Genesi: Open Desktop Workstation Certified By ATI
Posted by: gunne on Wednesday, August 02, 2006 - 09:38
Submitted by ironfist
The Open Desktop Workstation has finally been certified by ATI. As you can see the list is very short. The ODW is the first computer system to be certified.

The Genesi Smart Firmware is what makes all this happen. It contains a x86 video BIOS emulation that lets you use normal off-the-shelves graphics adapters instead of purchasing the same with PowerPC firmware for a whole lot more.
