    It's useful for not having to disable both HiZ/ZCULL's early pass AND early fail, but since ZCULL doesn't make much of a difference in the first place (at least for now) I don't particularly care....

    Given that SC2 is pretty much the only game I'm playing lately, it's pretty celebration-worthy for me, hence why it exists.

    It also proves that it's possible to actually write a D3D state tracker...

    Don't spoil my flicker of hope. Nouveau is also running at 1/10th the manpower. Which is probably why he's right, we might not be able to pull it off ... who knows.

    Pull what off ? Don't you read phoronix ? Nouveau wipes the floor with Southern Islands on a GPU that has been released even later and runs at 1/10th its maximum clock speed:...

    Expected, yes, also because there aren't any fun non-casual games there. I guess not many gamers (the target audience ?) are going to play a couple of old shooters are they ... Or people like me who...

    Same CPU though. So you may conclude that the driver code itself, while it may configure the GPU well, isn't very fast.

    Thank you :)



    The number of contributors is difficult to express in a meaningful measure because most of them (in this case, all but me and the guy hired by Red Hat) only very rarely find the...

    Fine. But that approach is not practical, because then you'd not be able to use nouveau on modern cards at all; also, for example, one of the components extremely vital for performance, the shaders,...

    That's not how it works. It's like saying you have to learn how to drive a horse carriage before you can learn to drive a modern car.

    To see how pointless and hopelessly slow nouveau is, let's pick an example in its favour, say 9800 GTX vs Radeon 6950.
    The Radeon card is about twice as powerful...

    And I have time to post on phoronix forums ... something doesn't add up.
  12. I have no / too little time to implement the tons...

    I have no / too little time to implement the tons of shader compiler optimizations I'd really like to implement to make things faster.
    I have no time for tuning and tweaking performance for various...

    For most cards there seem to be people with issues ... my GTX680 works perfectly fine, for Michael it seems not to. Should we disable acceleration for everything except, say, whatever works for him ?...
  14. The subliminal message was more along the lines...

    The subliminal message was more along the lines of "If it doesn't work, fix it !" I'm trying to get people to contribute but they're awfully resistant. Maybe that's not the right way. But then, if...

    Docs can also be crappy and near useless (except for public opinion). If you tried to write a driver for r600 having just the released docs, you'd probably fail miserably. Unless you count existing...

    That's not a fix, it's a workaround. If you had a fix, we might just care.
    Myself I really don't care (well, I do, but not to the point where I'd do something about it), my ~2000 hours of wasted...

    That will get done when someone who cares joins the circle of nouveau devs.

    2D Engine

    Do you think we're making this up ? - https://github.com/pathscale/envytools/blob/master/rnndb/nv50_2d.xml (NV50 = G80, naming always uses chipset id where the class interface first appeared)

    Neither does NV's 2D engine. It can do solids (with ROP) and blits. But still, setting up the 3D engine for a single, known operation is much easier than dealing with all of OpenGL. The most...
