    You realise that Foxconn manufacture most of the motherboards in the world right? Not just Intel, not just Apple.... They manufacture for everyone because they offer the cheapest workers, and they...
  2. Nouveau Status

    A lot of people thought i was crazy for saying it, but there are only 7 extensions left until full OpenGL 4.2 support, and Nouveau reclocking is coming along very quickly now. I'm expecting by mid...

    Nouveau Status

    The current Nouveau Status is outlined on the Freedesktop.org page. Basically if you want the most up-to date OpenGL features in an open source driver, Nouveau is beating the Open Source ATI team:...

    If these are successful they could seriously start to mess with Nikkon/Canon. Pro camera's are only expensive due to firmware locks. There's a ton of stuff they've been able to hack into lower model...

    I'm a Linux gamer, but I'm rarely firing up Steam, why? Lack of AAA titles. CIv V is great, Planetary Annihilation great, Counterstrike/Halflife games great. But there's not much else on the platform...
  6. Exciting News

    Thanks to the Gallium3D state Tracker model, we will very shortly have support for all the OpenGL 4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4 extensions on Nouveau. Combined with the power management work, and we are well on...
  7. Cry harder.

    Wah wah wah, look at all the big babies. This time next year, OpenGL 4 will exist in Nouveau with full reclocking support on current generation GPUs. Nvidia doesn't need to release anything at the...
  8. Sooo

    Basically confirming what I've been saying. This time next year, nouveau is going to be a high performance 3d driver.

    Current status of OpenGL 4 in Mesa (this is why I have faith that it will be coming next year around mid year):
    GL 4.0:
    17/26 Completed

    GL 4.1:
    4/7 Completed

    GL 4.2:
    9/12 Completed

    I agree here except for one thing. NVIDIA has an open source driver, and they're actively contributing to it. Yes nouveau is new, but it already has the 3d code implemented, it's just power...
  11. Running the numbers

    So I just ran the numbers on the Nouveau development efforts and here's my stats:

    The first set of numbers is everything listed on their status matrices, the numbers are broken down by chipset.
    ...
  12. Wrong

    Err... WRONG.

    Nouveau. Seriously guys, stop talking without researching. Nouveau has implemented 99% of features that the NVIDIA binary driver has. The last thing needed is power management. And...

    Sandy Bridge

    Running Sandy Bridge here, never had a problem with driver stability on my macbook pro. I also use nvidia on my desktop.
  14. How I see it.

    I see a LOT of AMD Users being very butthurt over AMD's poor quality engineering team. Open source drivers are getting there and the performance is coming with the engineering. But NVIDIA has always...

    For a spec that's so "broken" it appears to work fine on all platforms with NVIDIA graphics cards. Maybe AMD just don't know howto implement OpenGL properly?
  16. A = Nvidia B= ATi/AMD C = Intel Pretty...

    A = Nvidia
    B= ATi/AMD
    C = Intel

    Pretty obvious. Nvidia uses a lot of Sillicon Graphics Inc code, hence why they won't open it. Interesting read about nvidia's OpenGL driver being broken,...
  17. Why there are fewer women in tech.

    I think the discrimination starts in childhood, with fathers preferring to engage more with their sons, leaving their wives to engage with their daughters, or when they do engage with their...
  18. Why there are fewer women in tech.

    Nothing. Now if you want to rephrase the question to what's stopping women from getting into tech in general, I think I have the answer. See FOSS developers are maybe 1% of the tech industry. They...
  19. Shell is terrible

    Gnome Shell is terrible on desktop PCs.

    End of story. The GNOME developers really need to pull their head out of their ass, and realise the mistakes with gnome shell mirror the mistakes that...

    Backed it for $1250. Going to build a completely new PC just to play this game. Fuck PC/MAC. Linux is the only platform I'm ever going to run this on. Chris Roberts is my hero. I'll back his next...
