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.

An Everyday Linux User Review Of Zorin 12

This version of Zorin is a great step forward. It has a renewed sense of purpose and stands out in its own right as a decent Linux distribution. I think Zorin should follow Mint's lead and stick with aligning itself to the Ubuntu LTS release. This gives the developers more time to push it along at their own pace. All in all a decent alternative to Linux Mint and Ubuntu. Read more
