ATi & Linux: Video Acceleration?


Distinguished Member

does anyone know if the current ATi drivers provide the same video acceleration functionality (and performance) under linux as they do under nvidia? I currently have an nvidia card which does xvmc acceleration only (mp2 basically).

The ATi site seems slightly vague on this point

ATi driver faq said:
The ATI Proprietary Linux driver currently provides hardware acceleration for 3D graphics and video playback

which isn't exactly a detailed response :rolleyes:
