    Maybe you miss something.

    Fact: both latest amd and nvidia cards work *now* with their blobs.
    Fact: amd cards will have fully open support in the future

    So you get what? Another card that doesn't run on opensource stack and needs a closed blob...
    At least support for an amd card will come sooner or later; forget it about nvidia.

    We all descend from monkeys.
    Are we monkeys?

    I've had problems with a HD3450 (RV610) on ubuntu on my notebook since I was testing DPM, back to kernel 3.11. To be specific, sometimes the system hangs at boot with a black screen and everything is...

    Some years ago (three maybe...) I did a empiric and very naive test on my notebook while transferring data from/to a ntfs partition.

    It would be truly nice to see a turbo boost comparison with slower notebook parts, like the a8-4500m that has a base clock of 1.9 ghz and a maximum boosted frequency of 2.5 ghz. It would be nice to...

    Who knows what the hell happens in that closed library? Maybe it's just a wrapper calling the OGL driver itself and maybe someone is trying to fool people with the excuse of the three euros...

    Mmmh... most references I find about denied access to 0x80000001 cpuid register are referring to virtualization.
    That's strange, it should not interfere at all, but if you can maybe try to enable...

    Thanks aceman.
    At the moment I have one situation like yours, where the call to cpuid 0x80000001 fails.

    The guy who had the same error was working on a machine with a EFI bios that, my guess, is...

    How could device drivers be moved outside kernel space?
    It sounds a bit silly to me, then there should be an interface to give full access to hardware directly from userspace, then it would be even...

    I took a look in PA source code, many of the resamplers are filled with comments about slow performance, and there's no SIMD use at all.

    High-end chips should have a completely new SIMD approach. This is the main reason there should be a new driver.
    Slower chips will use the older VLIW4 architecture and Trinity chips should use VLIW4...
