    What do you mean by "acceleration" ? 2D, 3D or both ?

    So far I would be happy just with 2D, better than nothing ;-)

    I searched myself a little bit on phoronix, it seems like there is a RadeonHD Port for Solaris:

    But RadeonHD itself has some issues with the 4670:

    Well I'll wait and see what kind of RadeonHD will be included in the 2008.11 OpenSolaris release ...

    thx for the answer

      There is only one graphics engine in the HD2xxx, 3xxx and 4xxx parts -- a unified shader 3D block -- so 2D, video and 3D acceleration all more or less come together. That is why you aren't seeing 2D, then video, then 3D spread out over time like we did with previous chip generations.

        Ah interesting, thx for explanation
        I guess I'll go with the 4670 and wait for the RadeonHD Team to fix the current problems. To me it seems not to be overcomplicated. According to the article posted above it works, just the DVI Output does not function.

        cheers
