    The discussion on the mailing lists looks to me like you never talked with the radeon team before posting patchset v1. An odd thing, i think.

    But you know that and less than 6 months ago they gave you an answer, to an question in this forum. So they told then the look into it, but even if implemented legal review could forbid them to...

    You bought HW designed before AMD commited full oss support, but with closed driver support. With the time advancing they then told they may get it working if they have not more important things to...
  4. That would be a silly decision, the origin of the...

    That would be a silly decision, the origin of the RS880 Chipset is in the not so oss friendly days, with many bugs in the hw. To get it working the time to invest is huge, for not so much return. All...

    No. Look back at AMDs openness in HW and SW, Bullet Physics, GDDR3/4/5, Code XL, HSA and all the things that made it into DP Standard, it is more likely to get something truly open from AMD instead...

    Long term ist will Be the same support in Linux as the Intel GPU have, Catalyst will be used less by consumers.
  7. GCN is way nearer on Nv than you think, aside...

    GCN is way nearer on Nv than you think, aside from that Mantle surley uses all the features that were missing on older AMD, eg. the memory change so nv support should be way better to implement than...
  8. No, and no or have you read the spec, an involved...

    No, and no or have you read the spec, an involved independent developer told, the nv should have the hw that is not within all the HD6000 and earlyer AMD GPU.


    They want to change how Catalyst...

    Well I woldn't care about them, the other GPU developers like Qualcom, Imagination, ARM and whoever I forgot to mantion, would have an bigger impact if exposed with Android which involves oss linux...

    For what I read after mantle presentation, some Features where needed which on AMD hw were introduced with GCN, but on other vendors GPU the features should be present on much older hw.

    Jea, as I understand his words on firmware, it is complete bs. Firmware on hw rom is ok, but the same fw from hdd into ram it isn't ok. But in reality as long as the fw blob is available on a...

    And for several of these exists a patch to make it work on AMD 280X. But it didn't got merged in the last 25 days the patch exist.
    Stupid to test per definition a SW that is obvious incompatible...

    Shader draw parameters is just over a year old so you seem to be wrong, didn't check the rest, it might work with older versions but i doupt it is in all opengl implementations included jet.

    If...

    Please, just implement Mantle in an oss driver, there is no point in having it in Catalyst, since no legacy support needed. Cough, shure it is may be easyer to have just one implementation for it...

    Good question why does not every car run up to 300kmph? The cheap answer ist no one will use it. So goes it with the FPU Particle simulations could also calculated on the GPU, it might needs...

    How did you come to that conclusion? As long as I Don't see to many Add in general I don't have a problem with that kind of news, but phoronix is from time to time very slow from time to time.

    @bridgman

    Isn't it that simple that a catalyst opengl stack developer, should document its work indpendent of the os.
    If he fixes a OpenGl function that behaves not like specified by Koronos then...

    Why should they do that, the radeon driver is not anymor miles away from feature completion on old GPUs. There is no need to port the legacy driver to the new kernel drm sheme, since when it would be...
