ATI has updated their Displays control app. Displays 4.5.5 adds enhancements and bug fixes for the RADEON 9200. 4.5.5 also adds VERSAVISION display rotation for Mac minis running Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). VERSAVISION allows you to view your desktop the way you want, providing hardware accelerated display rotation and scaling.

Just wonderring is the Radeon 9200 in the Mac Mini more powerful than the Radeon Mobility 9200 in the iBook? Might be obvious but just asking anyway.

The Radeon 9200 in the Mac Mini is underclocked dramatically so as to run with minimal cooling.

The update also adds support for the Radeon X850XT to the ATI Displays Panel although it's not noted in the Read Me or update notes. Before, the Radeon X850XT wasn't recognized.

if nothing else, the VERSAVISION is funky to play with. especially when your 17" WS LCD doesn't actually rotate LOL!
