    Didn't know about x32 so far. The best usage case I can come up with is threaded workload that does not depend on any system libs. And let this x32 threads run beside a 64bit main thread to get some...

    There did published infos on the principle framework. For example: http://www.amd.com/Documents/Mantle_White_Paper.pdf (Interessting stuff starts at page 5-6)

    Also they have working drivers and a...

    Binding is actually a characteristic of OpenGL/D3D. I'm not sure how you make the connection to Mantle and even call it outdated, esp. when you self say there is nothing to see about Mantle so far?...

    Fount it! Was an xorg-edger ppa what wasn't removed cleanly.

    I use a 7870 (Pitcairn) with Xubuntu 14.04 and still stuck with GL3.1.

    Is it just not yet supported on my HW even with LLVM 3.4.2? Or can I somehow get it to run 3.3?

    There are already solutions to that like ARB_shader_precision (Core in 4.1)
    Or in case of GLES there are precision specifiers that relax precision to increase performance.

    Gaming or nongaming should not make a difference. You want a performant, low latency, easy to mutlithread, good to debug API in all cases.

    The APIs don't specify how exactly the commands are send to the GPUs.
    Most OpenGL/Direct3D implementations collect your drawcalls and other commands. After some accumulation they send this package...

    I think this will be implemented so that applications don't even have to know its there. It's basically just adaptive vsync except that the PC/GPU triggers the monitor redraw start.

    Most smaller changes won't need a rebuilding of the shader binarys. Also if we ever end up with matured OSS drivers the frequency of changes that need rebuilding will drop dramatically.

    I use the oss driver on my 7870 in linux. springrts runs fine, tesseract runs fine except for the sky because of one shader that causes crashes by register spilling, and that is still broken. But the...

    The file size of a shader or the shader binary doesn't matter. Most likely a single texture will be bigger then all your shaders together.
    You don't stream shaders! Well stupid(IMO) drivers often do...

    Drivers cache compiled shaders and you also can do it yourself with ARB_get_program_binary. You only have to compile on the first start. The only disadvantages are that you can't control the threads...

    Did you try the oibaf ppa?
    Works very well with my 7870 (Also Pitcairn bases like your 7850). I did not notice more fan noise, but maybe thats just because I have a pretty silent one.

    The OSS driver forces vsync on by default. But unlike fglrx it supports dynamic vsync and...
