  • Hmm nothing more I can say... what does qaridarium mean by the way?

    I got tropics demo running here with well... 34 fps
    I guess the new 9800gt will further sh** to its pants in unigine heaven when it comes out
    I think the performance will be much better with ET Quake Wars though. Till then take care.

    • FireGL cards do not work better with Linux for normal apps. The only thing different is that there are features enabled in the opengl stack then such a card is identified which is disabled for standard cards. Then apps like specviewperf run faster. So it is hard to believe that supporting standard cards was really hard to do - the chips have been always the same. Crossplattform apps like Maya will most likely never use D3D.

        I think I''m qualified to answer that. I used nVidia's blob and I *still* dual booted to Windows for games. Even with their support and WINE doing as best they can, it's still troublesome for many, many games which has nothing to do with the graphbics card at all.

        I did buy a HD 5850 for my "Wintendo" and to develop the OSS drivers on, because I hope to improve them. I bought AMD because they open sourced the specs, that's money in their pocket. Eventually I think I can move games from Windows to OSS-backed WINE, that's my gain. I don't need it to be a win-win for everyone, just for myself......

          i test it to:

          there is Water! ;-) 'no bug' shows to me!

          heaven need a DX11 (amd)card for fullfeatured ......

          realy? how care abaut that i always have 60+fps

            if you have a company... and you need 10 workstations...
            for exampel drop macos and drop linux brings you a hole money!

            10*(300(card)+100€(windows)) =4000€
            faster 5850/5870......

            for the same speed you need 2 pices of 4870 based fireGL cards...
            10*2*1500€ (linux here macos is much more expensiv)

            30000€

            drop Crossplattform apps brings the company 30000-4000=26000€!!!!
            and!,,, the DXD based CAD software is cheaper to!

            for an exampel http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroStation

            unix cad software moves to directX because of the cheaper hardware and saving money for the companies!

            second exampel:

            http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/AutoCAD

            "AutoCAD unterstützt seit Release 14 nur Microsoft Windows als Betriebssystem."

            thats mean 'autocad 14' only support windows ....... because openGL is dropet!

                  ok practice we bild a directX-workstation and a Professional OpenGL one!

                  have a look!

                  the directX one:

                  http://geizhals.at/a465649.html ASUS , Radeon HD 5870 339€
                  http://geizhals.at/a458478.html Windows 7 Professional 64Bit 115,97€
                  http://geizhals.at/a420753.html Autodesk: AutoCAD LT 2010 1139,13€

                  OpenGL one
                  http://geizhals.at/a386534.html ATI FirePro 3D V8700 736,10
                  http://geizhals.at/a386534.html ATI FirePro 3D V8700 736,10
                  (you need 2 of them for the same "shader" speed)
                  Catia V6 2009 6000€ und up+++


                  directX workstation: 1594€
                  OpenGL workstation: 7475€


                  you save 5878€ per workstation if you drop openGL.....

                  OpenGL RIP on the CAD market. . .

                  • Sorry Q, but I don't understand your point either.

                    Why are you specifying workstation cards for OpenGL but not for DirectX ? In both cases you either need the workstation optimizations (for best performance with huge models) or you don't... and if you *don't* need the optimizations etc... then you might as well use a consumer card for OpenGL as well.

                    AutoCAD has been Windows-only for fifteen years; we're not really talking about a current trend there.

                    EDIT - how did we end up having this discussion in the Open Source 6xx/7xx GLSL thread ?

                    • Yeah, AMD markets those expensive FirePro cards for both Windows/DirectX and Linux/OpenGL users. The 5870 works equally well under both API's as well. You get the same thing if you look at Nvidia's lineup of gamer vs professional cards.

                      Is this the heart of your argument about how AMD is trying to kill OpenGL? Cuz i never understood where that was coming from.
