AMD64 driver updates ?
I have a couple of new AMD Opteron systems that I am trying to use the PCI version of the FX5200 cards in. The AMD64 driver version is 1.0-4180 and doesn't support the newer cards. Is there any date to get the newer driver out for the AMD64 kernel ? I am trying to get a dual head PCI card going in an dual processor Opteron motherboard. The older MX 420 PCI card are getting hard to find...

Worst Case...
Worst case is september when the Athlon64 comes out... I would *think* (read speculate) that we will see a new driver revision before then...

Worst case is not that bad however, unless this is a production workstation, then you might have some trouble...

What mobo are you using nforce3 pro? I ask b/c I am jonesin' for the single Opt nforce3 with an agp slot... add a 5600/5900 and that would be heaven!

I have got an anxious user who is pressing to get an 8GB workstation with 3D graphics immediately. I have a Rioworks dual-cpu server motherboard stuffed into a PC case, and am trying to get the best PCI based graphics card that I can, since the server boards don't have an AGP slot. I have a volume visualization application that requires large memory access, and the price/performance of the linux/nvidia box blows away the Sun and SGI workstations. They really don't want to keep buying 25-35 thousand dollar workstations, when we can get better performance for 5-8 thousand....

any time soon?
The previous messages said the new driver would be out worst case in september. It is now september 12th and there is still no new driver. I have an order I'm working on for my company for a dual opteron w/ an nvidia fx 5600 agp card (in an arima hdamb mobo). The current driver (4180) does not work with this card. Any updated timeframe as to when it will be available?
