Good ATI HD news

I have finaly figured out why newer FrameBuffer drivers doesn’t work at all, reason is PowerPlay and powermanagement, disabling it makes newer framebuffer works.

Good news, fixed ATY_Triakis, now, with it, DVI and Dual monitors finaly works for 2600 cards !

also, that’s hope for 3870/3850 cards, testing in progress, stay tunned

    pkg now is in #radeonhd topic, test it with other cards (2600 only tested yet). It has special natit, which makes OSX to use Triakis with any RadeonHD card

    Wow, my RadeonHD 2600Pro (512MB) is finally working in Leopard (10.5.1). But I still get white menus everywhere. When I click on them they are white/blank and when I click again the menu disappears and you can see the text for about 1 sec…

    When I install the driver package and do a reboot I get a fuzzy screen. Sometimes I see a mouse cursor, but usually everything is just flickering.

    Hi guys.
    Thanks for the info.
    My HD2600 Pro is working with DVI now.
    But there is some problem.
    When watching youtube movie, the movie will only play for 2 secs and then stop.
    When watching quicktime movie, quicktime react very slowly.
    The DVD player is not working.

    Do you guys have such problems?

    P.S. I tried installing other drivers, now the display driver is messed, booted into safe mode.
    Any suggestion on uninstall the driver then reinstall?

    Thank you in advance for help.
