    Same reason the devs keep hanging out here rather than forcing everyone to the AMD forums -- it was there first and there was no compelling reason to replace it.



    If we hurried any more I don't...

    The main focus for the "OpenCL + shader compiler team" (aka Tom) for the last several months has been on improving the shader compiler for GCN, which benefits both graphics and compute.

    I'm guessing you weren't around in the "give us some documentation and the community will write everything for you" days...

    I'm just saying is that converting the IR isn't enough -- you need to convert the hardware device driver API as well. A state tracker uses both.

    I realize you don't need it now, but the Catalyst bug tracker the devs look at is here :

    artivision, there are always two parts to a hardware layer like Gallium3D -- the IR (TGSI in this case) and the runtime calls (aka Gallium3D interface aka pipe/window drivers).

    Both of those need...

    It seems to be generally accepted that adding some salt to the icewater results in an even faster chill.

    AFAIK DarkTable requires OpenCL image support, which is not yet implemented in the open source OpenCL implementation.

    You'll need to use the AMD Catalyst Linux driver to get OpenCL image support...

    Ahh, OK -- with VMware you'd be running a completely different 2D/3D graphics stack on the guest OS anyways (running on an emulated GPU), and IIRC the code paths only come back to native drivers when...

    ... or I guess you could be running quad Crossfire on Windows with the Catalyst driver and single-GPU on Linux with the radeon stack ?

    If you're running quadfire (= 4 card Crossfire ?) then it seems likely you are running the Catalyst Linux stack, not the radeon stack.

    Just go with what agd5f said -- RV6xx, RS780/880, RV770 were not supported before and they are supported now.

    I added a V to "RV6xx" for clarity.

    Combine your last two charts, re-label Linux to GNU/Linux and Android to Android/Linux and you'll get a better picture.

    Quick answer -- dynamic power consumption goes up linearly with clock speed, so at first glance higher clocks shouldn't be a big deal. At a system level, however, since voltages are typically set as...

    I don't know specific SKU plans, but it seems very unlikely that we would invest in a new x86 core and not offer it in both desktop and server SKUs.
