  • How well does HD4670 perform with open source drivers?

    Gaming (mostly quake live these days) - forget it?
    Video playback acceleration? Is vdpau two times/three times as good?

    And how much faster is HD4670 with proprietary drivers compared to Nvidia GeForce GT 220?

    This is the wrong place to report issues. Either open a new thread or report a bug on bugs.freedesktop.org. You may want to try latest 2.6.37-rc and xf86-video-ati from git first.

    Does anyone notice an occasional flicker?

    I've just installed xorg-drv-ati -git and a 2.6.36.1 kernel on my machine with a HD4890, and I've noticed that the entire screen flickers occasionally. Has anyone else seen anything similar, please?

    They use the classic driver from the release as shipped by their distro. Any new developments in the classic driver will not reach them more than developments in the gallium driver.

    And the current state of r600g in Mesa git looks better than the r600c shipped by distros today.

    Please make that damned row green, so users will stop complaining about stupid things. As you said nobody cares about it, but everybody will earn peace and tranquility.

    P.S.
    Edit time sucks.
