8.41驱动已经有预览了,比起8.40,仅仅一个版本号的差异,居然在不少测试中有50%以上甚至成倍的性能提升。全面支持ati/amd显卡(9500以上),包括hd系列至2900XT。
有兴趣的请看 http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=a ... =824&num=1

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=a ... =822&num=1

另外,8.42开始支持aiglx,a饭的多年夙愿终于在下月实现。但愿可以和ubuntu7.10一同发布。

For months now Linux users have been battered with driver releases that have really equated to be nothing more than maintenance releases. These releases have just fixed a small number of bugs and in some cases, the driver did more harm than good if you were plagued by the watermark issue, broken X-Video playback support, or one of the other problems. Throughout this time the driver continued with its performance imbalance and no AIGLX support for Beryl and Compiz, which had even led us to dubbing the 8.40.4 driver the "One Bug A Day Keeps AIGLX Away" release. At the same time we've been telling you that AMD has been working steadfast to deliver a brand new Linux driver later in the year.

While many thought this day would never come or that it was some form of propaganda, it's coming and it's coming this month. The AMD fglrx 8.41 driver features a brand new underlying code-base that has been under development for well over a year. At Phoronix we have literally spent hundreds of hours using and testing this new driver, and to say the least it is truly a new experience on the ATI Linux front. The new driver delivers massive performance improvements, Radeon HD 2000 (R600) support, and a whole lot more. This article is the first of five articles that will be published today at Phoronix as we examine the new AMD Linux driver extensively on all fronts from seeing how it can handle the flagship ATI Radeon HD 2900XT graphics card to going back to past graphics card families to show the dramatic performance improvements.

Four of our articles today are looking at the new fglrx driver while the fifth one is looking at what's possibly coming down the pipeline soon. In this article, we will just be sharing the facts about this new driver and what exactly you can expect to see. In the other articles today we will be looking at the performance in the Radeon X800 "R400", Radeon X1000 "R500", and Radeon HD 2000 "R600" series. While we recommend you read all of our articles, the reason for all of these articles today is that there are clear performance improvements all across the board Whether you are using a Radeon X300 purchased a few years ago or the Radeon X1950PRO, the 8.41 driver is noticeably faster. .How much faster? In many cases it is about 50% faster while in some configurations it may go as high as 90% or more. In fact, in some benchmarks the Mobility Radeon X300 was over 10x faster! But you will need to read all of the articles to find out all of the details. This news is especially gratifying seeing as over the past sixteen months there really have been no major performance improvements, as is highlighted in The ATI R500 On Linux: Then & Now.

Accompanying this new proprietary driver announcement, AMD will be making another very special announcement in the near future. Stay tuned for the Phoronix article on that event.

Where's AIGLX? Well, unfortunately due to delays later in their development cycle for the 8.41 driver, AIGLX was pushed out of this month's development and release cycle. The AIGLX support will, however, arrive next month with the fglrx 8.42 driver.

The fglrx 8.41 driver is focused primarily for the R600 series and the 8.42 driver will contain additional fixes and optimizations for the older generation of ATI graphics processors. While the 8.41 release is designed for the R600 series, in our tests with the R300 through R500 series the driver has worked out quite well. There have been some corruption issues and other minor problems but nothing severe.

A number of packaging scripts had to be updated for this release including Fedora. The basis of the Fedora 8 support is now in the fglrx 8.41 driver; however, no Linux 2.6.23 patch has been included with the scripts. Therefore, in order to use Fedora 8 with fglrx 8.41 you must either compile an older kernel or use one of the patches available elsewhere. Proper support for Fedora 8 should arrive next month with Linux 2.6.23 support.

With the past few maintenance releases there has been readers in the Phoronix Forums coming up with various names and phrases to vent their frustration with the old fglrx driver. So what are we calling the fglrx 8.41 driver? This release has been codenamed "Oktoberfest" for the festival taking place later this month in Munich, Germany. Oktoberfest is known for its celebrations and parties (it is the world's largest fair) and with all of the good things introduced in this driver and what AMD's next announcement is all about, the name was well deserved. The 8.41 driver is also the "Holy Crap!" edition if you so desire.

This driver has been in development since last year, but with AMD simultaneously having to maintain the existing fglrx driver and continuing with monthly releases, this new driver took quite a bit of time to develop. The fglrx 8.41 driver finally outperforms the NVIDIA binary driver when it comes to the frame-rate and the Radeon HD 2000 support is long overdue. However, the latest work by the ATI Graphics Products Group shows AMD's serious dedication to the long-term support of its customers and the Linux platform. We were even blown away by the performance gains during testing! These improvements dramatically increase the vitality of the ATI Linux experience.

The fglrx 8.41 driver is not available to the public today, but it should be made available at AMD's website within the next week. AMD was gracious enough to let Phoronix publish these results today. Also keep in mind that the fglrx 8.41 driver is designed for the R600 series and that there may be a few bugs initially for older ATI hardware. In the near future will also be a workstation driver release based upon this new driver, but in the mean time FireGL owners will want to stick to the fglrx 8.40 driver.

All of this is very exciting news and goes to show the expedited rate at which AMD is listening to the Linux community and is taking serious effort into enhancing the state of ATI Linux, and the Linux desktop experience in general. You can expect many more articles in the coming days and weeks. Be sure to share your thoughts in the Phoronix Forums.

When looking over these results, in some of the less demanding benchmarks the Radeon HD 2900XT wasn't much faster than the Radeon X1800XT. However, the HD 2900XT quickly separated itself from the rest of the pact with the more graphics-intensive settings. The AMD Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB was able to run at about 92 frames per second with Quake 4 at 1680 x 1050 with high quality settings. If this R600 support were with the old OpenGL component, the game likely wouldn't have even been playable. The Radeon HD 2900XT had sharply outperformed the overclocked GeForce 8600GT, which also wouldn't have been possible with the old fglrx driver. While we hadn't included any GeForce 8800 series results in this article, based upon our past experience with the G80 series, the Radeon HD 2900XT is a sharp contender against the GeForce 8800GTS 640MB and GeForce 8800GTX under Linux. However, at this time NVIDIA is facing some performance struggles of their own with the GeForce 8 series under Linux.

The Radeon HD 2900XT is shining bright under Linux, but its support is coming four months late. It's not as bad as waiting six months like we had with the R500 series, but NVIDIA has been delivering same-day Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris drivers for many of their new graphics processors. Granted, the immediate GeForce 8 driver support had caused some nasty bugs and other issues with NVIDIA engineers still addressing the performance problem. Now that AMD has moved to this new Linux driver, perhaps the wait for Linux support on the R700 series will not be as long.

Thanks to the new driver, the Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB offers the best price/performance ratio of any high-end graphics card under Linux. The Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB costs roughly $400 USD where as the GeForce 8800GTX 768MB is in excess of $520 USD. Aside from the gaming performance, this graphics card features stunning graphics capabilities and handles video playback very well. Based upon what we have seen with the R600 under Linux in the past month of internal use, the experience using the fglrx 8.41 driver should be free of any major bugs. HDMI on the HD 2900XT will also work via the included DVI to HDMI dongle. Any bugs that do come up should hopefully be fixed promptly in the monthly fglrx driver updates.

While many of you have had problems with ATI/AMD in the past, with this new driver we express a vote of full confidence in the latest work by AMD's Graphics Products Group and encourage all of you to at least try out this new driver. The Linux driver announcement today and another announcement in the near future shows AMD's serious dedication to the long-term support of the Linux platform.
