    Not expecting benefits to the kernel directly -- the kernel driver exposes functionality to userspace that toolchains can call on to let apps more-or-less invisibly run faster. The app may or may not...

    That made sense for parts with a single power dissipation rating, but for parts with two ratings (eg 65W/45W) where I *think* the clock speeds are different at different ratings it's less clear how...

    At first glance it appears that we might have been able to meet the original A8-7600 power levels without having to fuse off any GPU cores and so decided to sell the part as an A10-7800 instead of...

    Yeah, the nice thing is that you don't have to transfer betwen them at all -- the GPU (or DSP etc..) runs in the same demand-paged virtual address space as the CPU so they can share data structures...

    OK, I'm starting to think you have an out-of-whack view of how the review/revise/release process happens. It's not like there's a single deterministic list of tasks defined at the start that get...

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner !!



    Your text I quoted talked about "the question:". That one.

    Since the whole review/sanitize/release exercise is about determining what secrets are...

    Vim_User, how do you reconcile all the work that's been done (and is still being done) to support your hardware in the open source drivers with the statements you're making ? You're the one who said...

    Doesn't radeon default to EXA (running on the 3D engine) for 3xx-5xx these days anyways ?

    My recollection was that XAA used the 2D engine quite a bit but EXA did not...

    We already have the teams working closely together, but the drivers are architecturally quite different (memory manager, command submission, fencing, use of DMA etc..). The static register settings...

    Yeah, the kernel driver was passed a list of buffer handles and a list of "relocs", ie places in the command stream where buffers were referenced. After making sure that each buffer was owned by the...

    Yep, ideally the stack would be able to pop up something like "this app is using capabilities not supported by the HW so you need to choose between (slow) SW fallbacks or rendering only what the HW...

    One minor clarification... API calls are not turned into IR... the IR is how shader programs are described to the HW driver, while API calls perform the actual setup & drawing functions.

    Yep. One of the confusing things was that when Gallium3D was introduced there was obviously discussion and documentation about the new API and IR, but since the info was aimed at existing Mesa...
