    Phoronix: AMD Radeon HD 4250 880G On Linux

    Back in May we looked at the AMD Radeon HD 4290 integrated graphics Linux performance of the 890GX motherboard chipset found on the MSI 890GXM-G65 and many other motherboards. This ATI Radeon 4290 (890GX) wasn't the most compelling integrated graphics processor we found with its OpenGL performance using the proprietary Catalyst driver being significantly lower than even the cheapest PCI Express graphics cards. X-Video Bitstream Acceleration, the method whereby AMD exposes their UVD2 engine capabilities on Linux, was also rather useless (and to this day still is the case) that makes this an ineffective Linux Home Theater PC too. Since the launch of the 890GX chipset, AMD rolled out the 880G chipset as a less-expensive solution for motherboard vendors and offers a stripped-down graphics processor of what is found in the 890GX and is branded as the ATI Radeon HD 4250. Today we have a few benchmarks of the Radeon HD 4250 (880G) under Linux for your viewing pleasure.

    It's a typo on HP's behalf, they've fixed it up now. I should of been clearer.

    No, he actually means 7270.

    i don't get it no one in this threat say anyhing about 'Q' ?? or do you use my 'Q'ness just to say thinks what you officaly can not say ?

    Q'ness wispers something about the shader based video acccleration in the OS driver and Q'nessness also buys an hd42xx pc last days and he thinks that system works well for kick out his mom intel igp shitty shit pc.

    Qness also thinks Fusion is getting fucking nice for system for his next pc..

    thalk in Qnessnessness is fucking awesome you know what Q means if you use the Q you are lighted up by QQQQnneeeessss

    I stumbled across this post as I seek a solution to system instability that seems to be arising out of the graphics system for my 785G board with Radeon HD 4200 IGP [Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H (AMD 785G chipset AMD SB710) BIOS updated to version F8].

    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to set up my system correctly, or participate in some way to assist the Fedora community in getting open source support for this hardware.

    I have tried Fedora 12 through to 14 on my system. I have tried to poke under the hood as far as I could with my limited knowledge. Things have definitely improved.

    My system was plagued by SIGSEGV and SIGABRT errors earlier. I was able to achieve some stability on F13 with the Catalyst driver and a specific kernel version. I installed F14 this weekend. Keen to stick with the open source driver, was glad to see Compiz work initially. Ran ok for a while, then started getting SIGSEGVs again. So I turned that off and went back to the default (The standard desktop effect is 2D, I guess). Don't know where to go from here. Or is this the best that is presently possible with this hardware? Would appreciate some direction.

    I am trying to maintain a history of my findings << here >>, hoping someone with knowledge of linux graphics can point out how to get this right.
    As far as I know, that board should be running perfect in F14. You may have a defective board or possibly RAM. I would suggest, if possible, try installing an add-in video card and see if that functions normal. Also, if you have more than one stick of RAM, try pulling one and then the other and see if that solves it. Also, be sure that your RAM is clocked properly!

    Here's the relevant phoronix news article relating to it:

    Sorry if i wasn't clear. I'm a fairly happy user of the OSS drivers, I only wish they would be faster and support more of the hardware's capabilities. But what i wrote above is what would need to happen for me to seriously consider switching back to fglrx. Without #1, it would be impossible. #2 and #3 are the only things i can think that would tempt me.
    I don't think that *anything* could convince me to switch to the blob... Even on the nvidia side of things, I use nouveau. It just works so much nicer

    #1: That is the WHOLE IDEA. You don't want everyone running the blob at this crucial time when the open driver needs proper testing/bug_reports/fixing. Ubuntu is the ideal distro to support with the blob driver since it has the majority of the technologically unsophisticated users and doesn't tend to contribute much upstream relative to other major bleeding edge distros. (note: don't anyone be offended by this, I am ***NOT*** speaking in absolutes).

    In other words, you want to use the blob, you use either an older distro or stick to Ubuntu. If you feel like pushing open source ahead, participate in Fedora.

    #2: Would definitely be nice. There are a few people in a few places very interested in this, and we will likely end up, sooner or later, with a very general GPU-assist infrastructure built on Gallium3D. It won't be offering *full* decode, but will give you that final boost needed to bring the VAST VAST VAST majority of machines not quite sufficient into being able to handle HD videos. It also has much more long-term utility than a "magic box" solution since it very easily lends itself to adding in support for additional encodings, such as VP8, which you aren't going to see added to current-generation UVD. Maybe the next, but that will be along with a new chip.

    #3: You aren't seriously complaining that windoze games don't work on linux, are you? Note: If you are really worried about video games, then you are a member of a FRINGE USER GROUP. Seriously, you can get a wii for $200, and it'll handle video games much better.
