    Phoronix: OpenGL 3.0 Now Handled For All Of R600 Gallium3D

    Marek Olk has continued with his "R600g" driver hacking. The latest patch-set coming from this prolific independent contributor to Mesa allows for anti-aliasing and transform feedback for Radeon HD 6900 "Cayman" GPUs...

            Huh, r600g covers the 5000-6000 range as well? Well, that's good to know. Though the fact that the driver name is based on the first generation is kind of eh.

              Yeah, we discussed various naming options, but the bottom line was that when a new driver component is started we know the name of the first generation it will support but rarely know the name of the last generation... so r600g (src/gallium/drivers/r600 IIRC) covers r6xx through NI and radeonsi covers SI through <who knows ?>...

                AMD should pay Marek Olk

                AMD should pay Marek Olk or send him a graphics card and a thanks letter or something.

                The guy is single handedly responsible for bringing AMD a lot of customers.
                All AMD customers who use Linux are thankful for his great contributions!

                  I am pretty sure you know

                  And yes the naming is as confusing as the Porsche 911 range naming. Or maybe more

                    Give him a donate button and you'll be surprised how many people will donate.
