    Oh no, two different claims again.

    One group asserts, 'best driver ever!" The other: "same old, same old."

    And you wonder why new and potential ATI owners are totally confused.

      no one call an catalyst 10.11 best driver ever... the radeon driver beat the catalyst 10.11 in desktop useage.

      the catalyst 11.1 is a good one for desktop usesage.

      there is no confusing.

      back in 2010 you need the catalyst for 3d and the radeon for 2D...

      in 2011 amd fix that for the catalyst.


      maybe the radeon is still more stable but be sure the catalyst beat the radeon on 2011 on featuresed 2D and 3D.

        Catalyst does not support hybrid cards (PowerX) yet. And as far as i understood from the thread "Catalyst with Intel IGP" there are still no plans for this

            Nobody in ATI. That's why i am pessimistic about
            but be sure the catalyst beat the radeon on 2011 on featuresed 2D and 3D.

              Yes, it's true. You're also out of luck if you use proprietary nVidia driver + Intel IGP too (Netbooks with ION2 platforms, for instance). I still believe this is more a kernel / Xorg design problem than a driver one, but that's an answer that only Xorg/Kernel/ATI/nVidia devs can tell us.

              who cares?
              A lot of people care about it. Currently, there are lots of computer systems (mainly laptops) which use a hybrid graphics solution (discrete + IGP). And Linux only works ATM (with some problems) with OS drivers. Because OS drivers have a very slow 3D performance, most people who have hybrid graphics solution and want to use 3D features have no other solution than install / dual booting with Windows.

              Cheers
