ATI readies big Linux driver push

ATI IS here in Cyprus to outline its recently announced X700 and Catalyst drivers.

Terry Makedon, a senior product manager, largely talked about those, but he did say the firm is readying a major push in the next few weeks to outline its plans for Linux driver support. He said that ATI has three main goals for Linux. He said that ATI supports Linux which represents around four per cent of the market, and that the firm's Linux efforts are proportional to the market.

He said that ATI had rebuilt its Linux driver team with a lot of new developers. He said ATI will improve its test process including automated test methodologies, lots of new ways of testing more efficiently. He said ATI's priority was to make PCIe Linux drivers ready as well as provide support for AMD64.
