  • Expected 8.4 features

    What are the expected features of fglrx 8.4? Do you think the delay it's been taking could it means major bugfixes?

    i think the hype is low these days, i expect none from this release.

    i'll be lucky if fglrx gain more frames in my old x200 and less diaginal tearing.

      The bug is the wrong name. Just rename 8-3 to 8-4

          Well im still optimistic, hoping for crossfire(why not), and/or at least one of the gpu's of my 3870x2 to be detected.

            Amd is very versatile, I have no doubt that they will surpass Nvidia drivers. How soon that will be, only time will tell. Just expect better things from AMD Guys.

                  Well, I would be very happy with a driver that actually works for a change.

                  The last working driver for my X1950 AGP was 8.42 (I think).

                    I would be glad if the Java OpenGL pipeline worked again. It had worked since 8.24.10 and stopped working with the 8.42.3 release. And my Radeon X1800's fan is running at full speed all the time. Unfortunatley, neither aticonfig nor atipower could help...

                        I have a mobility radeon X1600 on a HP nc8430...
                        I wish for proper dual-monitor support (with different resolutions, widescreen with non-widescreen), stop for the terrible tearing when playing videos and for better power saving features (for less heat on the lap) so that I actually could hold the laptop on my lap

                          Amen. But this will never happen. You see, they believe theirself that their modesetting is working perfectly and that there is no video tearing. Those are things they can't fix, for like, almost two years now, judging by my experience. I mean, two years is ... a half Olympic cycle, if you will... Two years and maybe a full Olympic cycle for some others .

                          Maybe after some four more fun years... counting from their "new" driver, who knows

                          That's why I'm sticking to radeonhd... they seem to be tackling their goals more efficiently.

                            Hmm...I don't have the video tearing problem, and I thought it was resolved with the Catalyst 8.3 driver.

                            Perhaps compiz is causing the issue? TexturedVideo and compiz don't seem to play nice in any case.

                            I actually really don't have much to ask for at this time. Maybe automatic control of power saving states? It's gotten quiet as the number of people with problems have gone down, or moved to the radeon/radeonhd solutions.

                              Tearing when using textured video was significantly reduced in 8.3. It should have gone from "blatantly obvious" to "you have to look hard".

                              Jukka-pekka, are you using textured video ? If you are running 8.3 and using tex vid and didn't see a big improvement with 8.3 please speak up in another thread. If you are running under a compositing manager, can you pls check that the tearing is largely gone when compositing is switched off ?
