Okey so the following has been completely implemented (if the card has hardware support for this) across all ATI cards:
DDX (X server modesetting)
Old 2D acceleration (XAA)
2D acceleration (EXA)
Thank you to everybody here who made that possible!
Now this is what worries me: why is there not going to be support for KMS on the HDRadeon4870?
TV-out on avivo chips (r5xx-r7xx) should can be considered pretty close to done at this point (add Option "ATOMTvOut" "TRUE" to the device section of your xorg config to enable). Scaling of just about any mode works. Only tv-out on the pre-avivo chips (r1xx-r4xx) is limited to 800x600.
Better power management is next on our list once r6xx/r7xx 3D support stabilizes a bit more.
Awesome! Thanks for the quick response, not to mention all the work you and your colleagues have been getting done.
There has been discussion about adding support for Crossfire-like operation to the open drivers but it's a large task and I don't expect it to happen in the near future. Crossfire is not something you can just enable in the hardware.
