Kudos to AMD – ATI GPU Specs Released

Kudos to AMD for following through on an earlier promise to release GPU specs. The specs are now publicly available, without the need for an NDA. The RV630 Register Reference Guide and M56 Register Reference Guide represent almost 900 pages of 2D specs. 3D specs and specs for other chips should be coming soon. Awesome. We’ll see if this has any impact on sales for ATI cards. It will be interesting to watch the Linux driver mature and also see what, if any, impact this has on whether nVidia will release any specs.

    I am hopeful that they will take this backwards a bit as well, so that perhaps the R350 chipset will be a bit easier to figure out as well. Perhaps then my Radeon 9550 won’t freeze up every other x.org update.
