software OS4   software OS4 : Sam460 and AmigaOne 500 now with RadeonHD driver!
   posted by eliyahu on 25-Jun-2012 23:24:21 (6743 reads)
From the ACube website:

At ACube Systems we always want to help the Amiga community as much as we can. With the recent news about Hans' Radeon HD driver and its licence, we decided to offer the Radeon HD driver for FREE with all new orders of a Sam460 board or an AmigaOne 500 system.

And to better thank our customers that already ordered an AmigaOne 500 from us, we would like to offer them the same Radeon HD driver!!!

Our online shop is already updated. If you purchase now a Sam460 motherboard or an AmigaOne 500 system, you'll automatically receive the Radeon HD driver license.

We'll contact in the coming days every current AmigaOne 500 owners to give them a driver license.

ACube's financial situation must be pretty good.
I hope they are not being too nice.

I have paid the license fee of 28.85 and not even sure if I needed to now! Was very confusing, I am an existing ACube customer with a SAM460 and thought I wouldn't get updated drivers unless I paid the fee. I have a Radeon HD 4650 fitted which currently has good 2D suport but lacks overlay and 3D support, will that be included in OS4.2, just not clear to me!

Or have I wasted 28.85

That's what I expected from a well-known, serious company like ACube, and I am very happy it's happened. Congrats to m3x for having fixed a very silly situation, I hope this didn't cost too much.

I hope the next time a opportunity which might be useful to the whole platform (like Hans Radeon drivers) won't be wasted in a pointless competition.

Great!

Thank you Acube.

Does the owner of the Sam440ep that buy a a PCi versione of RadeonHD video card have to pay the driver license?

Thank you

I'm now waiting for all those people, who hurriedly jumped to the wrong conclusions & complained, to now apologize to those involved (as well as thanking A-Cube). And perhaps they will also learn not to be in such a hurry next time.

I do not think you wasted the money:

"We'll contact in the coming days every current AmigaOne 500 owners to give them a driver license."

As I understand it only new Sam460 get the license, not existing customers

Why did you think you *needed* any driver updates? Isn't your Radeon HD 4650 working fine with the current drivers?

@all
IMHO these new drivers are mainly so we can use Radeon HD 5xxx & above cards... but those cards are unlikely to perform signficantly better than the 4xxx cards at 2D (since manufacturers stopped bothering about 2D a long time ago now), and the 4xxx cards should already be more than good enough at the kind of 3D we are likely to need.

So IMHO the only reason for the Radeon HD 5xxx & above cards is so that new OS4 machines can be supplied with easily (and cheaply) available graphics cards. Which is only relevant to buyers of new OS4 machines, and all the moaning in the other thread was entirely irrelevant.

"overlay and 3D support, will that be included in OS4.2"

What I know is that 3D support is part of OS4.2

Overlay-support is not planned (Blog of Hans)

Just to relieve your conscience , consider this nice gesture as a gift to Hans for his hard work. He really deserves that!

Have a nice day!

Because drivers are always being updated, it's a never ending thing! Yes my Radeon HD 4650 is working fine, but drivers get tweaks that improve them or make them faster, just didn't want to miss out thats all, not complaining at all!
