Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"The first 3D graphics support for Linux laptops has been announced by Xi Graphics Inc. (www.xig.com). The Denver-based company has extended its OpenGL Compliant 3D Linux Graphics Drivers (LGDs) product line to include new laptop models that have 3D-capable graphics hardware."

"This is the first 3D support for laptops running Linux to our knowledge," said Lee Roder, Xi Graphics' sales manager. "Recent advances in graphics hardware, video memory and CPU speed mean that some laptops are now rivaling desktop performance. In particular, the Linux Graphics Driver for the IBM ThinkPad A20p with 700 MHz speed and the ATI Rage Mobility 128 graphics chip with 16 MB of RAM is really impressive."

"In January, Xi Graphics announced a new Web-based product line of 3D graphics hardware drivers for desktop Linux. The initial laptop driver release includes three models from two manufacturers: the Toshiba Tecra 8100, the Toshiba Satellite Pro 4260 and the IBM ThinkPad A20p."
