software OS4   software OS4 : RadeonHD driver update
   posted by TrevorDick on 27-Jun-2012 9:06:41 (2899 reads)


We are also pleased to confirm that Hans is making excellent progress with the RadeonHD driver as he works towards the version 1.0 release. The latest version (0.46) has just been uploaded to the AmigaONE X1000 beta test team for testing. Registered AmigaONE X1000 "First Contact" customers will be able download the latest update from the A-EON Technology website in the near future.

About Hans de Ruiter & HDRLab: Hans de Ruiter is an electrical & electronic engineer and leading AmigaOS developer and Amiga enthusiast. His website - HDRLab - details various projects, many of which are AmigaOS related. The biggest of these is the RadeonHD driver for AmigaOS, an ambitious project that aims to deliver modern graphics capabilities for the AmigaOS platform.

About AmigaOS: The AmigaOS dates back to 1985 with the introduction of the landmark Amiga 1000. Today, under the guidance and control of Hyperion Entertainment, AmigaOS has evolved into a modern operating system without losing that intrinsic "Amiga" look and feel.

About the AmigaONE X1000: The AmigaONE X1000 is not like other computers. It is a culmination of efforts by real Amiga enthusiasts and developers to create powerful, modern desktop hardware for the AmigaOS. It is the natural evolution of the Amiga's PowerPC lineage and is based on the PA-Semi Dual-core PA6T-1682M CPU and includes Xena, a "Software Defined Silicon" co-processor. Above all it runs the latest version of the AmigaOS.

About ACube Systems S.r.l.: ACube Systems are the designers and developers of the Sam440, Sam460 and AmigaOne 500 computer systems for AmigaOS 4.

Im very sorry if this is in the wrong place, but Im primarily intrested in HD5000 series and up, not just because its an available, supported modern GPU.. but that its a programmable GPU, using OpenCL.

I was having a quick look of the OpenCl 1.1 index sheet, and something caught my eye.

OpenCl 1.1 adds the ability for one CL processing element, to interact with, and alter the programming and behaviour of another CL processing element, at (any) time?

Does this now mean that an AX1000 with an HD5000 GPU, has 40 copies of the classic Copper Blitter cross modifying combo?

Could this mean that using Classic Amiga graphics tricks, the new Graphics cards would be able to have things like smart interfaces, where a given widget was the whole processing structure for that widget, instead of having to call back to the CPU, even for things such as screen effects processing functions etc?

Sorry.. I get carried away at times... 8(

Thanks Trevor.. Im sorry I still havent won the lotto yet 8(

128 AX1000s would give me a Sequioa rig. .

Ah, that was it, in order to build a really, Really cheap Amiga supercomputer cluster, I need to be able to abuse the bidirectional DVI Crossfire function to allow intermachine graphics card communication, not just intramachine.

I wouldnt even call this impossible, just extremely difficult 8}

Ill go sit in the corner.

In essence, yes. That's basically what GPGPU is all about. It's MADE for processing textures and bumpmaps, but it CAN be used for much more.
