News   News : RadeonHD Driver bundled with AmigaOS 4.1 for Sam460ex
   posted by Lecta on 23-Dec-2010 22:36:51 (7416 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.

As i understand (but maybe i am wrong), drivers from Hanz should be just part of AOS, without any "sam460 only", because it was tested on other sams, on a1 , and even some tryes was done for peg2. I believe it will be part of OS at all.

@Gothmog

It would seem that the Radeon HD drivers will be included in a later update of OS4.1.x for machines .

The probable reason why Acube have secured it for the version of OS 4.1 update 2 for the Sam460ex would be that if it was not included then you would have either had to use the onboard graphics or use the PCI slot with an older Radeon card. This would have limited your SATA and display options and thus the appeal of the Sam460ex until the Radeon HD Drivers were released.


Quote:

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.

Any chance the driver could be adapted for the forthcoming version of OS 4.1 classic?

Does anyone know when the 460 will be released? I have been checking Amigakit now for weeks.

Merry christmas everyone

Nice!

So the next question: When can we expect these HD cards to do what they are supposed to do: To actually play HD videos thoruogh mplayer or DvPlayer?

Even a 550MHz Sam440 could play full-HD movies if they got access to such a card!

Great news for 460 users!

What about 440ep users? I feel we have been a bit left out a bit here :/


Imagine Nvidia with cuda technology in amiga os4.1

@Magic

There are PCI versions of at least one of the Radeon HD cards out there as well.

Don't despair.

@ Magic

From Hans's blog and the latest Sam-flex Uboot update notes
I have a feeling that one of these will work when the drivers are released for other machines.

Not to break your heart. But the sam440 has not been left out.

@Amiga1200Mark
Hopefully soon. The betatesters are testing out the sam460 right now. Let's hope it works like a charm.

Please do not use these adaptors. I have one beta tester with an adaptor such as this, and he gets ridiculously low data transfer speeds. Slow data transfer to/from the card means slow graphics.

For motherboards without PCIe, stick to the pre-built PCI cards such as the Radeon HD 4350 PCI. Higher end cards will be a bit of a waste because of the slow bus, anyway.

I'll be writing a "card recommendations" page on my website soonish.

I now have to take back what I said about the PCI-to-PCIe bridge cards. The slowness was due to poor settings for the Sam440-flex that it was plugged into, and not the bridge card. The settings for the Sam have improved in the meantime. Despite this, I still think that the bridge cards are going to be a waste. That remains to be seen though.

I have updated the
recommendations page accordingly.
