Following our announcement that we have
secured the future of RadeonHD graphic drivers for AmigaOS 4 we are
pleased to reveal we have now made an agreement with ACube Systems
which will allow owners of new AmigaOne 500 and Sam460
systems access to the new RadeonHD drivers and future updates.
Registered owners of these new systems will be able to download free
RadeonHD driver updates from the A-EON Technology website as and when
then become available. Details of how to register will be made
available in the near future. Pre-existing AmigaOne 500 owners
will also benefit from this agreement. Pre-existing Sam460
owners will still be able to purchase the RadeonHD driver from the
A-EON Technology website. ACube's Max Tretene commented on the new
agreement, “We're all happy about the securing of the driver
development (for AmigaOS 4)”, while Trevor Dickinson added,
“Driver support for the latest RadeonHD graphics cards is a
massive achievement for AmigaOS 4 and I'm pleased that ACube's
customers can benefit from Hans de Ruiter's work. These are exciting
times for AmigaOS 4 users.”
We are also pleased to confirm that
Hans is making excellent progress with the RadeonHD driver as he
works towards the version 1.0 release. The latest version (0.46) has
just been uploaded to the AmigaONE X1000 beta test team for testing.
