    Hm, I don't think so:

    • That slide says that the DX10 API can be used on DX9 hardware, which is true. I believe there are actually 5 levels of support within DX10, 3 for DX9 hardware and 2 for DX10 hardware.

      AFAIK the Vista-level Aero interface uses DX10L9 when running Win7 on DX9 hardware (and you can do that with a Vista driver).

      The full slide set gives some more context :

      • Sorry to make a question not 'compatible' with the above discussion but can someone tell me why i can use resolution '1440x900' at vista at 75Hz refresh rate and at Linux only at 60Hz??

        Details: I connect my Syncmaster T190 monitor via DVI at an HD 3450 card, Linux openSUSE 11.1, Xserver 1.5.2, Catalyst 9.2 installed.

        The strange fact is that amdcccle reports 75Hz as maximum refresh rate but at monitor preferences where you set resolution and refresh rate it only lets me choose 60Hz...

        Any ideas or knowledge on this??

        • Also another one:
          Does anyone of you guys managed to set up Hybrid Crossfire at an Xorg 7.4 environment?? (always speaking for xserver 1.5.x)

          Cause at opensuse 11 with Xorg 7.3 i set up things at once but now at opensuse 11.1 which uses xserver 1.5.2 and Xorg 7.4 whenever I enable the crossfire chain my PC stops booting when loading X. Doesn't freeze, just stops booting procedure and screen remains black when it supposed to show mouse X cursor you know...

          • And a comment for the previous discussion...

            Aero just doesn't diserve to be regarded or called a 3D compositing window manager...

            Anyone who have seen or used Compiz, KDE 4's 3D effects or even the good old Beryl understands what I mean...

            Just ignore it and use Virtualbox inside a Linux system to install win XP, if you obligatoraly need a windoze environment, and then spin it with Compiz!...

              • hybrid graphics laptops?

                Does anybody know what are the current laptops with ati powerxpress?

                The ones I've found so far are in this blog:

                  Here is the Xorg.log with latest drivers (9.3 x86_64). http://pastebin.com/f1a072609

                  Same deal, just a blank screen when you try and start X. None of the catalyst drivers have ever worked. Tried both Ubuntu and Fedora. Distro builds or from the ati-installer.

                  XP/Vista catalyst works, and so does the open source drivers, so the card should be OK.

                  AMD 4200+, Asus A8N-Sli, Visiontek HD4870, 2Gb ram, FC10 x86_64

                      Also if i try to log-off the laptop hangup
