hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : DVI support in Radeon HD drivers

good news from Hans:

DVI output for Radeon HD 4000 series cards


Posted by Hans de Ruiter

I am pleased to announce that the RadeonHD driver for AmigaOS 4.x can now also output to DVI on Radeon HD 4000 series cards. Apart from being another item ticked off the driver development to-do list, from a personal perspective this means that I can now use my 4-port DVI KVM switch fully. Previously, switching to my Sam460ex would mean the monitor switching to the VGA output, and then manually switching to DVI again when switching back to another machine. The button on my monitor for switching inputs has already lost its "click" sensation due to the large amount of switching, so I am glad to hand that task over to the KVM.

You missed Han's previous Blog entry.

Indeed I have! It's nice to be surprised in a good way :) I didn't think Hans will get all this working so soon! If he continues to work at this pace the future is looking very bright!

This isn't good. When I bought my A1 I just picked everything off the shelf. And with OS4 it all worked fine. Now my X1000 isn't even here and it's almost up to the stage where I need to buy a 2nd hand gfx card for it!

I checked and most computer shops have Radeon 3xxx/4xxx cards available and it doesn't look like they will become unavailable any time soon. In fact you can still pick up brand new Radeon 9250's, which is a much older card. Most PC users out there are not game fanatics who always want the latest and greatest.

It's been 3 years & 3 months since v0.65 was released, be nice to have an updated version.
