    Default Coming Soon: AMD R600 3D Documentation

    Phoronix: Coming Soon: AMD R600 3D Documentation

    For months we have been telling you that AMD has been preparing to release their R600 series documentation as well as opening up the source-code to two of their internal software projects used for testing new graphics processor designs prior to the availability of the actual hardware. Advanced Micro Devices has yet to release their 3D programming documentation covering the R600 series (or the brand-new RV770) nor the source-code to their two internal projects (TCore and KGrids), but following several postings in our forums over the past couple of weeks and many emails inquiring about the status, today we have a brief update to share.

    Wow! Great news. I hope this can fix all these issues with the sad frame rates on ATI cards.

    now if only CrossfireX support came soon...

    Woohoo! Go AMD!

    I just wish I would have had an AMD option on the inspiron 1420n I just bought. Not only did I get an undocumented gpu, I got a defective one.
    ...and Dell replaced the wrong part.

    twice.

    ..I should have it back, working, in one or two days.
    ...at which point the hardware will /still/ be undocumented.

    The Dell techs, the second they see you bought it with Ubuntu instead of Vista, get all scared and just try to forward you somewhere else.

    Anyways, keep up the awesomeness, I look forward to, sometime down the line, owning another AMD gpu.

    I'd say it's very doubtful for Ubuntu 8.10. For the next Fedora release, it's possible an experimental version could appear...

    Well could be a really good reason to have a look at it.
    I was wondering, because ATM the alpha 3 of ubntu 8.10 boots but mess up all the output on my 2400 XT.

    As long as Xv and Compiz can happily live together I will use it. I don't care the Windowed GL anymore
