    Finally!

    Even though it's too late for me. I already switched to nvidia. But changes like this just might make me switch back when i upgrade again

    It works. Tested on my lappy. Cool and quiet. Needs new firmware, that was missing in the email.

    This is simply brilliant news, I offer my sincere thanks and congratulations to everybody involved in making this happen.

    I was delighted that we got UVD support, and then to follow it up so soon with power management was more than I dared hope for :-)

    My Question is. If i watch an Movie with UVD, he is Using the UVD Clocks (e.g. 400 Mhz). up to this point all is fine. If i now start an 3D app that need the full power (e.g. 850Mhz) what do now the new code? The Catalyst is so stupid and clock down to 400Mhz unless an 3D App is running.

    Please don't do the same Fault! Its Annoying to Flash the Bios and chance the UVD Entrys to the Max Settings.

    As far as I know the closed source driver is still faster than open source. It could be that it also has compatability for higher OpenGL Versions.

    Both of these are true. However, the performance difference isn't as large as you might expect, I think it's generally around 60-70%. OpenGL 4.2 is supported in Catalyst, open source drivers have 3.1 (but with 3.2 and 3.3 being close - possibly in the next version of Mesa).

    I'm *really* looking forward to some new benchmarks with this new code!
