    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 9.7 For Linux Released

    It's a bit late in the month, but AMD has just released the ATI Catalyst 9.7 driver update for Linux. Officially, the only new feature in Catalyst 9.7 is production support for Red Flag DT 7.0, but there are some bug-fixes too...

    See http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.p...571625#p571625. It's not a fix for the problem itself, but will keep your kernel logs from being spammed with these messages.

    Crossfire finally works on my 4870x2
    Unigine Tropics got a 10 FPS increase.

    I got some error messages in dmesg though:

    Bug: Random areas of black rectangles still appear with 9.7. No known way to reproduce but screen refresh clears corruption. Pretty sure it appears even BEFORE putting system to sleep.

    Look at a benchmark I uploaded:

    I thought nvidias 190.18 still reported OpenGL 3.2:

    Ok, then I was wrong. I took the third number into the OGL versioning scheme, like the KDE versioning scheme. Didn't know that the third number is unreleated to the OGL version.
    the point is.. the version number in the driver abaut openGL is not the feature set of REAL features of the driver!

    in 9-7 the GSGL string is wrong 1.3... in the beta its korrekt 1.4!

    gsgl1.4=OpenGL3.1

    in fakt nvidia has openGL3.2 beta... in fakt amd work on 3.2 right now!

    Now please, would you be so kind and at least take a moment to re-read what you're writing? It's okay if English is not your native language etc, but you don't even seem to try to write something which others can understand. Anyways, it can't be that hard to write "extension" correctly, especially since someone already corrected you in that regard, can it?

    So... I could hazard some guesses about what you mean, but I don't really have a clue what you're trying to tell us (didn't read the whole thread on the other hand).
    i'm realy sorry "extension" an E in spoken english is like a spoken german A

    Extension=Ausdehnung oder Erweiterung

    i realy try to learn this word

    OpenGL reference pages say the following:
    Code:
    The GL_VERSION and GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION strings begin with a version number.
    The version number uses one of these forms:
            
    major_number.minor_number
    major_number.minor_number.release_number
    In this case it says 3.1.8787.

    3: major version (OpenGL 3.x)
    1: minor version (OpenGL 3.1)
    8787: release_number: just a number AMD uses to indicate which version of the OpenGL driver this is. It increases with every release. It has nothing to do with OpenGL itself.
