    Hi Michael,

    Could you please disable those annoying ads that constantly foward my browser from Phoronix.com to some scam site? If not I will need to activate my ad-blocker again becasue this has become an abomination...
    Also animated ads actually are not suited for a website requiring to concentrate on text and reading.

      Do you have a URL for the ad? Without knowing specifically about what ads people talk about, I can't block them, as there's thousands of different ad campaigns any given day on Phoronix and I only ever personally see a fraction of them....

        ASTC

        Sure its great that they now support S3TC, but lets hope that they make sure that ASTC ends up (or remains) the preferred/primary form of texture compression that gets used.

          ETC2 is the lossy texture compression technique developed by Ericsson that is royalty-free and part of OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenGL 4.3. ETC2 is the way forward but not many GPUs natively support ETC2
          ASTC/ETC2 isn't natively supported by many GPUs YET!

          Application developers who write modern applications should at least allow use of ASTC/ETC2 instead of the patented older S3TC texture format.

              Another one:
              Code:
              http://de.elsword.gameforge.com/landing/?kid=a-48806-08806-1105-a3810101&gfsid=15489DE
              It appears you you block gameforge.com.
