    Apple also used to be licensing the CPU cores designed by ARM, but this did not last long. Now they are designing their CPU cores in-house and even managed to leap ahead of the competition with the...

    Well, we should give credit where it is due. The whole GMA500 situation is upon us because Intel was simply not able to provide a better mobile GPU hardware of their own. IMG surely does have some...

    This may surprise you, but every IP core from ARM usually has more than one revision (labeled as "rXpY", where X and Y are the major and minor version numbers respectively). Newer revisions have...

    Yes, some alpha blending support is indeed available. But after quickly skimming through the documentation, it does not seem to be sufficient to support everything that is needed for SVG, PDF,...

    I found this "non-commercial" reference in https://github.com/asicguy/gplgpu/blob/master/docs/GPLGPU.docx

    Also the 2D accelerator part does not seem have full support for Porter-Duff compositing...

    What does "licensed under the GPL v3.0 for non-commercial use" actually mean? Is this non-commercial restriction an extra clause in addition to GPL?

    We can only welcome this news. This is all about open source hardware, which is only starting to take off the ground. Something like the OpenRISC CPU core combined with this GPU could be one of the...

    If anyone wants one more reason, decoding JPEG files is also a lot faster than decoding PNG.

    Well, I guess, even if you are not scared after learning about the hefty price tag and are ready to pay that much money, then the corporatocrats in charge will make up some different reason to refuse...

    "They will only be available to qualified partners and developers" - basically, these boards are not for the mere mortals. You will not be able to buy them even if you wanted to...

    Intel is already way too overrepresented in the OSS graphics space. Rebalancing the efforts and also taking care of the other hardware is good :)

    For the start, please try using GCC and Clang yourself. It is really not difficult to get a little bit of first hand experience with both and see whether Clang is really catching up or not. Using the...

    Android is their main target platform. This has a lot of implications. For example, Android is not using KMS for their display drivers. Which causes the "traditional fbdev" vs. "KMS" fragmentation....

    Yes, with poor X server DDX drivers you can easily hit scenarios when the performance gets killed. The solution is not to use poor drivers. Admittedly this is rather difficult. Especially on ARM...

    Yes and no. I'm not taking individual parts (just the server or compositor alone), but looking at the graphics stack as a whole. The purpose of a window system is to provide multiple windows for...
