Good news for ATI/AMD card owners

Tuesday 12 July 2011 at 20:17

Good afternoon,

According to, AMD just hired two developers that are known for their contributions to X and the graphic stack.

This hiring, it seems, is in fact the first step toward a strategic shift of the company, leading to real official support for its free drivers. Still according to this source, one of the reasons stated is that support for Linux is very complex in a binary form due to the fast evolutions and binary compatibility issues between kernel versions. To the contrary, free development means better collaboration with upstream developers and simplifies the job... When you look at the quality and performance of Nvidia drivers, this "justification" for the mediocrity of the current ATI/AMD drivers seems reason enough to laugh (or cry).

Apparently, for AMD, support for emerging platforms like Android and other technologies based on Linux finally turned out to be worth revealing a few of their cards' secrets.

To increase their Linux support, the company therefore picked two contributors from the community. Michel Dänzer and Chistrian König now join John Bridgman and Alex Deucher, the employees currently working on ATI/AMD graphic card drivers.

Bottom line is, we can reasonably expect an improvement of these cards' performance on Wine in the coming months :sunglasses:
