    Gsmarena, Androidworld, go look for yourself...

      It's not a secret that ATi is on the forefront of open source drivers. Now the closed source drivers are catching up to nVidia's closed source driver.

      With HTC Linux Android phones using AMD GPU's and the ATi Linux desktop having the best FLOSS drivers and a pretty good proprietary driver, AMD GPUs could become the one stop shop for Linux graphics. Who would have thought, few years ago, that this would possibly happen?

      "AMD all the way" still holds this very day. Best price/performance, greenest full fledged GPU's, fasted GPUs and most widely supported GPUs! :O

      AMDs' at it, big time!
      I like AMD too, but let's not get carried away. Where's my video decode acceleration at?

It took me a trivial amount of time to set up on the open drivers, even back when the drivers were still extremely new. Just last week I had working dual screen on Fedora right out of the box, but that all ended when I installed fglrx.

        Once you go dual screen, it's impossible to go back.
        I agree that dual monitors are awesome. What I don't agree with is the issue with setting them up using the ATI propertiy driver. I have been using the early release drive in Arch for awhile. I even have dual monitors setup with KDE SC desktop effects. All I did was use the ATI utilities to configure it.

          This was a rhetorical question. I know it's coming in the form of a gallium3d state tracker using shaders.

          BTW, a word has not yet been invented to describe how much I detest the one-minute edit rule.

            Interesting that wikipedia's article on HTC phones wouldn't mention anything about that. Plenty of Qualcomm's and TI's SOCs in there though...

              The Catalyst GUI didn't do anything at all for me. I ran it as root as well. So I had to resort to fiddling with xorg.conf which at best got me a corrupted display that wasn't the correct size. And no, adding a Virtual line to xorg.conf didn't help; it actually made my maximum resolution smaller than it was without it.

                Or it was AMD's IP it was based on. Go check out the CPU's on Wikipedia. SorrybI can't link myself; I'm still on Opera mini on broken phone here :}

                  I tried the leaked driver and it's still locking up with Steam based games through WINE. I was able to play TF2 with terrible FPS (10-12) and after 5 minutes the driver locked the system up again.

                        It didn't fix vsync with my HD5770.

                          Rhetorical or not, the video acceleration of catalyst isn't that good too.

                          Here, try the 1080p mp4 Trailer

                          and enjoy the block artifacts. It may be that it can't decode x264 high @ Level 5 properly, but I'm not sure it happens for other techniques too...



                          @Topic: I'm not excited about this driver either.
                          In fact I changed to the open source driver, after the video acceleration of catalyst left me with a defunct X.

                          It's funny that xf86-video-ati-git and mesa-git is way more stable than the official driver.

                            I downloaded OGG version highest possible, no problem with playback. x264 just suck

                              Same here with the 2K x264 version. No Problems.

                                Yea sure, when someone comes to you to watch a film you'll just reencode it before watching, because x264 sucks.
