    Phoronix: Is AMD Open-Sourcing Something Next Week?

    Some Linux users seem to think that next week, Advanced Micro Devices will be open-sourcing -- something -- relating to their graphics stack. Firmware? ATI Avivo? OpenCL / Stream work? UVD unit specifications?..

      Here I thought they were the same. Well, two drops > one.

        Somebody might have said something is going to happen somewhere at some point in time. Great story.

        Well... Somebody might have said a story might be great. No idea if it's this one.

            Hah, now Qaridarium's random musings end up being articles? This just keeps getting better and better.

              Well there is something coming (though not necessarily from AMD). And it's a slow news weekend with most people on holidays in the US and UK.

                Please don't generate "news" for the sake of generating news.

                  Q has been quite correct with the catalyst drivers in the past, and with regards to AMD he's usually fairly accurate. Of course he's not always correct; at least the information that he receives isn't always what pans out, but often enough it does.

                      I hope it is the shader compiler. They did just that with r300, right? Given the r600 hack, I would not be surprised, but let's see...

                      PS: Or is this documentation?

                        Yet again...

                        Michael proves that Phoronix is now nothing more then an open source tabloid... What next? Will we be hearing about Will we be reading about Linus' torrid love affair with a young Windows dev and a shetland pony?

                        Theres a reason people use adblock... see if you can piece out why...

                          Dude, it is a news item, not an article. It states rumor and it relates to our collective interest in technology. Nothing more. Nothing less.

                          The news item doesn't claim anything and Q has a fairly good track record.

                          If you don't pay, you have nothing to demand.

                              ATOM BIOS, clearing the last controversy in their opensource video driver? So a clean install of debian squeeze will run without the closed-free firmware bits?
