another +1 for power management.
profile low is giving me levels that are rather close to fglrx but dynpm is still somewhat problematic (but then it involves memory reclocking and that makes things more complicated). Still, dynpm is what fglrx does and what is most useful normally.
This Zero Core or whatever it was called on the new HD 7xxx series is what I am looking for. Sounds awesome and finally coming true what I want for ... 8 or 10 years now?
+1 also for UVD. I mean, I can play videos, yeah, but having an ASIC that could do things better and more efficient sitting useless around... hmm. Stupid legal minefield.
OpenCL ... oh, well. If it happens I won't protest. I mean, especially if it gives me the opportunity to use the same RAM/or mixed shared RAM (VRAM/system RAM) for CPU and GPU (or APU). And then have Gentoo compiling libreoffice on both computing units. Heh. Ah, weren't there people in the good days of old who were using the floppy controllers of their Amiga boxes as a computing aid for the main CPU?
HDMI: Don't have it and the first thing I associate with HDMI is HDCP (even though it is possible to use on other interfaces), and I am allergic to techniques like these. Well, if it helps anybody to get some tones out of his box...
Furthermore there are a lot of rendering glitches. (all cards/chips I used til now, but that might be also KDE's fault)
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
