  1. NVidia and AMD both have their own debuggers, but...

    NVidia and AMD both have their own debuggers, but i'm not sure if they're free or not. And i think they are tied to their hardware, while VOGL attempts to work on everything.

    Yeah, that's probably what he was referring to. But that is an incorrect viewpoint, because that was an improvement not a regression.

    And really only affected people building mesa themselves who...

    Maybe. It's just that he specifically mentioned older cards, and hyperz is disabled for everything.

    The devs don't say it's useless, they say it isn't enough. I'm pretty sure they've said the 32mb on the xbox one needs to be more like 48mb to get good 1080p performance, which is why so many of the...

    Like what, exactly? AFAIK, DPM is the only thing they've really been messing around with like that.

    KDE Frameworks and Desktop (Plasma) are in bug-fix mode while they focus on FW5/Plasma2.

    KDE Applications, however, were encouraged to keep focusing on the 4.13 release. Now that it's out, i...
  7. I don't think most people really give it that...

    I don't think most people really give it that much thought. LLVM has become a buzzword. People see it and automatically think it must be better.

    Also, there's the whole thing of having the SI...

    This has nothing to do with llvmpipe, or even radeonSI.

    It's about the r600 backend inside llvm, which isn't as good as the compiler and sb optimizer inside mesa's r600g driver. Nothing else.

    The article is referring to Chromium, not Chrome.

    Chromium is open source code, and has no binary plugins shipped with it. You can't get the PPAPI version of flash in it, except by downloading...
  10. Pepper flash is not redistributable on it's own....

    Pepper flash is not redistributable on it's own. It's good to hear there is a package with it anyway, and that they're just ignoring the legal issues since it's not like anyone is going to sue over...

    Dungeon showed massive performance boosts for hyperz at 1080p resolution. It makes a big difference on bandwidth limited platforms like this. Even at the lower resolutions i think it was 5-10%, which...

    Yep, pretty typical Phoronix.

    At this point it's not even clear Mantle provides any real benefits over OpenGL. I'm guessing anything missing could be added in a couple new extensions.

    It's...

    Those settings should only affect graphics - and i'm sure they were the problem in his gpu tests. But they shouldn't have any effect on the cpu-only tests, which were also much slower than expected.

    Has nothing to do with Mantle. No game is going to avoid supporting every nvidia card, every intel chip, and all the old radeon cards as well. It's obviously going to have an OpenGL backend along...

    Anyone know what the radeon changes included are?

    I assume it fixes the register allocation bug that michael always runs into when testing. Does it add geometry shader and gl3.3 support?

    Apple is not known for having extremely spec compliant hardware.

    They back whatever they want - sometimes it makes sense to use the standard, sometimes it doesn't. This time it didn't, and that's...

    Not according to popcon from last August, though admittedly that is a horrible way to measure.

    That's the way Intel wrote the spec. Apple did their own thing, as usual.

    Is AMD starting to regret requiring llvm for new driver versions yet, given how slowly everyone upgrades? Or do you still think it was the right decision?
