    Does this answer your question? : Pega2-2GB-RadeonHD.png

    Made with an earlier beta, but the final works as well. 3.10 improved the support, so the card is now initialized properly without the OF, and works in a Pegasos II, or Efika. It didn't work with 3.8 or 3.9 at least. I still cannot wholeheartedly recommend it over an R9800 or 9200 though, for the aforementioned reasons.

    Please, are there some benchmarks to compare Radeon9800 and HD4xxx ?
    For example SDLBench and MPlayer. And please, is it PCI card?
    Or some new ideas about best card for Pegasos2?

    Just now I overclocked my Pegasos 2 to 1.33GHz and want also upgraded graphics. I take Radeom 9800Pro and wil try overclocking. But maybe HD4xxx will be better choice.

    That is an accomplishment, but I think I would have just looked for a universally keyed R360 based card. At least you'd have 3D support. Although with the R700, you do still get overlay support. I don't play a lot of games, so 3D is less important.

    And if Mark follows his progressive evolution path, the R600 and the R700 cards would be the most likely to receive 3D support first.
    Personally, I'd like to see 3D support for higher end cards.

    But the cards supported by Warp3D Nova, Radeon HD 77xx-79xx series graphics card (excluding the Radeon HD 7790), Radeon HD R7 240/240D, Radeon HD R7 250, Radeon HD R7 250E, Radeon HD 250X/265, and the Radeon HD R9 270/270X/280/280X are all getting king of dated.

    Jumping to Radeon RX, Vega, or Navi would at least give us up to date gpus.

    Although...I did like the Radeon HD 7850/7870. I sent one to Mark, but its not on the compatibility list (its a GCN card, we aren't up to those yet). GCN gen 1 and gen 2 would give us a lot of compatibility with OS4.
