    I don't suppose you're going to quad-GPU with that thing?
  2. Sooo... who wants to write new FOSS Radeon...

    Sooo... who wants to write new FOSS Radeon firmware?
  3. That's not just MSI's problem. I went to...

    That's not just MSI's problem.

    I went to update the BIOS on my Asus motherboard. I got the BIOS from the website, installed the flashing utility from the motherboard's installer disk, and went to...

    The whole point of an antistat bag is to allow the discharge of static at a safe (discharging static in <1ms isn't good for electronics) rate. That makes it the best place to leave your motherboard....

    Maybe cause he just got one now?

    What happens if you change cpufreq's up_threshold to something lower than 95%?

    Try:
    # echo 50 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold
    (Sets cpufreq to scale higher when load hits...

    Don't do your driver development kind of things...

    Don't do your driver development kind of things on a machine with irreplaceable data. The hardware is expendable-ish. Your data, priceless.

    My PowerPC 603e-based Mac quit playing nice with Linux a looooong time ago. I tried to put Debian 4 on it to get files off of it (no USB support at all!), after it had been out of service for a...
  9. "Release the docs and there will be drivers"...

    "Release the docs and there will be drivers" worked much better when the hardware was much simpler. Nowadays, it helps a lot to have a driver team that knows not only how to read specs, but how to...

    My motherboard has a feature called "Processor Downcore." I can set the CPU to only use 3/2/1 cores (or 6-the board was meant for Phenom I, not Thuban). Maybe there's a similar one on an Intel...

    40-60Hz?

    I think G-sync was meant to go with 120-144Hz monitors, which help with mouse lag.

    It would be really nice if someone implemented Shadowplay with this.

    I've noticed someone has gone in with Valgrind and started looking for and fixing memory sloppiness.
  14. I know someone who still likes to use iBook G4s,...

    I know someone who still likes to use iBook G4s, which also use this chipset.

    Nitpick: I don't think there was ever a 64MB version of Rage 128. I think it was more like 8/16MB (the iBook has 8).
  15. I have an HD 4670. It still works like it did...

    I have an HD 4670. It still works like it did when I first got it. Open-source drivers are pretty good for that card from what I'm reading here, but I'm running Debian Wheezy, and don't want to go...

    Heh, Loki and some others made their jobs easier. Kind of. Updating 10-year-old code is fun :D
  17. Legacy driver....

    Legacy driver.

    It probably won't work nicely with newer X.Org. It works well enough with Debian Wheezy.
  18. If it shows 29/30 and 59/60, it sounds like vsync...

    If it shows 29/30 and 59/60, it sounds like vsync is on with the occasional stutter. Vsync means your card will run at a fraction of your monitor's refresh rate (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5). Most LCD are...

    With Debian's aging open-source drivers, it's not very good for games, but at least xscreensaver behaves itself. Unvanquished won't run, and a lot of Wine programs will refuse to work.
    I haven't...

    Performance-wise, well enough.

    My biggest problem has been with xscreensaver+Catalyst. The small gripe is it won't show the password box to unlock your screen. The big one is it occasionally...
