[News] Radeon to Have Free Drivers in Linux

Hash: SHA1

Kernel Log: Open source drivers for new Radeon graphics chips

,----[ Quote ]
| The X.org and kernel developers are working on 
| drivers to support the DirectX 11 graphics 
| cards in AMD's Radeon HD 5000 series. While 
| the proprietary AMD drivers have been 
| supported for some time, not even the latest, 
| recently released version co-operates with X 
| Server 1.7, which has already been available 
| for several months. The kernel developers have 
| released numerous new stable kernels and are 
| discussing the integration of utrace in great 
| detail.


Today, Delayed GPU Switching Comes To Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Two days ago we reported on hybrid graphics 
| coming to Linux in a crude form that allowed 
| switching between graphics processors on 
| notebook computers that utilize dual graphics 
| processors, one that's meant to deliver the 
| best energy efficient performance while the 
| other GPU is for maximizing the graphics 
| performance in demanding environments. Just 24 
| hours after this kernel patch hit the Internet 
| it already went through four revisions by Red 
| Hat's David Airlie, which delivered better 
| switching and greater notebook compatibility. 
| Since yesterday this patch has already 
| undergone a few more revisions. 



More AMD Radeon 5770 Linux Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this week AMD launched the Radeon HD
| 5700 series GPUs using their Juniper GPUs as
| part of the Evergreen family. We published
| Linux benchmarks of the Radeon HD 5750/5770 on
| Tuesday with our thoughts on these new mid-
| range graphics cards, but today there are a
| few more Ubuntu results to add in for these
| ATI graphics cards.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
