AMD Adds to Linux Support

June 19th, 2008 by obsidian

Phoronix is reporting that AMD has announced additional Linux support:

AMD is in the process of pushing new high-end features into their Linux driver — such as Multi-GPU CrossFire support — and with the ATI Radeon HD 4850 they have even begun showing off Tux, the Linux mascot, on their product packaging and providing Linux drivers on their product CDs!

    I hope that call of duty 4 performance with linux/wine will go better after this.

    Unfortunately it will most likely took another year or so till there opensource drivers get those features and 3D performance we gamers simply need.

    I started using linux, when XWindows had to be downloaded, the source code, the driver had to be configured and compiled, and then XWindows had to be configured by hand.

    My first, and so far last card was ATI. I have since been an NVIDIA fan, with a few Matrox cards during the years. Oh, and there was one Trident, remember those.

    ATI has been promising support for years.

    Excuse my being a little sceptical, but I am more hopeful now that AMD has bought ATI. But I will believe it when I see it. And then my only reason for a switch would be if the ATI and AMD combo really started kicking butt.
