    Phoronix: AMD R600 Gallium3D Driver Patch For AF

    Submitted to the mailing list over the weekend was a patch by Carl-Philip Haensch that implements support for Anisotropic Filtering (AF) in the ATI/AMD R600 Gallium3D driver...

      The control panel is the game that wants to use it

        And what if I want to force AF for compiz cube, like I'm doing right now with fglrx ? Or what if the game does not have an option for anisotropic filtering ?

        Not having a proper control panel is just a bad idea (imho).

          Yet, somehow I didn't find it odd when R300/R600 split happened.
          Because it was just about implementing stuff that wasn't available for R300's.

            I thought that the control panel was "driconf"?

            I don't know if this particular option is in there, but that's what Mesa drivers use.

              Hmm, looks like the patch is only for the older chips, i.e., pre-Evergreen. But nice to have anyway.

                Now it also works for Evergreen. Jerome Glisse just committed it to Git:

                And the commit for older GPUs:

                  Great. I just tried it with Unigine Heaven, and it works. Cool

                    What are you talking about? AF is supported since r100.

                      sure?? normal users just don't care...

                      AF just should be activated by default.

                      if someone want ugly graphic he can turn it of by hand.

                        The graphics is not always ugly. Sometimes AF may not necessarily improve visual quality, but it may cost quite a lot of performance. Only apps should determine when it *can* be used, not users.

                          sure,,, but your point does not make an control panel a must have.-

                            Guess my sarcasm was rather subtle
                            I'm just saying that r300 generation was first left in the dust by Catalyst,
                            so that it could be left in the dust by xf86-video-ati afterwards. But r300
                            r600 split was not a surprise for me, because i expected it. Call it a hunch.

                              Or not.
                              The wording of the article made me believe that a feature
                              was added to R600g that somehow wasn't available on R300g.
                              My bad
