    I disagree. VGA works fine and is still useful for DIY projects and special uses. Analog has its advantages. And sometimes it's even better than HDMI.

    It's HDMI which should cease to exist.

    Is that something the Catalyst team (reasonably) decided or is it simply not possible?

    Direct3D article on Wikipedia seems to imply that it would be possible to support DX12 on DX11 hardware only...

    Who said anything about Catalyst?
    I have been using free drivers from the beginning.

    I'll add Vulkan support myself if I have to. :)

    All AMD cards from Evergreen (HD5430+) and up support OpenGL 4.1.

    http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature/

    So it would seem all of my cards will get Vulkan support too.

    It could be _possible_ if such consoles did not come with any exclusive games. But they always do.

    I buy a new console whenever I want to try a new game not otherwise available. The console itself...

    Thank you. I was just about to ask.

    Since GPUs do not run SPIR-V natively some kind of translation layer must always exist in between.

    Perhaps they are planning on applying a fix for this in November 2015?
  8. Question

    Is SPIR-V like some kind of shared, cross-platform binary BLOB interface?
    How likely can it be used to take total control over the computer?

    Still, Vulkan seems like great progress. I used to do...

    Do you run Coreboot on it?

    I'm just wondering how well would it work? (VGA?)

    I read about people using it with Coreboot but this doesn't directly list it as supported:...

    Our IBM server with UEFI takes over 5 minutes to boot. The OS portition (with sysvinit) takes less than 10 seconds.

    So is 5 minutes the norm for UEFI while faster UEFI systems just skip...

    Funny that I have two almost identical systems with Sabertooth 990FX R2 bios 2501 + FX-8350 + 16GB ECC memory both running 3.17.4 and vfio.

    I do not remember any unstability with 3.17.x but I did...

    Yeah, I noticed that too. It's mentioned on Wikipedia.

    Foxconn is such a huge corporation that it's likely the quality and production requirements are written on contract and THAT determines the...

    But that's just unnecessary. It's in fact better if they have the same name if they do the same basic task. This only applies to generic names of course.

    If they were named differently and I had...

    Sigh. Whenever "GNOME" or "KDE" is mentioned trolls attack the comment section. In fact I have been ignoring comments on these articles recently and unless the situation changes will probably...

    I believe they already decided to call them "Gnome System Settings" and "KDE System Settings", but with the prefix removed under native DE.

    And a possible long term solution is to remove the need...

    yes

    I'm getting occasional GPU lockups in Nexuiz with effects set to "ultra". If effects are set to "high" the problem disappears. And this is indeed with HD 5650.

    Confirmed with Mesa 7.11-rc2,...

    I suspect it wouldn't work with fast-paced games, but with games like Fallout 2 it might.

    It would certainly be possible to interpolate some more clock frequencies between clock modes and then...

    I think desktop effects or things like that may need faster upclocking. (Not sure I don't use any.)

    Also if I play a video clip with "mplayer -vo gl" sound tends to go out of sync if upclocking is...

    Thanks for that link. I wouldn't have even considered a delay that long. I think it makes sense on desktops where power saving is not that important.

    I have determined that the dynpm switching...

    I guess the actual problem is that dynpm does not really know the workload. It simply polls the queue every 100ms. If by pure chance it happens to be empty enough times downclocking is initiated.
