AMD announced on Sept 7 a major strategic change in open-source graphic processors support. It announced it would provide open-source information and a development package supporting the ATI RadeonHD 2000 series ATI Radeon X1000 series of graphics processing units on Linux desktops.
As part of opening up the ATI drivers, AMD consulted with leading members of the open-source community and the X.Org community to ensure that the driver addressed the needs of both open-source developers and Linux users.
