Any point in buying RadeonHD v2 yet, when I already have v1.7 ?
Home away from home

OK, so I finally have a gfx card capable of supporting new Warp3D, and some time to look at this stuff, so I took a look at AMIStore... Browsing AMIStore, most of the products cannot yet be bought (price is T.B.A.), especially MPlayer & DvPlayer (separately or as part of Radiance Graphics).

So there doesn't seem to be anything that would yet make use of RadeonHD v2 drivers? Except maybe the 'old' (2015) version of LiveForIt-mplayer on OS4Depot? Does that work well & give a good speed-up? (And why are there two versions of LiveForIt-mplayer on OS4Depot?)


BTW, as mentioned earlier, I'm also thinking of getting the new (RadeonHD) Warp3D. Does the Warp3D version of Payback work with that? What about ioQuake3, Capehill's Quake2, and Wipeout 2097 ?

MPlayer is free. Not even sure why it's listed on the store as something to be sold. That said, many have contributed to bounties to spar porting and development.

I'd suggest asking LiveForIt for advice on best, fastest version to use with RadeonHD compositing. I am not 100 percent sure the one on OS4Depot is the fastest. I think I am using an earlier version of his work than what is there, for better results on my X1000. Sorry I am away from my Amigas until tomorrow so cannot check the version I am using until then.

Also, benefiting from the RadeonHD-supported version of Ward3D is Blender, which is loads faster with that support.

And there are games, but I'm not a gamer so will let others chime in.

For the games side look at Huno's ports:

Quake2 HD is excellent, 1024x768 with much higher quality graphics, loading time is quite a bit longer so make sure you use SFS rather than FFS.

I've not tried wipeout.

Also check out BSzili's odamex (on os4depot) and other ports. I'm running Ultimate doom with odamex on a 1920x1080x32 screen, very smooth and fast I just wish it supported Strife.

Well basically there was bounty to add some feature D&D, Menus, fix some bugs and so on.

But before this there was a bounty to optimize FFMPEG, developer in charge of that was Feanor, sadly the Feanor did have an Amiga computer. The FFPEG version he picked had bug that turned videos green,

I was supposed to use his Optimized FFMPEG. But as and optimization did not make much speed improvement over the older version of FFMPEG, but to make everyone happy I picked a newer FFPMEG with newer codecs.

Many version of FFMPEG was ported and adapted to mplayer, but my beta testers did not make effort to find the fastest.

The official place to as question so I don't need to repeat myself over and over is here:

The latest version of Hollywood might use composited video. I can't say for sure, because I can't find a mention of it in its features/release-notes. However, Hollywood's author did get early access to composited video, and actually helped find a few related bugs in the graphics library.

MPlayer is the only item that I can definitely confirm uses it. DvPlayer will hopefully get a composited video update at some point, and I'm still hoping that someone will update Odyssey's video player too. Neither have happened yet, though.

I have no idea about Payback or Wipeout 2097. Wipeout 2097 needs WarpOS emulation, and I haven't had a chance to try ReWarp yet. ReWarp is still a work-in-progress.

Other 3D games/software work, ant that includes ioQuake3, etc.

If you are looking for a gfx card, I got an R7770HD from a cex shop for £35, with a 2 year warrenty which made it affordable for me.

Out of topic.

Hans, there isn't any RAdeon HD 7850 with the "Pitcairn Pro" chipset in your compatibility list.

I can get one at good price. Works in OS4 with v2.10 drivers ?

Thanks

In theory, yes. The Pitcairn GPU is supported, and a few people have been using Radeon HD 7850s (but haven't given me their card details). However, I can't guarantee that any specific model will work.

P.S., I just added a Club 3D Radeon HD 7850 to the compatibility list.
