ATI-tuning


Hi there!

I found a lot of threads about problems or how to install ATI drivers.

My experiences are quite good; drivers were working on 2nd try. To be honest... try nr. 1 was without reading much :-) So I guess I am on the lucky side of ATI-users ...

I have the ATI Radeon 9000 mobility. And it's onboard in my laptop (Amiloa A). Ok, that's all I know about the card. And I don't know very mcuh about 3d-cards in general.

While intsalling and reading about it I always came across some hints about tuning ATI ... but never more than: "use this to fine tune your settings" or smiliar. .. bah ... how could that help me?

Can someone give me some hints on what is always a good idea in tuning the settings ... or where I can get real information and explanations to that ... more than just trying to find something that might help from www.ati.com.

Thanks a lot,
Sascha

the only ones i can suggest are these. you may or may not have these already. i tried running a search for xf86config radeon tweaks and xfree86 radeon tweaks but i can't find the site i ran across several months back that explained alot of the options for radeons and xf86. honestly tho, there wasn't a whole lot that i could do that i hadn't already done to my XF86Config file.

Thanks so far... I'll compare that to mine .. although I use xorg ... I think it should work.
Will be reporting.

Anyone else? :-)

xorg is basically a fork of xfree86. it was started because of xfree86's licensing change(non-GPL or something). so Xorg forked off and continued a GPL version of xwindows.

i believe those options should work tho. however, for all i know they may not cause i haven't taken the time to tinker w/ xorg. lemme know how it works out for ya.
