    Phoronix: Radeon Gallium3D Now Does MSAA On R600

    Thanks to the great work of Marek Olšák, the prolific independent contributor to Mesa/Gallium3D that is still at university, AMD Radeon HD 2000/3000 "R600" hardware now has MSAA (anti-aliasing) support from the open-source Linux graphics driver...

    I hope i am not the only one that gets a headache with all the different naming in the ATI range (r600, cayman evergree hd 7000 etc etc)

    Anyway props to Marek and airlied that also worked on MSAA i think.





    PS
    I hope that AMD understands that one of the reasons that people suggest AMD for those who want FOSS drivers is Marek.

      I hope AMD has already offered Marek a job

      It's not just that he's getting a boatload of work done, but it's good solid work. The article says:

      I hope he has a job at AMD in a year, or two, or whenever his studies are complete.

      AMD would be fools not to.

          YAAAAY!!!

          Any chance this MSAA work can be applied to r300g? It's one of the last
          features that the AMD Catalyst drivers from 2007 have that the r300g drivers don't.

          I'm sure a lot of people on laptops are going to be very thankful for this work. Myself included if it makes it to r300g.

          I agree, AMD should hire this guy... Or at the very least, pay for his tuition.

          AMD picked up that developer from Stanford that was working on the GPGPU acceleration for Folding@home, so I don't see why they wouldn't be trying to hire Marek as I'm sure Marek has made bigger contributions to AMD than that already.

          Cheers.

            I'm pretty sure it's been reported here

            that Marek was offered a job by AMD, but he turned them down to stay at university.

            Hopefully they'll offer again when he graduates.

              Wasn't that about Valve and not AMD?

                Of course Mr Olšák does a wonderful job, but other devs too. Marek's works is "just" the tip of the iceberg
