  • 2. AMD 46 + Mandrake Linux ROCKS!
    Just set up my new system... DFI LanParty NF3 250Gb Motherboard AMD 64 3200+ processor 512 Corsair XMS memory Gforce FX video card Maxtor 200 GB SATA hard drive Sony DVD Mandrake 10.1 64 bit Installed with NO PROBLEMS. All hardware detected and configured. No downloading drivers, no cups problems, none of the problems the wintrolls rant about. Just a fast, easy to use system that grandmas and aunts could use with no problem. In fact they would have fewer issues because software they use every day would is already installed. Well, I am off to test out my new system...

ATI Radeon HD 4850 Linux Performance

,----[ Quote ]
| AMD is also quickly ascending to a feature parity between the Windows and
| Linux Catalyst suites. As we shared last week, CrossFire is coming to Linux
| next quarter.



AMD Makes An Evolutionary Leap In Linux Support

,----[ Quote ]
| Tux being part of their licensed box design, forthcoming CrossFire support,
| and other major features coming are major wins for the Linux community. For
| those concerned that AMD is attempting to build back up its binary blockade,
| don't worry as their open-source strategy will continue with the RV770. AMD
| engineers are in the process of sanitizing the programming documentation for
| this brand new GPU for public release in the coming weeks. We suspect the
| xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-radeonhd developers will have the documentation
| even sooner under NDA. In addition, the open-sourcing of KGrids and TCore
| will be relevant and helpful for the 2D and 3D RV770 open-source support.


AMD teraflop processor is all about open-source

,----[ Quote ]
| The Stream SDK Brook+ front-end is available as open source code.


AMD Releases Stream SDK For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| NVIDIA's competition for Stream computing is CUDA, which is the Compute
| Unified Device Architecture, or CUDA for short. CUDA has been supported on
| Linux now for some time and NVIDIA is in the process of bringing PhysX to
| CUDA, for physics acceleration thanks to their acquisition of AGEIA. Intel's
| competition is Ct, or C for Throughput Computing.


AMD Stream SDK Coming To Linux Soon

,----[ Quote ]
| NVIDIA has long supported their CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture)
| technology on Linux for allowing general-purpose code algorithms to be
| executed on the graphics processor, while AMD and their Stream Computing
| support has been absent on Linux. AMD has only been supporting their Stream
| SDK on Windows XP, but this morning we have confirmation that the Software
| Development Kit will be released for Linux in the coming days.



Chips and Motherboards that support a Free BIOS - LinuxBIOS

,----[ Quote ]
| You can help our campaign by buying AMD CPU chips and not buying Intel. AMD
| have been helpful but Intel needs to be persuaded. Likewise, buy motherboards
| that support free BIOS. Tyan Computer Corporation are very helpful to the
| LinuxBIOS project and employ a full-time LinuxBIOS developer.


Could AMD move open desktop Linux market?

,----[ Quote ]
| AMD recent move to fully support open source graphics could be the best
| news desktop Linux has had in a long time.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
