    Isn't it the same case for R400/R500?

    Not to the same extent. The r5xx family was the first to have the Avivo display pipe (significantly different programming from 4xx, no TV-out functionality in the overlay etc..) and it introduced a new fragment shader instruction set.

    There are differences between 6xx/7xx but they are smaller by comparison. We also implemented support for the two generations at the same time and mostly in the same code, which makes their level of support more likely to track.

    What's the status of r300g Hyper-Z? In the wiki is marked as MOSTLY (gallium), however it's disabled by default and when forcing it with RADEON_HYPERZ=1 it shows random patches in sauerbraten and other games (this is with my RV530, mesa from git, kernel 2.6.36).

    I think that fits the definition of MOSTLY ("working but with bugs", implying "more and/or more serious bugs than the rest of the code"), doesn't it ?

    Are you suggesting that the definition for MOSTLY should also include "enabled by default in master" rather than the unwritten "in master" rule used today ? I'm not necessarily disagreeing, just asking.

    I'd prefer to see it properly fixed in mesa .

    However it's OK with me leaving it with MOSTLY. Also I just added S3TC status to the wiki.

    Afaik it's disabled by default because you can only use it in one program at a time in pre-r600.

    I have a new laptop because of work, but my desktop, which was my only computer until a few months ago, has a Radeon 9600 (r350)

    Heh... An X800's a pretty decent part when you get to brass tacks- it's just not the same class as an X1900XT (Oh, how I wish I'd have had budget to have bought one of those on employee discount when I was working for AMD...) or any of the subsequent parts.
