The State Of Open-Source Radeon Driver Features
Phoronix: The State Of Open-Source Radeon Driver Features
For those curious about the state of various features for the range of ATI/AMD Radeon GPUs on the open-source Linux graphics driver stack, the feature Wiki continues to be maintained...
Seems the current TODO list will never end in Open-Source Radeon
Open-Source Radeon graphics development is soooooo slow that it seems that the current TODO list will never end. Any tentative dates as to when we can see Open-Source Radeon performance comparable with Catalyst. I'm aware even catalyst implementation is also bad if you consider the xvba-va-driver and other such wrappers/layers. Too bad on the part of AMD!
HyperZ doesn't work properly for r300g either.
My laptop has a M66GL chip (~ RV535, I think), and I used to play Warcraft on it with the following options:
However, after the "Mists of Pandaria" upgrade, I have been forced to disable HyperZ completely. Otherwise the screen periodically goes completely blank, except for the UI. It only happens for a second or two, but it's very, very frustrating.
(My RV350 doesn't have this problem - it presumably doesn't support the relevant part of HyperZ.)
