[Bf-committers] Fwd: ATI 3D cards

Hi all,

ATI dev support will send me:

> 1- RADEON 9800 XT 256MB AGP
> 1- RADEON 9700 PRO 128MB AGP
> 1- RADEON 9600 XT 128MB AGP

This because I was bothering them with the bad results ATI cards give  
with Blender recently, especially regarding their latest drivers.
My idea is, that when active developers here use ATI (as well) we might  
get insight in:

- what exactly goes wrong
- if it's possible to code a bypass
- if it's possible to tweak settings for the drivers to make it run  
smooth, to add to our support section.

Developers here feeling competent for such testing, and/or developers  
with urgent need for a new 3D card can contact me. I'll ship them the  
card for free. :)
