    Aspry is the same guys who did the Civ 5 port, i believe, and I've only heard good things about the ports they've done.
  2. Yeah, the game was never very optimized, which is...

    Yeah, the game was never very optimized, which is why you knew it was bad when people were talking about how much worse the supported version was than WINE.
  3. It's an interesting concept, but...

    It's going to be tough to get all the different distros to agree on a common way of doing things like this. Really tough. Not sure i see it as feasible or not, but i guess they're free to try. And I...
  4. Yeah, me too. The conclusion that they don't...

    Yeah, me too.

    The conclusion that they don't match up with the radeon OSS drivers is pretty obvious, but if you look at the scores you are generally getting 60+ fps results on nouveau.

    That's...
  5. Whoops, sorry about that. I actually did read...

    Whoops, sorry about that.

    I actually did read through the whole thing, but somehow skipped over that one.

    In my defense, that should really be the highlighted test, rather than one buried deep...
  6. There's already a GL3.2 version of Metro around....

    There's already a GL3.2 version of Metro around. You realize this is the same game, just re-released with a new engine, right?

    There's no reason at all to get this game if you can't see the...
  7. No one is talking about a fork. If you don't...

    No one is talking about a fork. If you don't change anything, it's not a fork - it's a copy.

    And even if you do maintain a set of local changes, as long as you keep trying to upstream them it's...
  8. This testing scheme of Michael's is pretty bizarre

    How can you still not have the most important test of all? A sitting idle doing nothing test.

    Trying to test what power does during other benchmark runs can be interesting, i guess, but it brings...
  9. The truth is that toolkits will take care of 99%...

    The truth is that toolkits will take care of 99% of the issues by abstracting away the window system underneath. But 1% of a million different apps is still a very significant undertaking.

    One of...
  10. Uhh, where was intel referenced in that...

    Would you kindly try reading through the thread to the origin of a discussion first before making such a comment? This is what started the discussion:



    So yes, yes they were. When in fact any...

    Because the drivers are using LLVM whether you like it or not, and trying to maintain compatibility with numerous versions of a fast-moving target used by numerous other packages on your system is...
  12. I don't really see any technical problems that...

    I don't really see any technical problems that haven't been resolved, or at least not many. The real blocker seems to be process/packaging issues.

    It's insane to link to upstream LLVM the way the...
  13. Hint: no one was comparing AMD to Intel...

    Hint: no one was comparing AMD to Intel performance, it was just the importance of single-threading performance.

    Try running that test with a 2.5Ghz processor on 8 cores vs a 4.5Ghz processor (of...

    There's a pretty big difference between these 3 statements.





    That's what people are commenting on, you said the 1st when the truth is clearly one of the 2nd or 3rd.

    Maybe you aren't a...
  15. I really don't understand why you like PNaCL. Why...

    I really don't understand why you like PNaCL. Why wouldn't i just write a native program rather than trying to insert it into a browser? Why is it any better than Flash, Silverlight, or ActiveX, all...

    Who's excluding users? No one is saying x86 hardware should be banned, just that ARM is likely good enough for a significant chunk of people now.

    Personally, I'm one of those power users who...
  17. That's a really general question and difficult to...

    That's a really general question and difficult to answer. There are probably dozens of bugs that could cause this and we've got no idea which one you are hitting.

    That said, the new decorations...
  18. Yeah, because if there's one thing the web needs...

    Yeah, because if there's one thing the web needs to be better it's more proprietary plugins running native code.
  19. Sure, but supporting PPAPI is probably a boatload...

    Sure, but supporting PPAPI is probably a boatload more work than simply finishing up Shumway at this point - although likely less risky since we at least know it can work and Shumway is more...

    At 50Ghz you're most likely either going to run into power issues (too much in too small a space) or speed-of-light issues trying to keep the clock in sync across an entire massive die.
