    Just a misinterpretation of what you meant by intel's fake S3TC vs native S2TC... I believe we agree. S3TC decompression is already handled by the card, and the S2TC algorithm implemented in place...
  2. I wouldn't see this as a step further. S3TC is...

    I wouldn't see this as a step further. S3TC is higher quality, so if S2TC is the fall back compression (in the event that applications have not provided pre-compressed S3TC textures, or the S3TC...
  3. It thought S2TC compression gave good (not great)...

    It thought S2TC compression gave good (not great) results, is open, and is backwards compatible with S3TC, no?

    Could you not just implement S3TC compression interfaces using S2TC by default. This...

    I can see the benefit of testing on other cards to get the subtle differences in implementation, but wouldn't memory shortages be relatively "easily" tested with developer tools or special driver...

    LOL, seriously what?

    OpenGL 4.0 *open source* support for hardware that isn't released yet!!! And there have been significant advances over the past few years to get OpenGL support current......
  6. I'm not sure what work they would be doing for...

    I'm not sure what work they would be doing for competitors? If this is GPU-GPU then their proprietary solution is for them. If this is for optimus, then the whole sales pitch is that they work with...
  7. So, why couldn't NVidia just re-implement the...

    So, why couldn't NVidia just re-implement the DMA-BUF interface for their driver, and then recompile the Intel and AMD open source drivers against that interface? (and distribute the Intel and AMD...

    I'd love to be able to throw $1, $20, $50 into a pool, of which then I could specify which group of bugs / feature-set / application's are my top priority (and perhaps their max worth to me $1-5). ...
  9. One thing that isn't clear to me... wouldn't the...

    Correction - this is already implemented in the open-source stack, you just have to turn it on.

    I'm not sure if this says more about the Intel Linux driver or the Intel Windows driver. But it's...
  10. funds

    Other graphics projects (say Krita I believe) have successfully fund raised money for a chunk of focused development... considering how widely used GIMP is, it seems sad that they haven't. I don't...
  11. 855 fix?

    What is the 855GM fix? The pull request doesn't really make it obvious (to those of us not in tune with development)

    Based on my understanding, Oracle has been invited to participate in the new foundation as well (hopefully they will donate the OpenOffice brand/trademarks)

    It would certainly be nice if Phoronix...

    So implement Open GL 3x/4x cleanly on Gallium3d. Either way, the more API's available to choose from, the more use cases Gallium3D suits. The more used Gallium3D is, the more the various layers and...

    Really? Krita paid for a significant chunk of dedicated development time through donations! Perhaps it's the structure and management that needs improvement.

    My frustration is that I have this hardware - and perhaps an fortunate enough to have common enough hardware that it runs sort of OK on.

    Perhaps this is a naive question -- but how many people...

    Well, as it was already stated - those who bought hardware with this chip (series) had (and still have) use cases that it's limited GPU acceleration (2d and 3d) was sufficient for.
