One could even draw lines from ATI's red to red being synonymous with communism which is synonymous with linux :O
The ATI picture before 8.41 would have meant "I look pretty but this bike doesn't have a fuel tank"
If you ask me, NVIDIA's Nalu is still better than ATI's Ruby. Though at least Ruby is an open-source girl
Shame on you
Did no one compare the image quality of these two? What do you think why I have chosen THIS ATI picture? To show you the improved image quality (what else did you think?) over the nVidia quality. And to demonstrate the performance, too, if you look carefully on what the ATI babe ehm the rendered Ruby sits.
I know at least nVidia uses OpenGL on many of their tech demos (I'm not so sure about AMD-ATI). Most prominently I remember the demos for NV15-20 (the marching toys demo and the Werewolf demo, dunno if the Squid demo was in OpenGL) were in OpenGL. I believe the Nalu and Dawn/Dusk demos were Direct3D, though, showcasing Shader Model 3.0 and 2.0 technology (respectively), but then again, I could be wrong.
I don't know if the Humus Demos available for Linux could be considered official ATI tech demos for Linux, since he has been working for ATI (or at least I believe so) for some now... Hopefully AMD still employs him.
Seems he left AMD on 03-Sept... To develop games... How interesting.
Hahaha!! Just tried to run the Glow demo from Humus on my nVidia setup and got this:
The following required OpenGL extensions are supported:
Too bad, these required OpenGL extensions aren't supported by the graphic card and driver you're using:
This application will now exit.
Gave a good laugh! Seems that after all, you can still do some "localized" demos in OpenGL for Linux for a particular hardware platform! Nice!
