    Probably fair to describe the current state as "patches are being reviewed, seems promising so far but the patches are big so will take some time".

    Just curious, what makes the Intel open source graphics drivers "ok" for gaming but the AMD open source graphics drivers "a nightmare" ?

    First time I heard anyone saying that was maybe 6 months ago, although I understand that corresponds to 3-4 years in dog years or internet time:

    GL 2.1 - Aug 2010

    GL 3.0 - Sep 2013

    GL 3.3 -...

    Not sure where you obtained that understanding from, but suggest you ignore them in future :)

    There's no such thing as "the most updated for the newer cards". The radeon kernel driver will provide...

    The 8790M should already be supported by the radeon kernel driver and existing userspace stack, including 3D acceleration. Remember that amdgpu is just a different kernel driver, the rest of the...

    Yeah, it depends on how high the hardware layer is in the OpenGL stack relative to Vulkan. If Vulkan ends up at approximately the same level as Gallium3D (which I think is the case) then the effort...

    The numbers for most recent quarter are probably 50-60 active devs with 4-5 of them working on GL 4.x and the rest working on bug fixes, performance or hardware enablement.

    There have been 683 devs since the Mesa git repository started ~15 years ago. I suspect the number of active devs in any quarter is much much much much much lower. There have been more than 2 working...

    Sorry, I've never been good at picking up on sarcasm. It probably helps in this line of work :D

    I think so. Metro 2033 and LL both use compute shaders on Windows, and LL uses tesselation. Not sure if any games are using compute shaders on Linux yet.
  12. For clarity, I don't think anyone is saying...

    For clarity, I don't think anyone is saying "implement just some of the extensions then stop", only question is which extensions should be worked on first.

    The developers are saying "hey let's...
  13. I think the implication is that if the extensions...

    I think the implication is that if the extensions are a pointless waste of time then the games you want to run won't use them either.

    If so, then once the extensions the game actually uses are...

    I believe the term you're looking for is "on the gripping hand" (from Mote in God's Eye).

    You need to replace <output> with the driver's name for the output (connector) your TV is using. Might be HDMI, or HDMI-0, or DVI etc...

    You can get the name from the X log or just run xrandr -q.

    I have no idea what you are trying to say with those two questions. What I was saying, though, was that since the photo showed overscan and I hadn't heard anything about Catalyst removing the...

    Remember that GCN versions refer to the GFX block (graphics/shader/compute) but display capabilities like FreeSync are dictated by the display block version, not GFX.

    For clarity I am neither...

    That might have been sarcasm :)

    Actually the Linux drivers for Rage XL were relatively limited compared to what is available today. They did have 3D though and IIRC were written by the Precision...

    Q, are you using Catalyst Linux or radeon ? My recollection was that Catalyst Linux defaulted to *underscan*, not overscan but there was a control panel option to change it. Given that, I'm assuming...

    Depends on whether you are talking about Mullins/Beema or Kaveri/Carrizo. If the latter, the GPU has 1.5-2x the graphics resources of a typical lowend GPU, and the first bottleneck is typically...
