I'm putting on a hat just so I can take it off for marcheu. That's some pretty impressive progress already!
thanks (for the reply and the codes)

Sorry I can't discuss future plans...

if some opengl feature is available in driver A and not B, does the game use those features to produce better, but sometimes slower graphics?
It makes me agree to read such stuff all the time here in this forum. We live all (or most of the readers here) in a capitalistic world, as long as this is true, most of us, live under direct fear of homelessness.

So even if the phoronix authors (or is it only one guy?) are not perfekt they invest much time for stuff most of us are interessted. I dont know other sites that invest so much time to get X and Kernel tests and news out. If you know sites that do this job better give me a hint about it.
But blaming somebody for making somehow money in a very customerfriendly way pisses me off.
I am for basic income grant, so that we stop with poorness in the western world at least, and also on the other countrys. But as long this is not there it is not fair to critisise someone to make money by helping people with free information.
To the intel driver, is there hope that over gallium the intel hardware especialy the tested samsung nc10 could maybe play 720p vides without problems? The old mesa plays only dia show at that resulition.

What player and options are you using? I could try with i915g and fix it if it's slow.

I'm primarily interested in seeing Intel chips move to Gallium due to the abundance of useful state trackers that are in development. Once Clover, OpenVG and the GL3 state tracker start to mature, being able to run them on my 965GM (with features not supported by the hardware running through optimized LLVM bytecode) would be very nice. No Can Do with i965c though, and i965g isn't really being worked on. i915 users should consider themselves lucky to get this nice boost despite the hardware being really, really ancient (even my 965GM is old, and it isn't getting that degree of work).
Now, if only Google would find a reason to productize a system using a Radeon R600 - R800 class GPU, and find occasion to either pour money into AMD's open source crew, or hire developers of their own to work on r600g...
