    Hmm - the latest Linux version is 9.2. Guess I'll be doing without 3D acceleration on my laptop for a while longer, as that version has a bug in reading the Xorg version on the dev release of Ubuntu 9.04.

    AMD says there will be a Linux version of Catalyst 9.3 'coming soon', which will include a Linux version of the Catalyst Control Center - no idea when it'll be out, though.

    CCC is already on Linux. Very basic tho. ATI drivers for linux right now are terrible anyway and I don't see anything grand coming our way any time soon.

    Well, it can't be a bad thing, that they support Windows 7 this early. It's certainly better than having an OS that has no drivers for anything... again.

    In my experience, the Linux Catalyst drivers are quite good. They installed just fine in Fedora 10 and performance and stability are commendable.

    I wonder if this fixes the DX10/4000 series bug.

    will install tomorrow when i reboot and go into windows 7, although i've had no problems with the windows supplied drivers for my 2900xt. i agree, it is nice to see support this early for the new os!

    peace

    So with 9.2 every time I would start my computer the display driver would crash but, windows was able to restore it and everything was peachy until the next boot up. With 9.3 the display driver would crash but then it would BSOD. Every time I tried anything graphically demanding. I had to revert back to 9.2.....

    any one else with these issues?

    50% performance increase? This calls for a bit-tech test!
