    If anyone wants one more reason, decoding JPEG files is also a lot faster than decoding PNG.

    Well, I guess, even if you are not scared after learning about the hefty price tag and are ready to pay that much money, then the corporatocrats in charge will make up some different reason to refuse...

    "They will only be available to qualified partners and developers" - basically, these boards are not for the mere mortals. You will not be able to buy them even if you wanted to...

    Intel is already way too overrepresented in the OSS graphics space. Rebalancing the efforts and also taking care of the other hardware is good :)

    Which applications? Could you please provide a list?
  6. For the start, please try using GCC and Clang...

    For the start, please try using GCC and Clang yourself. It is really not difficult to get a little bit of first hand experience with both and see whether Clang is really catching up or not. Using the...

    Michael seems to favor floating point benchmarks once again. Regardless of whether the floating point performance makes much sense for anything other than scientific computations (which are hardly a...

    I'm more interested to know if there are any good (or just any) open source OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible games for linux.

    Android is their main target platform. This has a lot of implications. For example, Android is not using KMS for their display drivers. Which causes the "traditional fbdev" vs. "KMS" fragmentation....

    Yes, with poor X server DDX drivers you can easily hit scenarios when the performance gets killed. The solution is not to use poor drivers. Admittedly this is rather difficult. Especially on ARM...
  11. Yes and no. I'm not taking individual parts (just...

    Yes and no. I'm not taking individual parts (just the server or compositor alone), but looking at the graphics stack as a whole. The purpose of a window system is to provide multiple windows for...

    Based on what I know, the V3D hardware registers are accessible from the ARM core: https://github.com/phire/hackdriver/

  13. Makes direct use to do what? Windows composition...

    Makes direct use to do what? Windows composition is just an extra overhead (even if it is the hardware accelerated overhead).

    Can any of the Wayland supporters in this thread answer the following...

    Can you elaborate on this? What exactly is accelerated? I mean, does it already offer something other than just fancy windows composition (which is optional and better to be disabled altogether on...

    The maintainers of the linux distributions don't have unlimited resources and do care about reducing the efforts that have to be done on their side. And the people who don't have spare time and...

    It's not always a technical superiority, but sometimes just a matter of fashion, shameless propaganda or other purely social reasons. Humans are not very bright on average and are easy to manipulate...

    If your primary intended use was a desktop computer replacement, then this kind of hardware was not the best choice. Cubieboard 2 uses a dual-core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at only 912MHz by...
