    Default AMD Catalyst 14.12 Linux Driver Released -- Huge Update!

    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 14.12 Linux Driver Released -- Huge Update!

    As said last week that a huge new Catalyst Linux driver release would be coming on Tuesday and sure enough it has arrived. Catalyst 14.12 is the biggest AMD proprietary Linux graphics driver update in quite some time...

    Still no OpenGL 4.5?
    I don't see a change in AMD's driver policy. This huge update just tries to match nVidia's feature level, does it?

    Omega is really only useful for GCN hardware.

    This says that Linux 3.18 and X.Org 1.17 are not supported. So again lacking behind NVIDIA.

    @pandev92:

    I had this bug a few months ago and got it fixed. Can't remember how, but I think it was something Vsync/vblank/Tear-Free related.

    Xserver 1.17 is not released yet and Linux 3.18 might or might not work, they just haven't tested it yet.

    It shouldn't be that way. There is a new driver in the making for GCN. Fglrx should be optimized for pre-GCN (5k and 6k series) cards.
