Since January of this year we have been telling you that AMD
has been silently working on R600 (Radeon HD 2000) support for their
proprietary Linux "fglrx" driver. However, for the end-user the support
isn't complete and still equates to being useless. But how does the
recently announced Avivo R500 driver function with the newer R600
series? We have tried out an RV610 GPU in several configurations under
Linux, and in this article we will tell you what works and what doesn't
right now for the Radeon HD 2000 series.
