AMD Radeon HD 4290 On Linux

Filed under
Hardware

Last week we delivered benchmarks of the AMD Athlon II X3 425 processor running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS while this week we are continuing in benchmarks from this triple-core budget processor as we try out its gaming performance when paired with an AMD 890GX motherboard boasting integrated Radeon HD 4290 graphics.

The ATI Radeon HD 4290 is AMD's newest integrated graphics processor that was introduced two months ago and it supports up to OpenGL 3.3, the core runs at a 700MHz clock, DirectX 10.1, 40 shader processors, UVD2, Hybrid CrossFire X, dual video streams, and supports DisplayPort / HDMI / DVI / D-Sub connections. While the IGP carried the RS880D codename, it is not an R800 / Evergreen derived IGP but is based upon their older but still excellent R700 generation. The AMD 890GX Chipset where the Radeon HD 4290 integrated graphics can be found on newer AM2+ / DDR2 and AM3 / DDR3 motherboards. Aside from boasting AMD's newest integrated graphics capabilities, the 55nm built 890GX can also provide up to 14 USB 2.0 ports, Serial ATA 6GB/s (when used with a SB850 Southbridge), PCI Express 2.0, and will work with AMD Phenom II / Athlon II / Phenom / Athlon processors. There is also the AMD 880G chipset with the same Radeon HD 4290 graphics core but it is running at a lower (500MHz) clock speed.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
