"With Ubuntu 9.04, the out-of-the-box ATI experience is great with the R100 through R500 series, complete with 3D support. Ubuntu 9.04 also has X-Video and EXA support for the ATI R600 (Radeon HD 2000/3000) and R700 (Radeon HD 4000) series through a recently-updated DDX driver and updated kernel DRM. While Intel's open-source driver has picked up DRI2 support, kernel memory management (via the Graphics Execution Manager), and numerous other improvements as of late, none of these features can be found in Jaunty's open-source ATI stack since they are still very much under development.
