    Would this thread qualify as a failed Turing test ?

    Note : I'm not a native english speaker either, but I try to make sure to have at least partially sound sentence structures. And in fact, it must be even harder for me to parse those sentences than for those that speak english fluently.

    BTW, what is "praxis" ?
    sorry praxis=practice

    • Hello, since this thread is active, and I couldn't find bug report like this, I am posting it here. Using following configuration:
      Linux 2.6.32
      libgl 7.7
      xf86-video-ati 6.12.4
      libdrm 2.4.17

      I have following bugs, apart from inability to turn on KMS
      Using glxgears as benchmark..yes I know it is not really.
      In non compositing environment, when glxgears window origin is moved out of current desktop(left and up coordinates), rendering stops (shows last rendered frame, clipped with the window border of-course) frames go high ~4000 as of my hardware RS780.
      On the other hand, when the glxgears window is under other window, entirely, frames drop down to ~100.
      When simultaneously origin outside desktop and covered by window entirely FPS are ~100 too.

      In compositing environment, when moving window with GL context, window moves (content black), but GL rendering context stays(and continue to render) on the old place, above any windows. When I finish the move, then it moves in to GL window as usual. When the window origin is moved beyond desktop dimensions, window content stays black.

      Please if not appropriate here, tell me where I should post this issues.
      Thanks.

        It's actually quite funny when you're a native german speaker.
        He often slips german words into his sentences, e.g. praxis, tausend, ...

        Anyway, to move this thread to a slightly less off-topic topic:
        Has anyone had any luck yet with running a real-world >=OGL2 application (= game, obviously :P) on r300g? I keep trying to run HoN, Nexuiz, the Penny Arcade games and some others but so far without success.
        It does pass some of the piglit-tests though...
        I guess it's too early to fill bugreports yet, or isn't it?

          I'm so sorry abaut this.. idsn the future it will be faster intel only need OpenGL3.2.
          Intel is generally is very slow in 3D a 20€ hd4350 is 200-300% faster than your atom GPU...
          Yes, but you forgot to quote the rest of my sentence, which said that these games are also slower on my Core2/Quadro notebook. This Quadro card supports OpenGL 3.2, so if what you said was true, it should be faster through wine than native. It isn't, however.

          I don't doubt that wine can give a speed increase in some rare cases, but this speed increase either happens on software that doesn't really need it (WOW is 5 years old now? 3d mark 03 is 6 years old?) or on hardware that doesn't have a problem anyway (e.g. DX10/GL3.2 cards running DX8 software).

          One final nitpick: WOW minimaps use GL pbuffers, which are *not* windows specific. However, noone sane wants to deal with this ugly 6-year old POS extension, which is why OSS drivers won't get it anytime soon. This is why WOW/DX tends to run better than WOW/GL in wine.

          in the past AMD get foaming rabies by some Posts of me in this forum.
          Lol

            the tiny point is there is a real chance that in CAD software gamer-cards run faster in directX than on openGL.
            YOU stated that CAD software ran faster in DX on gamer cards than in GL, and stated it as a fact. I didn't have any information to prove or disprove it so said it was "possible", based on your prior statement. If you don't have any justification for that statement, you can't use my response as justification either.

            on the directX side M$ can bypass this and integrate optimizations in the dx-core
            One more time, we don't cut out extensions on the gaming drivers. The workload is different between workstation and gamer applications (workstation tends to be much more vertex-intensive, gaming tends to be fragment/pixel-intensive) and we optimize differently for those workloads. More specifically, if an optimization improves the way a workstation application runs but slows down or interferes with a game then there's no way that change could make it into the regular drivers but it *would* go into the workstation drivers.

            The other appeal of the workstation drivers is that the hardware/software combination is ISV-certified on a range of workstation applications, which is usually not possible for regular drivers.

            With respect, if you can't prove it in theory *or* in practice then you don't have a very strong argument. You really would be better off presenting it as a theory or a possibility, with a chance that someone else might provide additional information, than presenting it as a statement of fact and having people throw feces at you.

            • Keep up the great work, bridgman.
              Not enough appreciation going on around here.

              • Thanks, although the appreciation should keep going to the hands-on developers.

                I'm just here trying to prevent Crimes against Logic

                • Right, on behalf of the developers *cough*.

                      in the end the windows users use rivatuner to turn a radeon into a fireGL...

                      in the end everyone how buys a FirePRO/FireGL are a idiot!
