    BPTC patches were not only published for nouveau, but also for r600g:

    Last I checked, AMD no longer lists Kabini as HSA compatible[1]. So I would avoid buying Kabini for HSA. The Kabini/Temash successors Beema/Mullins however seem to support HSA in some form.

  3. As far as I understand, the software needs not...

    As far as I understand, the software needs not use HSA explicitly. OpenCL is enough, and that is already in use by lots of applications.

    About the "lower level components", the JPEG decoder...

    @erendorn
    I have seen that, I even replied to his post. Whether the gcc.c compile benchmark qualifies as a real-world comparison is debatable (I tend to say no). But a problem is that it is not a...

    No, it is not from anywhere. It has been written from scratch, as was stated by NVidia and reported by phoronix.

    @przemoli
    Nobody? The reason and origin of this patch is even given in the article:
    So it is most plausible that the Tegra 4 Chromebooks (Acer CB5 hit the news last month) is what prompted NVidia...

    That is very optimistic. 10% is roughly the difference which you can see in select synthetic benchmarks, outside pathological cases.

    It was already said in this thread. On devices where all native...

    The graphics driver uses binary blobs. The hardware is not yet listed as supported by the reverse engineered Lima driver: http://limadriver.org/Hardware/ (though I understand that work has started...

    Ugh, so much misinformation here.

    x32 is basically x86_64 just with 32 bit pointers. It requires an x86_64 kernel.

    x32 will reduce memory usage, and especially memory bandwidth usage by...

    For radeonsi acceleration in Debian to work at all, you need glamor enabled xserver-xorg-video-radeon from experimental.

    Do you assume that it is AMD's fault that OpenGL is inconsistent across vendors? What can AMD do to make OpenGL consistent between Intel and NVidia?

    Maybe the same reason why nobody implements...

    Yes, but also AMD gets many important features earlier than Kepler and Maxwell. For example, multi-monitor (Eyefinity), DisplayPort 1.2 or DirectX 11.2 support.

    I would even say that historically,...

    OpenGL 4.0 (and some other things) are certainly nice to have, but I am very happy with how my radeon cards work today with AMD OSS drivers.

    On the other hand, NVidia uses Linux to their advantage...

    Why? Is only mesa open source? If the vendor chooses to implement things outside mesa (like Intel beignet), does that make it not-open-source?

    People who have compared the whitepapers about Metal...

    I think that AMD never promised to deliver video decode on the older hardware. If you buy an AMD card today (except 290/290X which is not working reliably yet), it will run fine for 2D, 3D and video...

    I have a 6870 and it has been working fine for games since I installed it in my system, and video playback since the day when AMD released the UVD code. Using only open source drivers.

    ASICs are...

    A program to recover deleted partitions is testdisk.
