New RadeonHD Driver Release

Cardiff, 15th November 2013

A-EON Technology is pleased to announce that Version 1.0 RC2 (0.57) of the RadeonHD driver for AmigaOS 4.1 is now available for free download for AmigaONE X1000 and other registered customers.

Registered customers: http://www.a-eon.com/?page=download&os=amigaos
New customers: http://www.a-eon.com/?page=radeonhd

The new Version 1.0 RC2 (Release candidate) adds a few new features and bug fixes which improves card initialisation and solves intermittent boot problems which affected some Sapphire RadeonHD 6570 cards. The fixes and improvements include:-

Golden register initialisation code added (golden registers are a table of registers supplied by AMD's hardware engineers to be initialised on startup)

Improved the VGA (UBOOT/CFE screen) shutdown code for Evergreen+ chipsets. This solves the intermittent boot problems which affected some Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 cards. (and possibly others)

Thanks. I look forward to trying this out. I occasionaly have boot problems so I am hoping this will stop them from happening as they are quite frustrating.

This effectively means that whenever you are using your OS4 system for business, you need to cover your monitor with a blanket.

 Radeon HD driver
Thanks A-eon and Hans for the driver I have obtained a pci to pci-e adaptor and also a Sapphire Radeon HD4350 card. My machine is a non modified A1XEG4 with a ppc 7457 1267mhz with altivec enabled. with just the HD4350 card in the 33 MHz pci slot the machine boots up to kickstart and then freezes, it is looking for a file but I don't know which one. as per the instructions I have manually edited the devs monitor files and have also tried to boot with both the HD4350 and my old agp radeon 9000 card together with monitors attached to each. but on both cards the bootup stops after loading kickstart. the machine works fine with just the radeon9000 connected do I have some files missing from kickstart? the Radeon chip and pci chip are there and I have purchased and installed RadeonHD driver software?
