    EDIT - ignore my comment about compatibility profiles, that wouldn't explain why Intel graphics are supported but not AMD with the open drivers.

    New comment is "I dunno, that sounds strange".

    Mind if I say "worked around" in mesa rather than "fixed" in mesa, since strictly speaking it's a driver workaround for an illegal sequence in the application's shader ?

    I would argue that you should add data parallelism between threads and instructions, where data parallelism implies identifying chunks of data that can be processed in parallel and either explicitly...

    Nope. Saying an FPU is "256 bit" does not mean 256-bit precision, it just means that it can perform 8 32-bit floating point operations in parallel (or 4 64-bit in most cases) when executing SIMD...

    Aren't the SSE FP units IEEE-754 32/64-bit just like modern GPUs ? I thought it was just the older x87 instructions that used 80-bit internally...

    Hmm, I saw this post right *after* ordering a Kaveri-based Z50... went back and looked, yep it has the same off-center main keyboard to make room for the numeric pad. Might end up having to plug in a...

    For Michael or others...

    It's probably obvious what the message is saying, but in case it helps Google Translate gave me:

    Yeah, what complicates things is that *some* of the stuff running on hardware arguably *is* firmware (eg a network chip with a serious CPU on it running part of a network stack and probably a teeny...

    For the record, I'm only boycotting "out of the box" / "out of box" because there's a good chance no two adjacent people will agree on what it means. The rest I can live with although I hate seeing...

    I don't think mesa is involved in suspend/resume processing.

    The other userspace drivers don't really talk to the X driver (other than indirectly via DRI to find out where windows are etc...), they just talk to the kernel driver.

    The microcode images are not "in the kernel", they're just external files which the kernel code copies into the hardware.

    I think grndzro is trying to say that the kernel driver will be...

    Not really merging anything into Mesa.

    IIRC that's usually for some indirect reason, eg desktop compositing keeps the small GPU busy (and hence clocks up) while the big chip can composite with idle clocks.

    Graphics cards still have specialized hardware for 3D graphics. What changed is that the 3D graphics pipeline evolved from fixed-function processing to programmable processing (shaders) with each...
