      Not really true. All the problems with video are gone on my HD3450 R6xx. BUT this is the most buggy version of this driver I have ever used. Texture corruption on several games. Especially with Wine. I was about to send a bug to Wine, but I tried rolling back Wine versions to find out that the problem wasn't really with the Wine update. I find corruption on Flatout2 and Trackmania Nations under Wine and one native app, but I don't remember which one right now. Lots of games installed here. xP

      Edit: Almost forgot, Ubuntu 9.04 x86_64, Linux 2.6.28-15, X 1.6.0. Supposed to be supported, I think.

          Hi all,

          I hope it finally gives a boost to video-playback too!

          I finally sold my 4870. If the 5870 does not have propa vid supports, like the nVida series, I will purchase a GTX-275.

          ATI hardware is grand indeed, but the spend on drivers isn't; not that this has not been covered before.... ;-)

            You know Europe is a continent not a country, right? The VAT in EU countries varies wildly from 16% to 36%...

              What is "propa vid supports" exactly? I can see 1080p x264/DTS MKVs on a 2.5GHz Athlon X2 with 4GB ram and an integrated Radeon 3200 (latest fglrx blob) on Debian AMD64 kernel .26 / VLC 1.0.1 ... Oh, an I also tried it on SuSe 11 AMD64, same VLC, same hardware and it works...

                full opensource and spec support for the UVD3 unit will come on the R900 series VGAs!

                5870 is R800 ....

                in my point of view.. don't buy nvidia hardware!

                • Don't buy it if you like problems

                  • Interestingly enough, in the thread on asking nvidia devs questions, half of it is "why are your drivers so shit?".
                    People just love to whinge.

                          I hate to say this Quaridarium, but have you ever thought of using an English dicitonary? It's perfect, NOT "perfekt", extensions, NOT "extansions", etc. and no freaking idea what you mean by "effektet". i.e. you're making the World of Gothic English forums look good...

                          I'm still awaiting a decent catalyst since 9.2 here... and I've found that Windows support while MUCH better isn;t all that hot either...

                              I work on my English skill and yes i now use an English dictionary.

                              perfect yes i know it.. but my German brainwashed head is kkkkkk alll the time because German "Perfekt" is the german word for the English perfect. realy sorry !

                              "effektet" you can see the effect of the bug in wine.

                              wine 1.1.29 fix some oblivion sound problem but if you use windows dll's there was no problem before. Catalyst 9.9 should fix the rest of the bugs. after that only the speed is the problem openGL3.2 fix this.

                              • BTW I noticed that Vsync now works buy enabling it ingame and not force it on in CCC like you had to do before! Perhaps it was fixed in an earlier release but this is new for me at least!
