Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Enhancer Software Graphics Upgrade on AMIStore
   posted by amigakit on 25-Oct-2018 10:40:40 (3472 reads)
A-EON Technology is pleased to release the Enhancer Software Graphics Upgrade on AMIStore App Store. It is now available to download on Updater tool for those who have ordered it.

This upgrade introduces two important features:

* Breaking the 256MB Video memory barrier in Warp3D Nova and Warp3D "Classic" Southern Islands
* Polaris chipset 2D and 3D support (Radeon RX only)

Everyone that orders this package will receive a licence for the forthcoming Enhancer Software 2 release.

What does it contain?

* RadeonHD version 3.6 driver
* RadeonRX version 1.11 driver
* Warp3D Nova 3D Driver for RadeonRX

Requirements

Enhancer Software version 1.x required. It is recommended to upgrade to the latest Enhancer Software 1.4 before installation of this package.

To use the RadeonHD v3.6 driver, you will need:

* RadeonHD PCI Express Graphics Card (Southern Islands or Oland Chipset)
* A1222
* X1000
* X5000
* A1-500 / SAM 460ex
* SAM 440ep with PCI to PCI-E adapter

To use the RadeonRX driver, you will need:

* Radeon RX 460/470/480/540/550/560(D)/570/580 (Polaris chipset)
* A1222
* X5000
* A1-500 / SAM460: At present there is no Uboot output with the current U-boot Version
but the Machine boots to Workbench without any problems with an RX card and driver installed.

The RadeonRX driver will currently function with the X5000 and A1222. Other systems will require a firmware upgrade before the RadeonRX driver will be functional. Please contact your system manufacturer for details on any planned firmware upgrades.

Upgrades and Payment

AMIStore will automatically calculate upgrade discounts based on the previous version of Enhancer Software that is on your AmiSphere account. This discounted price will be shown when you add the item to your Shopping Bag in AMIStore.

You can pay for this in AMIStore by Paypal or Credit Card. Local sales tax (VAT) will be applied if applicable (only affects EU buyers).

Credits

This work has been the sterling efforts of Amiga Developer Team member, Hans De Ruiter. It has been a year in development and test.

@K-L

Yes 256MB barrier is broken with both RadeonHD v3 and RadeonRX

@kamelit0
Price is dependent on what version of Enhancer Software you bought previously and your local Sales Tax/VAT (applicable to EU buyers only).

@amigakit

Second question : X1000 is not supported by Radeon RX driver. Since we have to ask the manufaturer (A-EON/AmigaKit) for an upcomig firmware upgrade, let's ask the question here : when ?

(I was going to put my waiting RX 580 in the X1000 before I saw thait it is not supported).

The CFE source code/development was done prior to us getting involved. We are working to obtain the source code so we can update it for modern graphics cards.

Uboot on the SAM will likely need an update too.

@K-L

If you add it to your Shopping bag you will see it will be a lot less as you already own the Enhancer Software Plus. AMIStore calculates the discounted price and adds it to the Shopping Bag based on previous purchases with your AmiSphere account.

A Correction :

The RadeonRX driver does work with the Sam460 models.
There is no Uboot output with the current U-boot Version
But the Machine boots to workbench ok.

@sinesurs

I agree with you, as the RX driver was allready 1 year in development and no word of of a new uboot.

Thanks for the update, been streaming some Formula One in full screen 720p va SMTube and MPlayer just now to try it out and have to say the performance is really good. Hardly any pixelation at all 😉

I was interested in this for RX card support. So I can just go out and buy a new card. But if it doesn't work in the X1000 there's not much point for me. Which is what I bought the Enhancer package for in the first place anyway. I'll just have to track down an older card.

Also, on AmiStore it lists X1000 as supported, which is slightly confusng.
