Michael pls, stop it :D I can hear you laughing all the way to Germany.
Not sure if the guy is actually serious, I hope he isn't.
That's not the Catalyst 14.8, it's the embedded version of the 14.6.
AMD Catalyst 14.8 Beta is still scheduled for this week I hear... shouldn't be long now, even if delayed until early next week.
2D performance is generally a bit lower than with the opensource driver. Regarding 3D/games, you should profit from a newer driver.
Download the driver here:
Can confirm. HD 6870 worked great with opensource drivers before I sold it to Qaridarium.
The 750 Ti is pretty popular I think, and it's a Maxwell card. Also, H.265 is still nowhere to be found and the high-end Maxwell cards launch very soon.
My R7 260X works perfect with both Catalyst and open source stack (oibaf PPA, Linux 3.15).
Yes. A big portion of YouTube is already using VP9 if you use Chrome.
Massive respect to Michael for not ending the article with a giant "LOL".
Yeah, no need to comment on this one.
The OpenGL performance with this driver is fantastic. Team Fortress 2 works at least as good as using Windows now with AntiAliasing. Even Vsync and Steam Overlay is working fast now, although I play...
Mesa 10.1.3 is in trusty-proposed for some time and will get to trusty-updates next week or so.
R7 260X reclocking issues... isn't that what the new microcode in the linux-firmware is supposed to fix, along with some others? It's neither in oibaf's PPA nor pushed to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as an...
Graham Sellers, AMD's OpenGL and also Linux guy, who invited Michael to talk about the Catalyst driver recently, had the following to say:
He also replied to some other questions from users,...
I have used Unity for a Oculus Rift game for an university team project and thought it was nice to work with, but I have no experience with Unreal.
Let me guess. You're using Firefox with Adobe Flash 11.2? Nothing AMD can do. It uses software rendering all the time.
Chrome with its integrated Pepper Flash works perfectly fine.
Now avaible from AMD:
They are not even released yet.
Catalyst always sucked at 2D in the past but it has been pretty good since 2013. It's to the point where I don't really notice the driver and any possible slowdowns are coming from the...
