But it's great that Warp3D is finally getting some love. Will the OS3.x version also get some updates?

I have a 9200 on my Mediator which would like some support too.

I've got a 9250 with 256MB in my 1200T waiting for a very long time for proper Warp3d;)

Extremely long time, and no answer about my poor Peg2. The question always gets a side stepped or ignored.

If they can provide support for classic they must be able to provide support for 9200/9800 on my peg2 under OS4.1.

@Lurch

the revision of open firmware used by the pegasos2 is unable to correct initialize radeonHD video cards, even using a PCIe-to-PCI adapter. so no radeonHD in the future for us unless someone convinced the bplan guys to help out.

Yep I know that, but that's not what I am asking. If they can support a 9200 on classic they must be able to do the same on the Peg2 with the 9800pro.

The 9800pro would be the fastest card for the Peg2.

But if the firmware could be upgraded I'd be a happy man :-)  Might just sell it, it doesn't get used at all at the moment and I can't see myself spending $1000's on X3500 etc. The Sam boards don't seem to be a real option either performance wise so meh.

This is an A-EON Technology commissioned project.  The brief was given to Hans de Ruiter to develop a 3D driver for the Southern Islands cards.

A-EON has also paid for second driver for Evergreen cards which cover the 5000 and 6000 series.  This is still in development.


Considering I only have a 6800 in my Amiga, I look forward to this eventuating.

Yeah, I bought and downloaded the Warp3D to go with the updated RadeonHD drivers a while back, but could not find the time to locate a single slot Radeon board that had the correct chip set (http://hdrlab.org.nz/projects/amiga-os-4-projects/radeonhd-driver/radeonhd-driver-hardware-compatibility/).

Finally I just ordered one on the list (VisionTek 7750) for an average price, received it today, plugged it in and booted my A1 X1000 into OS4.1 FE; as is not typical, I did nothing more and fired up QuakeII in miniGL mode and BOOM!  Which is to say it worked beautifully.  No need for changes in monitor setting, nothing else; it just works "out of the box."  Crazy, right?

I took a chance on a pair of these a year ago.Would not work with my Sam440ep-flex and my Sam460ex was broken. Once My Sam460ex was replaced months later I was happy to find out that the cards worked.
I put them in storage and used a HD6670 on the Sam460ex as I expected to see Wardp3d support for the HD6670 first.So I was happy at the Warp3d-SI announcement.:)

I have a dumb question. If I buy this high end graphics card, for an X1000 Amiga, just what games are supported that make all this worthwhile?
Maybe you can tell I still use Motorola CPUed Amigas.

Better question: What makes any game worthwhile?

Actually for an X1000 or even an A1-500/Sam460ex with the Warps3D-SI driver a RadeonHD 7750 would be considered low end for 3D.When the Warp3D-NI (or whatever it will be called) driver is released then a Radeon HD5450 will be considerd low end for 3D on these machines .

Well, my criteria was a single slot board with a supported chip, so I agree it is low end, but everything in MY research with more oomph took up 2 slots.  Needless to say I didn't burden the forums with questions Google could answer.

But, do any games exist to take advantage of it?

In Amiga OS 4.1 terms yes.
The Games that work with the older Amiga OS 4.1 machines and Radeon 7000 series and Radeon 9000 series cards and Warp3D now work on the newer machines with the Radeon HD 2D and 3D drivers with the supported Radeon HD SI cards. previously you had to use a Radeon 9200 series pci card in your X1000 for hardware 3D support.The results with the PCI card were not the best .
