Radeon HD 2000-4000 Compositing is Operational

An image of a composited Workbench screen on a Radeon HD 4650The title of this post says it all; compositing for Radeon HD 2000-4000 graphics cards (R6xx-R7xx chipsets) is done. This is another milestone for the RadeonHD driver AmigaOS 4.x. Completion of this major feature puts the support for Radeon HD cards (R6xx-R7xx chipsets) almost on par with the support for the Radeon X1000 series (R5xx chipsets). I say almost because a few of the minor blitter acceleration functions,and DVI and VBlank interrupts are are still to do. As always, there is more work to do. Nevertheless, a composited Workbench performs well with these cards.

So, what's next? Well, apart from the aforementioned DVI and interrupt support, I am eager to get 3D drivers up and running. DVI is something that I'd like to get working soon as I use a 4 port DVI KVM, and so would like to be able to stop switching to VGA.

  • Excellent news Hans, can't wait to see it complete and up and running on my Sam 460. And of course minigl/3d support when its done.
