    Not sure that's true any more. Different accel methods are faster on different benchmarks, so it's easy to prove whatever you want, but AFAICS Glamor has caught up with XAA/EXA.

    Not sure about...

    How does the developer distinguish between "people who pirate because of DRM" and "people who pirate because hey it's cheaper that way" ?

    Short of a mechanism that lets you put funds into escrow...

    You can buy an ATIV Book 9 with AMD APU, thought it was same form factor as the Plus:

    There is edit functionality but it's only available for the first 5 minutes after initial post.

    My post count growth would probably be 30-40% lower if that timeout were extended.

    He's talking about two different things -- unfortunately they both get referred to as "firmware blobs" which leads to all kinds of wrong conclusions. First sentence refers to hardware microcode...
  6. Hmm, not sure how that happened.

    Hmm, not sure how that happened.
  7. The features and performance you're concerned...

    The features and performance you're concerned about generally come from the userspace driver (radeonsi in your case) and nothing is changing there.

    Remember that new userspace drivers have been...

    The features and performance you're concerned about generally come from the userspace driver, and that's not changing.

    ... or someone gets bored with working on "must have" stuff, which is how many of the interesting improvements actually happen :)
  10. The hard work for multi-GPU 3D rendering is...

    The hard work for multi-GPU 3D rendering is almost completely HW-independent so I think we were kinda hoping someone else would do it as a mostly-cross-vendor solution. It's also almost entirely...

    I can't help thinking it would be cheaper for us to send schmidtbag a faster card, take his 5750s away, and forget about Crossfire :)
  12. Are you the one with 2x HD 5750 ?

    Are you the one with 2x HD 5750 ?
  13. There are two different options depending on the...

    There are two different options depending on the relative performance of the iGPU and dGPU. Hybrid Crossfire is like Crossfire but needs a dGPU with comparable performance to the iGPU, Hybrid...

    Who said we should shift resources from closed source to open source, preferably without going out of business in the process ? Raise your hands.

    Seriously, there are three ways to do it :

  15. Are you asking about the case where a performance...

    Are you asking about the case where a performance optimization in the kernel helps the closed source UMD more than the open source UMD because of lower overhead in the closed source UMD ? In that...

    The whole idea is that most of the stack *will* be shared code parts, and that's where the bulk of the benefit will accrue.



    Releasing - no, but other changes are in process which will...

    Yep, we're moving components over to open source and putting more resources on open source components because we want the blob to be better... :confused: :confused:
  18. Initial implementation will be for newer hardware...

    Initial implementation will be for newer hardware only (basically anything not already supported by radeon). Apart from only wanting one kernel driver upstream for each HW device, there are some...

    The above two statements are equally true.

    No, there are fewer blobs. Catalyst has always been there, you just weren't thinking about it before :)
