          Yep, shame on AMD for open-sourcing gpu documentation, and making it possible to port drivers to other platforms such as BSD. In 2 years time the AMD haters will be nowhere to be seen.

            But nothing compared to AMD's open source drivers; I'm gonna miss old days arguing with bridgman and agd5f very bad

              How nice of them to allow you to go through the work to port their driver to BSD. Whereas nvidia only has official BSD support out of the box.

                The only shame AMD should have right now is not reviewing/releasing the UVD1 code. The fglrx/Catalyst blob is for gamerz with the latest cards. AMD doesn't need to support older products with it if they do things right on the open source side.

                  It is ironic that you mark me as AMD hater when I have ALWAYS used AMD and ATI products all my life.

                  I have a Radeon 4850 which is more than enough for my casual gaming needs. The open source drivers do not help in gaming.

                    And I use nvidia in my systems. Notice that I wrote 'in two years' by that time hopefully the drivers will be in better shape and cover 80% of use cases.

                      good point. The problem consists in KMS and when will that be a reality for nvidia drivers.

                        100% true.. As an Radeon 2600 owner in one of my systems (HTPC) If I had a same generation nvidia card I would be able to play many of my Steam games.

                        And the worst is not the performance but the artifacts and the graphics corruption..
