Software News   Software News : New RadeonHD 2.4 From A-EON Technology
   posted by amigakit on 27-Oct-2014 21:59:20 (7056 reads)
New RadeonHD 2.4 drivers
Digital Composite Video Support

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of new and updated RadeonHD drivers for AmigaOS 4.



A-EON Technology have once again commissioned Amiga graphics developer, Hans de Ruiter, to update the existing RadeonHD V1.0 drivers to add support for the new range of RadeonHD graphics cards in the R5, R7 and R9 series. Existing registered owners of the RadeonHD v1.0 drivers can update to v1.2 free of charge on AMIStore or through the A-EON secure download server.


New RadeonHD V2 driver
In our ongoing and continued commitment to the AmigaONE X1000 platform, we also commissioned Hans to deliver hardware accelerated video playback using the RadeonHD graphics card’s own GPU. The delivers full screen 1080p video playback for AmigaOS 4 using RadeonHD graphics cards for the X1000 and compatible next generation AmigaOS systems. In addition we commissioned Hans to implement DMA support for the X1000 which unlocks the raw graphic power of the RadeonHD cards. The grpahics DMA work has additionally benefited other compatible AmigaOS plaforms.

The main features of the V2 driver are:

● YUV bitmaps with CompositeTags(). YUV420p bitmaps are 37.5% the size of 32-bit ARGB bitmaps so there's less data to copy to the graphics card.
● While overlay is restricted to 1-2 surfaces and does not respect transparency, Composite Video can render an unlimited number of surfaces and can perform alpha blending instead of chroma keying which can be used for advanced video effects.
● Videos can be Rotated, warped and even projected into another video.
● Alpha blending/compositing can be used for cross-fade between video files & other effects.
● Full 1080p Video playback with supported video files
● Support for the latest generation of AMD Radeon Rx graphics cards from the R5, R7 and R9 series**

The RadeonHD V1.2 & V2 drivers reaffirm our ongoing commitment to support the AmigaONE X1000 and our future hardware systems.

So RadeonHD 2.4 driver is also available for 460ex owners?

How does it work with AmigaOne 500 systems?

@amigakit

Any info on the kind of video playback performance users can expect depending on what system and video card they are using?

Very well. I'm using it right now on my A500 system.

@armchair lawyers
Yes, I left off the "One" so deal with it

Seriously, is that necessary?
Pre-emptive antagonising. Not a great look for the project manager.
Im not even one of the people you're baiting and it pissed me off.
Just lost a customer cos of this nonsense. I'd previously been looking forward to purchasing OS4.1 final, but Im not supporting these sorts of clowns.

If I wanted to support clowns I'd visit a circus.

Why, because I questioned someone for acting like a moron?
If someone behaves like an idiot Im hardly going to support them.

How is this difficult to understand?

The very fact you questioned it makes me wonder if indeed *you* are drunk.

Does this work with the on-board Micro A1 Radeon gfx card?
Radeon 7000

@phoenixkonsole

... and you wonder if some of your posts are deleted or nobody wants to join your synergy....


@all: This here the same situation as the last years. The radeonHD driver is provided from A-EON and have to be purchased from there. Why should it now be different, because a final version of AmigaOS costs now only 30 bucks?

We never had the state of current 2.4 HD drivers if nobody had supported it. Development ist not a thing of a weekend or two.

And we all have the choice.
1. buy not a HD Card if you don't need it older cards works fine with the radeon driver, expect some new features. I know people who are happy also with radeon9xxx or the sam460 onboard gfx.

2. buyers of the radeonHD 1.0 get the 1.2 as free update and get able to use new types of cards

3. If you want all, buy a 2.4 and get more improvements like better video playback and support the further development.


I am glad to have the drivers, many thanks for Hans and its hard work on it. And I am looking forward to more from him.

But version 1.2 is not still available?

I tried to download it from A-Eon site but I obtained the old version of driver (1.0)

Ohhh now you are moving things around.
I was 5 years a happy joy fellow now I change my Position and give a shit about cooperation in any form. On top it will be the total opposite.
Now I will just compete and say my opinion as customer and competitor.
Isn't it my freedom to say my opinion?
