Intel 2006-08-09 Graphics Preview

Making news this afternoon is the release of Intel's next-generation graphics driver. This Linux display driver is open-source and supports all of the integrated graphics adapters from the i810 to the new i965 Express. We have up our thoughts on these new drivers today at Phoronix.

ATI 8.27.10 Display Drivers

After ATI's successful launch last month of the fglrx 8.26.18 drivers, which had delivered an external events daemon (atieventsd) and more, it is now time for us to discuss the changes in the newly released 8.27.10 Linux display drivers. Of the changes in this release include X11R7.1 support, Fedora Core packaging scripts, and Radeon X1000 TV-out support. As always, we have all of the details to share in our ATI fglrx 8.27.10 driver examination.

ATI 8.26.18 Display Drivers

After two delays this month ATI Technologies today released their CATALYST 6.6 and fglrx v8.26.18 drivers. Contained in the ATI Linux drivers are a fair amount of changes beyond what was found in last month's (also belated) 8.25.18 driver release. We have detailed these changes and looked after the display driver performance.

NVIDIA 1.0-8XXX Driver Round-Up

With the NVIDIA 1.0-8762 driver pushed out to the Linux/Solaris/FreeBSD community last week, this has marked the end of the 1.0-8XXX series, with Rel90 approaching later this year. How have the NVIDIA 1.0-8XXX Linux display drivers matured through this series? Today we are having a look as we check back with the 1.0-8174, 1.0-8178, 1.0-8756, and the most recent 1.0-8762 candidate.

ATI 8.25.18 Display Drivers

It was only last month that ATI had unveiled its Radeon X1000 series support under Linux. On that April 12 launch, Phoronix was there with coverage, and a handful of articles that had looked at its performance and various features. As was hinted at in those articles where the TV-out support had seized to exist, we mentioned that ATI would be bringing this support back in an upcoming release, as well as other features. Well, today is the day. ATI's fglrx 8.25.18 display drivers bring yet another handful of new Linux features to the table, and we at Phoronix have you covered.

NVIDIA 1.0-8762 Display Drivers

After being quiet for nearly two months, NVIDIA has come out this afternoon and released the NVIDIA 1.0-8762 Linux display drivers. Contained in this release are a few fixes, new product support, and more. Here at Phoronix we have taken a quick look at some of the changes.

ATI: Open v. Closed Drivers

Since Stephen Shankland's article at CNET entitled New Linux look fuels old debate, we have been overwhelmed with requests to take a serious look at the frame-rate performance differences between the various open-source and proprietary contenders. Our first article on this topic, which will likely be the first of a series of examinations, is looking at the differences between the X.Org open-source ATI Radeon driver and that of ATI's official but proprietary fglrx display driver. Will open-source breathe new life into old GPU products?

ATI PowerPlay Reanalyzed

Last year we had taken an in-depth look at ATI's PowerPlay technology upon the support within the Linux fglrx display drivers. Now that Fedora Core 5 has been out for some time, and there have been quite a few monthly releases since that point, we are now back today as we re-examine ATI's PowerPlay using once again the Mobility RADEON X300. In this examination, we will also be using additional benchmarks beyond what was done in our original benchmarking fiesta, and we will be examining its power consumption when using the AC adapter and simply not the battery. Continue as we examine this technology once more, and get a better understanding if this implementation is for all mobile users.

ATI Radeon X1800XL + FSAA

Now that we have covered the ATI Radeon X1000 series in-depth under Linux, we are back today with yet another look at the X1800XL but this time it comes in form of looking at Full Scene Anti-Aliasing. While premiering with the ATI Radeon X1000 series was new adaptive anti-aliasing and transparency super-sampling, these abilities have yet to be touched by the Linux 8.24.8 display drivers.

ATI 8.24.8 Display Drivers

Of ATI's likely 12 or 13 driver releases this year, the release coming out today should prove to be a very memorable moment for the red. Ahh... the sight of Radeon X1000 cards being powered by Linux; yes, the day has finally come! Among many other articles coming out today at Phoronix to commemorate this v8.24.8 ATI release is our driver examination.
