News   News : RadeonHD Driver bundled with AmigaOS 4.1 for Sam460ex
   posted by Lecta on 23-Dec-2010 22:36:51 (7216 reads)
Bassano del Grappa, Italy - 23 December, 2010

ACube Systems is very pleased to announce to have reached an agreement with Hans De Ruiter for including a special version of his RadeonHD driver together with the upcoming AmigaOS 4.1 for Sam460ex.

For the first time in Amiga history this driver will allow the use of modern PCI-express graphic cards together with AmigaOS 4.1. The Sam460ex will be the first hardware capable of running AmigaOS to include this feature.


Currently RadeonHD driver supports the following chipsets with full 2D hardware acceleration and DDC:
* R500 (with compositing support) - Radeon X1550, X1650, X1950 and others
* R600 - Radeon HD 2400 - HD 3450 - HD 3650 and others
* R700 - Radeon HD 4350 - HD 4650

Many thanks to Hans for his wonderful job.

We would also like to take the opportunity to extend our best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our customers.

For more info on RadeonHD drivers please visit Hans de Ruiter's home page.Hans de Ruiter's home page.

Great! The neat thing for my circumstance is that, purely by accident, I just happen to have a new Radeon HD 4350 PCIe card that's not being used anywhere. :)

Great News.

Allows the full graphics potential of the new motherboards right out of the box.

Also hope to see the benefits of Han's driver and Acube's Uboot work on
PCI-to-PCIe bridges for our PCI only machines too.

Yeah, good news !

Btw, a bit out of topic, but when i see on screenshot, only about what i think "looks cool, but if only amidock will be something like dock on macos, not so static, and with all those fancy effects" :)

EDIT: as i understand, 2d for now only ? I.e. no warp3d drivers ?

2D is most of OS, 3D needs to be OS updated.
What I dislike is that driver is exclusively ep460 version,
what about newer Radeon PCI cards that could be used
in SAM`s, Pegasos, A1 ...?

But, OK, every start is nice!

Hans has posted an update on his dev blog here

*edit*

i expect people will now ask Hans for benchmarks, and the program they can run on their current systems

I agree with an earlier post that this is great news, but I hope they "free up" this driver to work with SAMep and maybe Aniga OS4.1 classic (for PCI cards). It would be very disappointing if it is paired with only one machine type.
