    Look, no one is going to seriously use it to make an actual new D3D9 game now. Meanwhile, it's vastly improving the performance of many games running under Wine. What downside to this being accepted...

    Be careful not to compare apples to oranges. This is talk about comparing the proprietary drivers, not the open-source ones. (Even if that is the way to go in the end.)

    That said, it probably just...

    PMdh04000: I'm a different person, though felt the need to point it out as it does change the meaning entirely.


    Ah, it's just the difference between saying "Pretty much no one does it like this"...

    "It's never worked this way" is not "It's never worked".

    Valve has, in the past, invited over driver developers from NVIDIA, Intel and AMD to have sessions where they take a look at bottlenecks in graphics performance and try to solve the issues in both...
  6. Isn't that train of thought a bit weird?...

    Isn't that train of thought a bit weird? Disabling Catalyst AI by default is seriously just a "flip of the switch" type of effort from AMD's side. Wouldn't it make more sense if they, y'know, fixed...

    It's likely some performance enhancements won't really be used by other OSes because they're most suitable for gaming systems and not all-purpose or server systems. Last I checked, the kernel has a...

    Practically speaking, I think we're going to have a proper usable desktop system besides the Big Picture mode. I mean, I'm sure at least some of the Valve devs want it, and I'm sure it's necessary to...
  9. Uh, you do realize that's a valid excuse, right?...

    Uh, you do realize that's a valid excuse, right? When software is in alpha, the most important thing is making it work. Making it work fast comes afterwards. I've seen it happen with a bunch of...

    Sorry, but could you please read the article again?


    Edit: after checking the ppt, this seems to be an error in the way it's written on Phoronix. Sorry about using it as an argument. In any case,...

    If you really want to know, I recommend you check out the slideshow linked in the Phoronix news post. It explains the "why bother?" in some detail.

    For me, the single-window mode option appears inside the Windows menu (this is on a Windows version though, not sure if it matters).

    To me, this is a very welcome change, and one that should have been here long ago.

    Most software I know uses docks or MDI to place elements related to the software into a single window. What the...

    Have you tried Gnome 3 with a Mobility Radeon HD 4xxx card? The drivers may be in decent shape for games, but for compositing even the proprietary drivers are fairly broken, or at least they have...
