Radeon HD6970 (Cayman XT)

Postby xeno74 » Tue Nov 05, 2019 4:14 pm

I have bought a Radeon HD6970 (Cayman XT). :-) I successfully tested it with ubuntu MATE 16.04.6 LTS PowerPC and with Fedora 27 PPC64 today and the hardware 3D acceleration works great on both distributions. :-) The Cayman cards are the fastest and last released Radeon cards with support for hardware 3D acceleration on Linux PPC Big Endian. New cards are working but without hardware 3D acceleration.

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

Hi All,

I have bought another Radeon HD6970 (Cayman XT). :-) This time for the X1000. I successfully tested it with ubuntu MATE 16.04.6 LTS PowerPC and with Fienix today and the hardware 3D acceleration works great on both distributions. :-) The Cayman cards are the fastest and last released Radeon cards with support for hardware 3D acceleration on Linux PPC Big Endian. New cards are working but without hardware 3D acceleration.
