    Phoronix: Marek Does Major Rework Of Gallium3D Blitting

    The latest work by Marek Olk is a major rework to the way that blitting is handled by graphics drivers on the Gallium3D architecture...

    I really hope AMD will at least make him a nice present for Christmas. A Porsche 911 or something like that.

                    Radeon continues to move forward, well done Marek. Performance is just about good enough now, we just need better power management...

                        I just registered to say that I paypalled him 20 to thank him for his work. I hope he has a nice early Christmas because of the donations and he doesn't need to depend on Bridgman's strained Linux budget

                          Bah, Paypal reversed it some hours later.. They want me to send them some photo ID and such, even after I already gave them my bank account# and routing number.. I'll have to send it again later.

                            I don't think he's being paid by AMD...

                              Shouldn't they share more code?

                              Nouveau is currently working on its own implementation.
                              I know that sometimes the differences in the underlying hardware architecture are so vast that it calls for a different implementation, but anyone else thinks that the graphics driver developers should make more of an effort to share code? The Gallium3D architecture is in itself a big leap in the right direction, but it is not a magical bullet, I have the impression that they simply don't have any active line of communication between projects to discuss possible sharing of code/effort and end up reinventing the wheel over and over again.

                              PS: Marek is just amazing, thanks for all the awesome work.
