    I think you're confusing cause and effect, if you're writing an open source game you want it to run on open source drivers which means limiting yourself to OpenGL 3.0. If you are writing a closed...

    Not entirely sure what specs Bridgman is referring to but the HDMI 1.3a spec can be downloaded from bottom link here. It refers again to CEA-861-D which unfortunately does not look to be free but if...

    They probably can not supply the decoder, but it's not needed. Either it can work in bitstreaming mode where it simply passes encoded packets to an external decoder, or it can work in LPCM 5.1/7.1...

    AMD Heterogeneous Systems Architecture roadmap is probably of interest here. Unified memory, GPU compute context switching, sounds to me like you'll go from the CPU to the GPU just like the CPU does...

    Ambition is fine. Delirious ambition with pie-in-the-sky goals and no real plan go get there that's even remotely realistic, that makes for a good lulz story. It's like a person with a $50k/year job...

    I'm guessing it's probably not that simple because the closed source driver has to protect the content all the way to the display. If you say it does UVD -> *shader functions* -> display and the open...

    Wine does not use DirectX natively, it implements the same APIs using OpenGL so effectively they're the same. I heard there was a DirectX state tracker for Gallium3D but I've never heard of anyone...

    Windows Embedded Compact, nobody is going to replace FGLRX on any normal consumer version of Windows. And for what it's worth FGLRX works just fine *on Windows*, complain all you want about how it...

    The easiest AMD could do is to be like nVidia. Source? No. Specs? No. Buzz off and go away. All you get a blob and the license says "No Reverse Engineering. Customer may not reverse engineer,...

    1-2% of a market where many are just as much "free as in beer" as "free as in freedom", on a platform that has no high-end games to speak of and that will lack many features simply because it's not...

    Well, since they missed the 3.2 merge window (@ rc2 now) or we'd have heard about it, I guess practically the next chance is the 3.3 merge window in January or so. Of course it would be good to get...

    Of course not. But ideology can only go so far in making up for deficiencies in the result.

    1) Gnome vs KDE
    2) Gtk vs Qt
    3) C vs C++
