AMD Catalyst 10.2 For Linux Gets Direct2D

,----[ Quote ]
| This morning we reported on AMD revealing 
| forthcoming Catalyst driver changes, 
| particularly a set of new features that 
| applied to Windows users. However, we hinted 
| that there might be some changes coming to the 
| Linux driver and now Catalyst 10.2 for Linux 
| is out there so we have the first confirmation 
| of what may be to come. 



AMD Releases OpenCL ATI GPU Support For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| AMD has released the fourth beta of the ATI
| Stream SDK 2.0, which provides a complete
| OpenCL development platform with OpenCL ATI
| GPU support for the ATI Radeon HD 4000/5000
| series. Besides running OpenCL on the GPU,
| this ATI SDK also supports running OpenCL
| on SSE3-capable, multi-core CPUs from both
| AMD and Intel too. The ATI Stream SDK is
| available for x86 and x86_64 Linux, with
| OpenSuSE 11.0 and Ubuntu 9.04 being
| officially supported.


AMD Radeon HD 5750/5770

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to the Linux support for the
| Radeon HD 5700 series, it is there with
| Catalyst 9.10. However, Eyefinity is not
| yet supported on Linux and OverDrive is not
| yet working, but both items will be
| addressed. Likewise, UVD2 will be coming
| very soon as well. The ATI Radeon HD 5750
| and 5770 are impressive mid-range graphics
| cards from AMD that will be sure to shake-
| up the market. There is also open-source
| support for these graphics cards just out
| on the horizon.


AMD Updates Its R500 3D Programming Guide

,----[ Quote ]
| While at the same time as churning out the
| R600/700 3D code and beginning to work on the
| R800 2D/mode-setting code, AMD's open-source
| developers have released an updated R500 3D
| programming guide.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
