    Default AMD Puts Out A New Catalyst Linux Graphics Driver

    Phoronix: AMD Puts Out A New Catalyst Linux Graphics Driver

    While we haven't yet been able to find out whether the Radeon R9 290 series Linux performance has improved, AMD released a new Catalyst Linux graphics driver on Friday...

    This driver now officially supports Linux 3.12 and should work with non-Ubuntu distributions aswell. I also expect R9 290 improvements, but that is something for Michael to try.

    The previous Catalyst have this funny error.

    "
    Package Maintainer(s): Alberto Milone <alberto.milone@canonical.com>
    Status: *UNVERIFIED*
    Ubuntu Packages:
    Ubuntu/gutsy
    Ubuntu/hardy
    Ubuntu/intrepid
    Ubuntu/jaunty
    Ubuntu/karmic
    Ubuntu/lucid
    Ubuntu/maverick
    Ubuntu/natty
    Ubuntu/oneiric
    Ubuntu/precise
    Ubuntu/quantal
    Ubuntu/raring
    Ubuntu/source
    "

    to compile we need to use "Ubuntu/source"instead "Ubuntu/saucy"..

    It's correct now?

    Intel hd3000 + amd6850m = this is a Muxless PX A+I platform, we doesn't supported it "YET"
    They need to change to.

    "this is a Muxless PX A+I platform, WE WILL NEVER SUPPORT IT"

    It does, but just for flying stealth craft. Works so well that you can't even tell the plane is there.

    It's called open source radeon drivers. You should try it some time; works a lot better.

    Yeah, since new DPM patches, open source drivers are in good shape for RadeonHD 234K cards. Very good power management, OGL 3.1 support (with up coming 3.3) and UVD support (UVD 2.0 cards are still not supported). That's pretty smooth for daily use and casual gaming.
