you probably already know about the mali/Lima open stack development http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTA1NjI
so that would be our preference gfx kit to buy rather than IMG if you were to pick a base ARM Gfx soc to hack on in the coming months; to help it progress as fast as possible, there's no sign or real hope that IMG or an independent dev will bother to reverse engineer any of their Gfx blocks, as it stands mali/Lima seems the right choice this year.
i forget, do Texas Instruments
have any Mali 400 + SOC block in this years existing SOC refreshes ( we have to wait for
Mobile World Congress next week to know for sure i guess) to give you and all the other professional TI devs some incentive to hack lima or even help get ARM directly involved in writing and submitting GIT code patches, giving info and helping this lima initative to make the first ever fully functional open ARM driver this year, OC if all the
Linaro devs with mali kit releases were to help out lima too that would be even better
anyway thanks for posting and dont be a stranger, invite all your other devs to come and contribute and correct any info contributors might get slightly wrong now and then here, and remember to have fun
