hansSam460 users, please do NOT buy a Sapphire Radeon HD 4350 PC20110227 21:24
For those who missed it, it has been discovered that the Sapphire Radeon HD 4350 is actually a Mobility Radeon M92 (a Mobility Radeon HD 4300 series card), and that it currently doesn't work with the RadeonHD driver. Seeing as there are now two people with this card...

I have updated the compatibility list to reflect that this card is not working. I will fix this problem, but for the time being, Sam460ex users, please do NOT get this specific card.

Hans

EDIT: I have found and fixed the problem, so these cards will work with future versions of the driver. In addition, I have also discovered that the publicly released driver also doesn't initialise the GPUs on RV740 (Radeon HD 4770) and RV790 (Radeon HD 4890) chipsets. I highly doubt that people will buy these, as they will block the PCI slot. However, you have been warned.

Out of topic.

But, will the new Radeon drivers be made available to 440 users at some point?

Thanks

Yes, they will eventually be available to all hardware.

Thanks, it's a great news.

So, I'm searching for a PCI version right now.

I should point out that I don't know when it will be available on the 440. There are some performance issues with that hardware, and it will require an update to more than the RadeonHD driver to fix. I'm still recommending that people wait until the driver is actually available.

@all

While fixing the problem with this particular model, I have also discovered that RV740 (Radeon HD 4770) and RV790 (Radeon HD 4890) chipsets are not handled properly either. While I don't expect anyone to get one of these for their Sam460ex (too fat, so they block the PCI slot), you have been warned. Future versions of the driver will have no trouble with these cards, but avoid them for now.
