    agd5f / oibaf:

    So you're saying that if he did buy a suitable Radeon, 3D accel wouldn't work - or at least not until the big endian patches get applied to Gallium?

    I'm sure he could live without hardware video decoding so long as those cards deliver good general purpose 2D accel. Would they likely offer better 2D performance than a GeForce 6600 using the nv driver?

    The patches are here: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...ead.html#63723

    Confirmed still not merged.

    Thanks for the update oibaf!

    Is there any reason they've not been merged yet other than no one has found the time yet?
