    Strangely enough, it would appear that Sandy Bridge can do quite nicely relative to Ivy Bridge for a given price point.

    From CPU benchmarks:

    Has it really been that long?! Sheesh. I had AMD in both HTPC and notebook. Now I have NVIDIA in HTPC and when I replace notebook I'll be shying away from AMD. Either Ivy Bridge/HD4000 or with...

    It depends what you are decoding and rendering. H.264 can be rather CPU intensive. Also, deinterlacing and other post processing can hammer a system without appropriate hardware.

    Slightly OT but I'm wondering if Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA will all have their collective asses kicked by ARMv8 (64 bit) based chipsets? My Samsung Galaxy SII (Exynos 4, ARMv7 core) delivers awesome...

    Christian König started H.264 work back in January I believe. It should be safe as long as it is left as a build option (akin to '--enable-texture-float' switch).

    It would be a pain in the ass having separate tarballs. No thanks. I well remember the days of building separate modules (Atheros (madwifi) or Prism54, etc) and do not miss them. Having the kernel...

    This article is not really newsworthy. It would be more interesting if he showed architecture specific numbers and object code sizes. This is what I see with 3.1. Source tree 1.2G uncompressed...

    The only significant thing to ever happen to the DDX driver is when it disappears into xorg state tracker in Mesa. Everything else is shite.

    Hopefully UVD is at least partially opened up. The NVIDIA blob with VDPAU works nicely but I'd like to use the OSS stack if possible.

    I'm curious -- what are you using 3D for?

    From this year's Linux graphics survey it looks like the top two wants/needs are improved 3D and video acceleration. The numbers for the two are almost...

    What is truly appalling is the lack of decent VDPAU support. I finally had to ditch my Radeon R600 for NVIDIA GT520 after waiting for over a year. Back to the blob.

    Oh... I agree that it's not fair at all. However, that is the state of affairs. Gallium drivers at this stage of the game cannot compete with binary blobs. I'd guess that another year will pass...

    I'm fairly satisfied with Gallium OpenGL performance as I don't use Linux for games. Standard definition video with H.264 is fine. The big issue right now is with deinterlace for MPEG2 1080i. I'm...
