    Phoronix: Mesa 7.11 Release Candidate 1 Arrives

    While this is non-news for many Phoronix readers that are Mesa Git followers and already onto tracking Mesa 7.12-devel after using Mesa 7.11-devel for months already, for everyone else, the first release candidate of Mesa 7.11 is now available...

    This should be a great release, a lot has been done since 7.10.

      Completely working power management and I'd switch to the open source stack in a heartbeat. Video acceleration would be the only thing I would really miss then, but my desktop's CPU is fast enough anyway (AMD Phenom II X4 940) and I don't watch HD videos on my notebook (AMD Fusion E-350).

        It will be great to see some optimizations for r300g, because even Open Arena is hardly playable.

          r300g is comparable to Catalyst in performance now.

          Has been for quite a while.

            Well, in the last benchmark Michael did, r300g had ~70% the speed of the blob.

              There are indeed new r300g optimizations in 7.11. From the top of my head:
              - faster vertex uploads (also on r600g)
              - new optimized winsys that completely bypasses (doesn't use) libdrm_radeon
              - new fragment shader register allocator

                  Then I wonder why it sucks so much on my box?

                    Thanks. I will check this out when 7.11 will get into Arch stable repo.
