The RadeonHD 2D graphics driver for AmigaOS is currently supplied as part of the Enhancer Software package.

The RadeonHD Lite graphics driver has been currently licenced to Hyperion Entertainment CVBA for inclusion on the AmigaOne X1000 and AmigaOne 500 versions of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition CD only. This version is intended for emergency boot and installation of the AmigaOS4.1 Final Edition CD and therefore is limited to 800x600 pixel screen resolution and compositing is not possible. For general day to day use, it is recommended to upgrade to the full RadeonHD driver in the Enhancer Software package.


The main features of the RadeonHD driver currently are:

  • Framebuffer
  • VGA and DVI output for all cards
  • Full 2D acceleration for supported RadeonHD graphics chipsets including compositing
  • Support for "R520" (X1300-X1950 series)
  • Support for "R700" (HD4000 series)
  • Support for "Evergreen" (HD5000 series)
  • Support for "Northern Islands" (HD6000 series)
  • Support for "Southern Islands" (selected HD7000, R7, R9 series)
  • Composited video (a variant of textured video) for accelerating video playback
  • Hardware mouse pointer
  • RadeonHD_RM.resource backend for 3D drivers (the render manager)
