    Default AMD Releases Revised R500 Document

    Phoronix: AMD Releases Revised R500 Document

    In late February AMD had released the much anticipated R500 3D programming guide followed my two minor revisions to it over the past month. Today AMD has released another revision to the R300 3D programming guide, which now includes expanded coverage of the Command Processor (CP) found on the R500 graphics processors...

    another revision to the R300 3D programming guide
    Little typo, it seems. Shouldn't it be R500?

    I think so. We may have to update the R300 register spec as well, unless the CP registers are identical to the ones on R5xx (we will check), but so far we have only updated the R5xx document.

    continue like this AMD. You can't imagine how important it is for the community what you are doing. I was about to buy an nvidia, but with this change I will just go for your video cards. I will buy an ati 3870 in a few months, I hope for that time the drivers hd and atixf86 will be able to let me have 3d without touching anything. that day, will be a memorable day!

    Still waiting for a full featured OSS driver. Even R300/R400 does not render everthing which could do fglrx 8.39.4/8.40.4. The newer fglrx drivers have got render problems too...

    I know what you mean. I'm waiting patiently now- they've released what looks like the full monty here. We just need to get a first cut done with the old stuff and then get Gallium3D stuff done next. I'm eagerly waiting to see what comes of those drivers instead of the old way of doing things.
