  • Coming Soon: Catalyst Control Center - Linux Edition

    Hi,

    I am new to your forums. Well, I have to bring you an exciting news: Catalyst Control Center - Linux Edition is coming soon. The Windows version of it has been redone and a Linux version of it is coming soon. Maybe in february, maybe later this year.



    I don't know whether this was a decition made by AMD, but they seem to want to improve their Linux support. I always had trouble with the fglrx driver like freezes. And this step shows that AMD maybe wants to improve the linux driver overall, because the perfomance isn't excellent as well.

    Greetings from Germany,

      LMAO...well said. Knowing ATI's response times for driver-related fixes, I think we should expect something like this *at least* a year from now.

        A Linux version of Catalyst Control Center (built using Qt) will show up in a few months too, although it doesn't share any code (currently) with the Windows version. The plan is to have functional equivalence before the end of the year.

        Maybe we'll see something before the summer? Interestingly, the article does mention that the OpenGL rewrite (Orca) is part of the 7.1 drivers for Vista

          It's unlikely that it would be completed prior to the summer... Though not confirmed, it will likely be a graphical version of the options found in aticonfig.

            What do AMD's response times look like?

                If this information is true, it should be here this year...

                  Don't hold your breath (though I also secretly wish they've cleaned up their act and sped-up their driver development)...

                    i'm really thinking about throwing out my current X1300 card from my pc and inserting back the old one x300se.

                    even though is's a much slower card, it is getting nearly fully supported via opensource driver. i'm getting really fed up with ati's fglrx recently, esp on amd64 system :]

                    and if their new control center is going to be the same kind of memory hog as on windows, i won't be having second thoughts.

                      It won't be.

                        This month' Windows Catalyst will have the new CCC which much, much reduced memory usage and it's faster.

                        @Michael: so we have 64Bit fixes in 8.34, interesting

                          CCC Linux

                          7.4 - April

                          The Linux Catalyst Control Center is set to be released in this update.

                          Nice

                          The article does mention a bunch of OpenGL optimizations too for the windows driver in the coming months, perhaps they'll be included in the linux driver too?

                            I would never trust a Windows site with information like that.... really.

                              The article doesn't mention performance improvement for the linux drivers, only that the control center will be available in April.

                              The Opengl improvement will be for Vista's Opengl which should make it on par with winxp and Vista's Crossfire support.

                              Instead of losing their time on a Linux control center, Ati should spend some time improving linux opengl performance and start supporting composite.
