Please test this gfxdriver update with RTG games or demos that have some "flickering" issues, as reported in some threads recentely.

This fix Strife 1.2, Wild Flying, and any programs that use Intuition->ChangeScreenBuffer() & related.

Consider it BETA!

It is beautiful to have new drivers for Amiga - grin -

I love saying new drivers and Amiga at the same sentence :D

Amazing how quickly this driver was developed and tested.  Makes one wonder what all the buffoonery is about in regard to missing NIC and audio drivers for OS4/X5000.  I realize the audio and NIC hardware on PPC systems is much newer and possibly not as well-documented as the video hardware on a classic Amiga, but it shouldn't takes years to get working audio and ethernet.  Something is terribly wrong in the OS4 world.

Anyway, great work!  It's this type of responsiveness that will draw people to the Vampire and hopefully keep them there.

YES! But with that 4,000 dollar USA to buy the x5000 and with consuming so much electric bill from your home and the weight and size and mass and space consumption of the hardware and booting OS 4.x all

TO RUN A CALCULATOR!

Isn't that worth owning an AmigaOS 4.x?

It is not like you can calculate with an Apple // or Commodore 64...no no no...you need that big beast to open a notepad and a calculator!!!

Congratulation for the AmigaOS 4.x world!!

That is the most expensive calculator I have ever seen anyone buy in their lifetime!!
