[Phoronix] xf86-video-ati 6.12.0 Driver With R600/700 Support

The xf86-video-ati 6.11 driver was released less than a month ago, but coming out today is now the xf86-video-ati 6.12.0 release. What this release brings is most notably EXA and X-Video support for the ATI R600 and R700 generations of graphics processor...


This driver is the one that will be available for Ubuntu Jaunty and probably on most of the upcoming distro revisions. No 3D yet, but EXA (fast 2D acceleration) an usable Xv (accelerated video playback); this applies to every single r600 and r700 card currently out. Older cards already enjoy both 2D and 3D with both OSS drivers (latest builds).
