    You might add a
    - Club 3D Radeon 7000 64 MB AGP (just perfect)
    and a
    - Pine SiS 305 32MB AGP low profile (works fairly but has issues with resolutions higher than 1024 * 768 at least on a Peg1/April1)

    @Milky 060

    I have no doubt that the radeon 9100 can handle a screenmode of
    1600x1200@100Hz but my 21" phillips brilliance can not handle the
    100Hz.

    Horizontal = 72Hz
    vertical = 58Hz
    This screen is flikkering and gets me an headeck

    so my problem is the monitor so i guess the 1280x1024@82Hz is also a
    beautiful screen to watch.

    but thanx for the help.....

    I would be more interested in getting MOS1.5, because my Radeon 9000 is working very good so I don't need any Nvidia card ;-)

    Should users really be encouraged to get nVidia cards? 3D won't work in either MorphOS nor GNU/Linux and nVidia is even more uptight when it comes to drivers specs than ATI.

    David, we are not encouraging users to get cards (yet). We have a serious request to get them working with the platform and we were just trying to see what the interest level is out in Pegasosland.

    I think it's better for now to focus on Ati & Voodoo because we all
    use an Ati or Voodoo card. Dazzle us with good (3D) drivers for those
    cards and once that's working perfect go work on drivers for other
    brands.

    I don't want to get in a hypothetical situation that we have great
    drivers for Nvidia and that there's possibillity that the drivers for
    Ati still don't support 3D. Which could mean that we are forced to buy
    another card if we want to use 3D in MorphOS.

    Would it be inappropriate to respond to this thread that I have a
    Radeon 7000 AGP for sale? It is a "low-profile" type with DVI, Analog
    & composite video output.

    Hi Toto, it would be great if life and business were so simple. We have been in discussions at the level of Group Senior VP at ATI. They have promised support and enrolled us in the Developer Program, but we are just not important enough to them -- yet. Here is an example:

    Quote:

    From a software perspective, we are unable to provide direct assistance. We see that you have a bright future ahead, but it is simply a matter of resources. I'm willing to have one of my team take a look at providing other data, although I can't provide any guarantees.


    Later, we responded...

    Quote:

    The closed source driver is only available for x86 so we can only use the open source Linux driver on our PowerPC based platform or am I missing something?


    ...and after ALL the discussion and statements of support they concluded with this:

    Quote:

    You are correct. Therefore the open-source driver is your best option. Please evaluate this performance.


    Genesi/bplan is still a small, small player. We just re-initiated the conversations with ATI this past week, but it is not so easy.

    In the meanwhile, we have had a customer request to support nVidia. This is a BIG customer and one that commands respect from nVidia, the Company. That is what we need to press ahead. We need access to an nVidia (or ATI) "blackbox" library and API specification, so that we can access the graphics card without documentation on the GPU specifics. This driver technology should be able to be shared between all OSs running on the platform. We will need the latest compiled lib/binary for PPC, so we can insert this into our framework. And, our course have the support available as needed moving ahead is always required as we introduce new CPU cards with the platform.

    We are pushing at every angle, but getting the recognition we need in the market place takes more than just us knocking on the door of companies like ATI and nVidia. First, you have to demonstrate you have the capacity to stay in business, then you have to have a unique value proposition and finally you have to provide a market opportunity for THEM and THIER sales. In the case of Genesi/bplan we have something special, but it takes a long time to get that recognition and credibility. This requires many discussions, meetings and weeks/months of constant effort. We have no intention of slowing down, but try to keep that all in mind. :-)

    One thing that does help is the kind of user and developer support the platform has. MorphOS and even Linux for the Pegasos has a community of solid citizens who have demonstrated over the last two years what a valuable resource they are. The Resellers, the User Groups, individual developers and contributors (thanks again for the review Fulvio!) and small groups of people like the Image Installer Team (there would be no solid Linux support for the platform without them) is one of the characteristics that make the platform so attractive to big organizations. They can understand the opportunity more easily when they see this kind of activity and support. We have alot of people to thank. :-) We have tried to do this by keeping you (all) informed and keeping you (all or any many as we can) involved in the effort.

    We are certainly making serious progress. We shipped a large amount of Open Desktop Workstations this week. We know lots of people are waiting for boards. They are coming as is MorphOS 1.5. We still have a few things to clear up, but we are getting there.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Raquel and Bill :-)

    Thanks for the information. I understand that big companies like ATI or Nvidia don't want to provide support to smaller companies and it shows that it's not as simple as I thought. I've nothing against adding support for Nvidia or any other cards (the more hardware get's supported the better ;-)) as long as it doesn't get in the way of development for the current supported hardware.

    It's nice to hear that MOS 1.5 is coming along, keep up the good work. :-)

    Out of interest how was the NVidia driver for AROS written? I know it's only 2D, but sounds pretty slick (I've only tried AROS on a Radeon 128 Mobility 16Mb).

    Looks like the 9200 is the best readily available card ATM though - as a prospective buyer that is ;-)

    I've tried a Club3D Radeon 7500 with 32MB of ram and DVI and VGA output without luck... I'll try to modify the envarc variable to use the DVI connector with an adapter but the vga output didn't seem to work...

    The card works flawlessly on peecees :-/

    I recently tried out a Sapphire 9100 Atlantis - 64 MB and it crash when Ambient is loaded and move the mouse.

    Then I tested a Sapphire 9200SE Atlantis 128 MB and this works flawlessy.

    All tested on a peg1 - aprilfix2

    @ bbrv

    When it is possible for Genesi and ATI to do so, I would like to see support for ATI's All-In-Wonder cards, or the TV/HDTV Wonder cards. That would be so nice... :-)

    Sounds like things are going well with MorphOS 1.5 - keep up the wonderful work!

    @James

    Nvidia support is OK, but I think that actually their products are like x86 in some form; very hot and power consuming. ATI seems better about this, but is having prolems about linux support, could be nice when they solve this issue.

    @bbrv

    We will can have 3D and even better 2D support for most ATI radeon cards even high end ones? In MorphOS and linux of course...
