    no, I am just deducing from your former claims. Every couple of weeks(/month you claim something is coming up - which then is mysteriously missing from the released driver.

      Yes mysteriously missing but this isn't so good for the driver ;-)

      We really mysteriously missing the direct2D (EXA like) 2d acceleration as the only standard in catalyst 10-5 very mysteriously means an other round slow 2D desktop.

      We are also missing mysteriously the KMS functionality in the catalyst driver but i think this will never ever come....

      mysteriously thinks going one here Xv is still broken...

      I need mysteriously more LSD to get a OpenGL4-Radeon-Galium4D driver

        He's right Q. You have a history of making claims about upcoming catalyst releases that turned out not to be true. It's a bit like phoronix with steam .

          Don't you think that AMD fglrx developers could routinely test new things in their unreleased driver, and release it only once they are deemed as stable?

          That's just the first idea that touched my mind, and I find it quite understandable. Don't you think so?

          Wow, hold all that energy for better deeds, energyman.
          That's a rude way to express your thought.

            Sure. But Q isn't saying AMD is working on this or that. He's saying you'll get all that awesomeness with Catalyst release x. He's been saying that for quite some time now. Apparently it's now the 10.6 release that will be totally awesome.

            Energyman's words may not be very diplomatic, but I think it's a fairly accurate assessment. Q probably does have someone feeding him NDA stuff and then he mixes that with some stuff he just makes up.

            Also I think people should respect their NDA.

                the question is: why not?

                the Point is the most users are backwarded in mind they think company build good stuff in the future if they build good stuff in the past.

                example they think nvidia gtx480 is nice because geforce256 was nice in the past. but is NOT! CUDA/PhysX is crap the hardware is a complete 'fail'
                that's because on very high resolutions the texture rendering power is to 'low' so you can't get more "FPS" and the efficiency is 100watt+ for only max 5% more fps..

                just a example

                In my world nvidia is bankrupted (in the future)

                my Point of view is fully Future oriented

                why i should care about the past ? catalyst 10-5 is the 'last' old styled driver.

                very accurate diplomatic assessment but what is about the stuff?

                isn't the stuff not the stuff i talked about ?

                stuff like uuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the 10-6 rock da house...

                  the reason is:

                  you are toxic. You create expectations and when your predicted greatness fails to turn up the people are disappointed. At that point they don't blame you - no, they blame AMD.

                  You are toxic for AMD. You are creating a bad mood. You are acting stupid.

                  Do I need to continue?

                  Oh, and 'NDA's': yeah, we should not follow them. we also should break all contracts. Laws? Are for sissys. Lets go and beat up Q. ....

                    o yes very toxic they buy nvidia if i don't stop this LOL...

                    nvidia should pay me for being a nvidia hater.
                    if nvidia hire up more Q. nvidia haters they really 'win' because of the users blame AMD LOL.

                    Yes we all should break laws to be 'cool' because laws are for losers with no balls!


                    "You are acting stupid"
                    next time i buy a xbox,windows7,gtx480,PS3,ipad,iphone,intel cpu,plasma-TV and a SCO finance Share paper to make sure i'm really acting stupid.

                      All this discussion aside, cat 10.5's should be out next week, so we can all see what's there then.
                      What Q says isn't always right, but it isn't always wrong either. I personally don't find what he says any worse than some things that come out of phoronix.
                      For what it's worth though, I don't think 10.5 or 10.6 will be as grand as he's suggesting. We'll just see what we see.

                        I find it completely believable that what Q posts is the NDA'd beta driver changelog, and features that don't pass QA just aren't in the official ones.
