    Do not gloryfy AMD

    Well, AMD might offer some documentation of their ISA, but compared to the speed the development for real open source UNIX like systems, mainly the *BSD lines, is going on, there is a lot to...

    This is good news.

    This is also a great step ahead towards GPGPU usage for FreeBSD on basis of OpenCL.

    Despite the fact nVidia provides a useful BLOB for FreeBSD *NIX, for unknown reasons...

    My regards for volunteering for this high-priced piece of silica.

    But - as others already said, useless due to the lack of reference values.

    What about OpenCL benchmarks? This expensive GPU is...
  4. Fun with crusader's GPLv3 ...

    Isn't that funny: First, the GNU and Linux community start to push everything INTO GPLv3 and further and now several projects are pushing towards a BSD-/MIT-style licensing model used by the *BSD...

    Typical case of mild form of idocracy ;-) At least MESA should have left the code within their codebase as long as LLVM hasn't the backend officially ...

    The chances getting GPGPU working on FreeBSD via...

    The chances getting GPGPU working on FreeBSD via OpenCL are much better with an open source driver than with nVidias BLOB. nVidia is still not willing to support FreeBSD for this very important GPU...
  7. Well, nVidia needs to develop and maintain a...

    Well, nVidia needs to develop and maintain a complete compiler infrastructure (nvcc) to produce PTX code from CUDA or OpenCL. Theoretically, by hiding more technical aspects of the GPU by a well...

    It would have been nice if you would have also put FreeBSD 9.1-PRERELEASE into your benchmark parcours, since in the past, it came up to light that DragonFly BSD is now capable of keeping pace with...

    Two steps back, one forward ...

    For all of you who are with the FreeBSD project, offering ISO snapshots even of the ongoing, cutting edge development version, has been droped a while ago. If you look at the FTP tree structure at...
  10. really necessary?

    Well, such things happen all the day in a "in-development" system and therefore people/developers are happy having some laboratory rats testing. But is this worth a whole message on a news platform?

    AMD crap

    The AMD opensource driver looks like crap!
  12. Not worth to be mentioned!

    What? AMD is dropping some breadcrumbs into the community and now they are supposed "supporting"? That makes me laugh! This left wing arrogant typus Torvalds unleashed his filthy mouth on nVidia (and...

    Most of the mentioned (and too early reported herein!) issues with FreeBSD are neglegible. ISDN/SIP is important for many people. A GLUSTER (Linux terminology) filesystem is also important, but only...
  14. Useless!

    Well, useless isn't the proper term, but this more PR related move of nVidia is useless for most of the users of CUDA and even OpenCL. I prefer *BSD UNIX as the platform performing my scientific work...

    The FreeBSD Intel-GPU Wiki states, that the developer doesn't care about an overall solution for KMS. "The power to serve" OS is personally the first choice of mine, when it comes to setup servers on...
