    Lol too late, I nearly bought a pair of HD 5850 yesterday, but judging that I won't even get '''2D''' accelerated desktop in Linux, I gave up the chance and went to SLI GTX 460 instead. Couldn't be happier

      and i do not have the money for 1 single 5570 ;-)

      "Couldn't be happier"

      be sure 'happy' and cloused source hardware (for an opensource os) isn't a good friend ;-)

        "Happy" is when it WORKS, not when it's open source.

              Yes, sure. I am not happy with the open drivers. They still suck. I'm not happy.

                "About time."

                Ok, nice. But who told you that? Some kind of
                "inner voice"? Your uncle who works at amd?
                "Some guy in irc"?

                Last questions to my new favorite forum oracle:
                Will i be able to run glxgears in 6 month on
                my (atm) 4 month old HD5850 with the FOSS driver?
                (Right now, i'm not even having flicker-free xv
                acceleration and i'm still stuck with shadowfb.
                And really, this sucks hard.)

                PS: I didn't want to talk about fglrx. This
                even sucks more. No other "driver" was able to freeze
                my pc faster than this piece of binary code.

                  Boris64 talked about what he experienced and he actually HAS an HD5850 card.

                  Qaridarium: you happy about what? Do you have an HD5000 card at all?

                    if you really read all of the phoronix posts for example 'Bridgman's' posts so you can get an 'open source intelligence'

                    6 month's you are not strong in reading right ;-)

                    i think the release is in less than 30days

                    yes this sucks but it was your choice to not get a hd4xxx i have a hd4xxx and the opensource driver works...

                    i think this part of forum is crap free ;-) no 'fglrx' in my writing.

                      no i do not have a hd5000 card.. but yes i try to fix this problem after the opensource 3D mesa driver is released ;-)

                      Boris64 also talks about his skill to get the wrong non hd4000 hardware for the opensource driver ;-)

                      he cry about 4-6 month back in 2007 i buy a card (3850) for the opensource driver and i wait over 2 years!

                      so 5 month for the opensource driver is very fast

                        I actually had a HD4870, which worked ok (after
                        waiting 4+ month of waiting for at leaset 2d accel plus
                        "i can't even remember how many month i had to wait" for basic 3d stuff (compiz!)).
                        Btw, after 2 years (of waiting ) it just went up in smoke.

                        2 years? Geez, no comment.

                        Well, I did, too, buy this card because of all
                        that fancy FOSS stuff (and because all "good" 40xx cards
                        were sold out in my hometown) but on my 50xx i still
                        can't even watch tv without tearing (buzzword vsync).
                        Call it 'crying', whatever, it's still the truth.
                        This is crap, right now at this very moment.

                          your attitude is admirable, however waiting 2 years for the driver to come out is somewhat wasteful for me.

                          Why don't you get what's usable back then, and buy a second hand HD 3850 for ~$30 now and get the same accelerated OSS desktop, while not having a miserable 2 years past memory?

                            Surely, every person should decide this for themselves?

                              right from your point of view this is crap... but yes for people like you i do the forum post about the r800 3d mesa driver release here ;-)

                              so please stop crying ;-) the r800 3d driver will save your soul ;-)
