    Phoronix: WINE 1.1.22 Brings Few Graphics Improvements

    The developers behind WINE are out with their bi-weekly development update to this popular open-source project. Added in this latest WINE 1.1.22 release are improvements to OLE copy/paste functionality, the start of x86_64 exception handling support, Direct3D locking fixes, ARB shaders improvements, and better OpenGL pixel format support...

    It would be awesome if applications actually install without hacking WINE to hell and back.

        Wine 1.1.22 detects the Radeon 4800 series out of the box now (does not count for 4300, 4500, 4600 series and probably more).

          But does it work as well as an Nvidia card is the question.

            It does, but for me it does look funny, and it's also really sluggish.

                As I understand it, it's not a case of Wine supporting ATI so much as it's a case of ATI supporting their drivers as well as NVidia supports theirs.

                People like to say that because PPRacer works great with their ATI card Wine should run Crysis just fine too.
