Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

From David Airlie, the guy who committed the code: "It may not be 100% stable yet and I'm sure we can make things a lot faster, but the basics all work for me here." So these drivers are an initial release - basically functional, but may crash, and are slow. But sure, ignore the plain truth all you like, you're way out in irrational fanboy territory here.


I'm supposed to be the one who is "in irrational territory" ... even though I posted this:

Lets wait and see how this entirely new code performs when it is made available. It is in the kernel staging area, but that means it has a lot of hardening and stability testing to get through yet.

and you are the one who came up with the topic of this sub-thread:

Only one choice for solid 3D under Linux - Nvidia

... and yet I'm allegedly the one who is a "fanboy"?

Get real.

There is a word for this type of behaviour:
