My own ATI card roundup

I didn't have time to fool with the test day for video, but I have
finally gotten around to checking out my personal collection
of ATI cards with latest fedora 13 updates, with these results:

RV410 [Radeon X700 Pro (PCIE)]

My main system uses an RV410 PCIE card. Lots of stuff works
fine on fedora 13 (in fact everything I actually use works
fine).  If I stress the card using the mesa-demos gltestperf
test, the whole system locks up and has to be power cycled.

This doesn't appear to have changed in f13, same thing happens
in f12.

Radeon R100 QD [Radeon 7200]

This is an insanely ancient card (an original ATI
All-In_Wonder).  Fedora 12 was the peak of performance for this
card. It actually worked a little. With Fedora 13, all I get is
a "No Signal" message from my monitor. (Which is all I got for
several releases prior to f12 as well :-).

RV280 [Radeon 9200] (rev 01)

I think I remember trying this with the live CD in f12 with
very little success. It works better in fedora 13. It can
handle KMS, it can handle turning on compiz, but it starts
going funny in the head when I push things a bit:
