    There's a few things missing from the R200 support- such as HyperZ, which would add more speed to the driver support we have. We don't have any good way to RE that piece and they don't seem to have given us that tidbit of info at the time we got the rest for some reason...

      Hyper Z is supported on r100 and r200, however, IIRC, you have to enable it via a dri option.

        Really? Cool. When did that actually get added in? (Seems I missed out on that detail- won't be making those remarks again... )

        All this means is that I get to turn on a few more things in my R200 laptop. Heh...

          Several years ago. I don't remember exactly when.

            Heh... It figures... Last couple of years have been a bit of a foggy blur in some aspects.

            Thanks for the tidbit.

              UVD

              UVD is not going to be open source, amd have said, they will supply the driver, but atm if i remember right, there is no uvd support at all at the time being.
