if they can get suspend/resume working along with AIGLX, I'll consider it perfect.

well watch the following print screens:
so you guys that can`t google for 15 seconds, please shut up. opengl output, x11 and xv output, all 3 work without any problems.
So does powerplay.
HINT: GOOGLE FOR
