For this testing the fglrx 8.91.4 / OpenGL 4.1.11250 Catalyst Linux "press" driver was used for testing the V4900 and other FirePro graphics cards used for this review. The publicly available FirePro Linux and Windows drivers should support the V4900. Like all of the FirePro hardware, the workstation hardware is well supported by the Catalyst Linux driver with all available features. As previous articles have shown, AMD has improved the FirePro/FireGL OpenGL Linux performance several times through the life cycles of previous products.
