    Bridgman wasn't talking about Catalyst at all, he was only comparing the 2 OSS driver stacks.

    But yes, when Catalyst is updated it will start using Glamor (supposedly - it's still pretty far out...

    Not yet, because the userspace portions of the drivers will conflict with each other.

    NVidia had a proposal out for a new OpenGL ABI on linux, that would solve the problem. I'm guessing that's...
  3. Michael,

    Again, Michael, AMD has been clear that Catalyst support for the ADMGPU kernel won't go public until the r9 4xx generation, a.k.a. quite a while. They'll only use it for internal testing on the...

    If AMD was serious about open source drivers they'd send me free samples of all their new hardware.

    Your move, bridgman. :cool:
  5. I'd be shocked if they don't add an extension...

    I'd be shocked if they don't add an extension which allows OpenGL to accept SPIR-V shaders instead of GLSL. Depending on your definition, that could be a pretty major change, or a minor one.

    Yeah, that theory has been going around for a few years now. That css on dvds was so simple and basic it couldn't possibly be defined as an effective DRM measure designed to stop people from...

    amdgpu will be used by 285 and newer for the open source drivers.

    It will not be used by fglrx, not until the next 400 series generation.

    AMD has been clear about this, Michael and phoronix...

    Well, they spend a lot of money on drivers already in an attempt to make sure their OS can use the hardware you want to run it on.

    They also have an interest in virtualization - getting 3D...

    Isn't that exactly what someone with an agenda would say?
  10. Sorry, i misread one of your earlier posts.

    That's not quite true. One of the suggestions was to have kdbus different than legacy dbus, but modify libdbus to handle it in a backwards compatible fashion such that userspace users wouldn't see...

    Note that AMD has been clear from the start that the R9 285 and upcoming Rx 300 generation will continue to be using the old fglrx stack.

    The plan is for them to do behind the scenes testing on...

    Shocking. Who could have ever guessed this was coming.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they release some public (preview) documentation at the event, with the final release date closer to November.

    I was speaking of the geometry shader support. Michael's story says it was turned on, but that's only true for the more recent hardware generations.
  16. I'm not sure why you expect x265 to mature over...

    I'm not sure why you expect x265 to mature over time due to having better technology, but don't extend the same logic to VP9 since it also has better tech than h264.

    To me, the VP9 and h265 images...

    Yes, SB is the optimizing compiler in the driver. I doubt it makes much of a difference - not many apps use complicated geometry shaders, but it's good to have it done regardless.

    Also note that...
  18. So how exactly does this get used?

    Is there an OpenCL extension or something? Or is it only useful for someone writing a compiler backend, like something for HSA?

    Bridgman said they were "hoping" to get it out for 4.1.

    Read into that what you will. As always, it's impossible to get the real schedule. It will be announced whenever the lawyers finish signing...

    Ok, I'm curious. Got any links? Was it just some micro-benchmark?
