    Does this patch set support ZCP (~3W power down mode)? If not, is this on the roadmap?

    Default Hooray!

    It was looking like it would slip until the next kernel for sure. Good to see they got it out in time for this one.

    Now the question is whether it actually works.

    Because of this, I just ordered a 7850 card.

    It's a whole new architecture. The chips of the next 3-4 years will be based on this, so open source support will probably come sooner with the next generations.

    Excellent news!

    You are making my mistake, blowing money in the direction of careless pit.


    A review of opensource driver running southern island gpu would be nice, basically the interesting points would be power consumptions(use AC socket measurement device) at full load, desktop work, idle; performance in quake engines/unigine/wine and quirks (using multimonitor, rendering errors, hangs etc). An open source from AMD is always with huge grain of salt.

    I'm hoping to hit at this level too.
