AMD Catalyst 8.5 For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The most interesting developments with this driver release are improved 2D
| performance and Catalyst AI, but Dynamic Kernel Module Support also goes a
| way into improving the installation experience for this proprietary driver
| and the Linux 2.6.25 support is needed for some of the newer Linux
| distributions.

Open graphics card available for preorder

,----[ Quote ]
| The Open Graphics Project has started accepting preorders for their OGD1, a
| graphics card with a completely open source design. This initial release is
| billed as a high-end FPGA prototyping kit specifically designed to test
| computer graphics architectures. The card has two DVI connectors, S-Video,
| 256MB RAM, and a 64bit PCI-X connector. The core of the system is a Xilinx
| Spartan-3 XC3S4000 FPGA. A nonvolatile Lattice XP10 FPGA is used to bootstrap
| the Xilinx at power up. Here's the layout of the specific components.

Project VGA Hopes To Ship Next Month

,----[ Quote ]
| Michael Meeuwisse of Project VGA, which spawned from the Open Graphics
| Project for creating a truly open-source graphics card, announced today at
| FOSDEM 2008 that next month he hopes to ship the first of his prototype
| graphics cards. However, before you get your hopes up, this is a very low-end *
| graphics card. The current Project VGA board has 16MB of SD RAM, Xilinx
| Spartan 3 s400 FPGA under 100MHz, and uses the PCI bus. * *

| The OGP grew rapidly after I first started it, and it's continued to
| grow gradually since then. Now, we have Traversal Technology and also
| the Open Hardware Foundation that's dedicated to the non-profit,
