Bassano del Grappa (Italy) - 24 Dec 2011

Dear customers,

It's Christmas time in Italy and in New Zealand. With the help of Hans de Ruiter, we're happy to release an updated RadeonHD driver (version 0.27) to all our AmigaOne500-Sam460 customers. The new driver offers the following new features:


* DVI/HDMI output is now supported on Radeon HD 4000 series graphics cards (R700 series chipsets)
* Compositing supported on Radeon HD graphics cards (R600/R700 chipsets)
* RV770 (Radeon HD 4850) and mobility Radeon HD chipsets are now supported (fixed the GPU initialisation)
* Compositing now supports homogeneous texture coordinates with vertex arrays on all supported chipsets (useful for image warping)
* Eliminated the intermittent graphics glitches that could occur with R600/R700 chipsets (e.g., yellow screens, fill-rect failure on 8-bit screens
* Fixed a bug that could cause some screens misalignement
* With interrupts disabled, could get multiple "vertical syncs" in one VBlank period (could cause havoc with timing). FIXED
* Fixed a number of R500 (Radeon X1000 series) compositing bugs that caused various things to be rendered incorrectly (e.g., the intermittent dark/black separators and backgrounds in AmiDock)
* The mouse pointer now disappears when it's supposed to (i.e., MouseBlanker works, and SDL games no longer have two pointers)

All our customers should send an email to this address: info@acube-systems.com
with their name and board serial number (which can be found on a sticker on the motherboard). We'll need 2 days to process your request.

Please Note: our offices are closed until 27th of December

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Excellent work Hans, installed just fine! Windows look fantastic, now am gonna have to invest in a KVM in the new year!

My result from GfxBench:

I have no idea what the 61 means in this: 1920×1080@61 (32 bit), but the results made the first page! 3,262.70.

http://hdrlab.org.nz/benchmark/gfxbench2d/OS/AmigaOS/Result/508

Only beaten by 3,490.64 at 1920x1200@60 (32 bit), a higher resolution I would have thought would make it slower - but clearly that @60 whatever it refers to makes a slight difference.

The 61 is your screen's frame-rate.

The other result could also be obtained with a card running at a higher clock speed (e.g., a factory overclocked card), or any number of other reasons.
