I see. What I am wondering about is why do graphics card drivers require this amount of manpower? Is it the hardware or the API? How is it possible to write driver code that could be more than ten times faster? Or is it that the hardware doesn't map to the exposed API(OpenGL) and requires complex translation? Sorry if the questions sound silly, I've never worked with bare hardware.
No announcement yet.
