    I'm sure he also didn't expect to already see multiple demos from different software and hardware companies already working this early, so.... What he was naively guessing with no inside information...

    Keep in mind that GL 4.2 is already practically done. The major missing piece in 4.3 is compute shaders, which are also required for Vulkan - so you might as well bring that up in GL first anyways.

    It's essentially a virtual machine assembly language. Think java bytecode or .net MSIL. The driver will be able to read it in and easily generate actual hardware specific instructions from it because...
  4. That's actually false. GLSL is the programming...

    That's actually false.

    GLSL is the programming language, which gets translated to SPIR-V. OpenCL kernels also get translated to SPIR-V (while the non-kernel OpenCL code does not).

    Vulkan is an...

    LOL. :rolleyes:

    Judging by all the games on GOG, nobody uses anything past DX7. Why does anybody even bother with OpenGL or DX9?
  6. It would definitely be interesting to update...

    It would definitely be interesting to update Gallium to use SPIR-V directly instead of TGSI. I don't know if it'll happen or not, though - there's a lot of code relying on TGSI at this point that...

    Javascript isn't an interpreted language anymore - at least in the major browsers - it's all JIT.
  8. Sometimes the internet makes me sad at the state of humanity

    Reading this list of comments is one of those times.

    I noticed that. I guess we'll need to wait to see what happens. It was inevitable that they were going to say something like that, because OpenGL and GLES were going to stick around for backwards...
  10. All that matters is if they're good enough that...

    All that matters is if they're good enough that no one cares. Nobody worries whether AMD or NVidia have the worst DirectX drivers, and that's what we need to hope for from Vulkan.
  11. LOL at everyone here who seems to think that...

    LOL at everyone here who seems to think that OpenGL is some easy to use high level API.

    Vulkan is going to be just as "high level" as GL, it will just have some additional low-level methods you...

    That's like AMD saying DX12 requires GCN. Doesn't mean nvidia cards won't too.
  13. Maybe, but you could make a strong argument it...

    Maybe, but you could make a strong argument it was the #1 responsible factor in getting us DX12 and Vulkan, so I'd hardly call it useless. It did exactly what AMD wanted, which was to move the entire...

    That's possible in C#. In fact, I've done exactly that in a project, because as you say the run-time reflection isn't fast enough.


    You can also natively compile C# code, with no problems.

    The Qt port was never in a finished state, and was almost exclusively worked on by Nokia, who dropped it when they dropped Qt.

    It actually replaced quite a bit of the Cairo drawing code with code...

    I think the "partial" refers to the support only being turned on for a white-listed set of urls. Youtube is probably the only one (editable through config). Also, i think it might be preffed off for...

    It does, although r300 is really the only driver that affects (and maybe nv50?)

    The real reason it's misleading is that some of those lines are for tiny features and some for huge features, and...
  18. That's a funny way of putting it, Michael

    Considering that the softpipe driver only added support 1 day earlier, as part of the preparatory patches adding in Gallium support.

    Not necessarily a joke. From what I've heard their GL codebase is a giant mess and no one working there really understands it.

    Starting from a clean slate and not having to worry about every...
