Subject: ATI 8500 or matrox 550?


Owing to the need of purchasing a supported video-card before it's too late
for my 4.6.2, I would like to know if the X Window System driver can run
fine or not the ATI 8500. I have noticed the driver is not listed in the
'sysinstall' tool. If I choose 'ati' using xf86config or editing
/etc/X11/XF86Config, would the card work as well as a Matrox 550 one?

You would actually want the radeon driver, not the ati one.


I've never personally used one, but it seems like it ought to work.


Should do 2D fine. The latest Radeon I recall seeing 3D acceleration for in X is the 7500, so the OP may have to wait a bit for 3D to happen.
