    Default R600 Gallium3D Can Now Do OpenGL 3.0, GLSL 1.30

    Phoronix: R600 Gallium3D Can Now Do OpenGL 3.0, GLSL 1.30

    Marek Olk has made another exciting commit to the Mesa mainline Git repository this weekend... What he's accomplished now is making it possible to successfully advertise OpenGL 3.0 / GLSL 1.30 support within the R600 Gallium3D driver for the Radeon HD 2000 series and later...

    Thank you Marek (and thank you Michael)! I'm waiting for an update of oibaf's drivers to test OpenGL 3.0 features with my AMD 6570

    Is this actually adding full gl3 functionality, or merely advertising gl3 for debugging/testing purposes?

    Talk on IRC suggested that it might get included in 8.0 or possibly released as 8.0.1.

    we've had debugging enables for ages, look at the recent r600 commit history, where we've been finishing off all the underneath GL3.0 stuff

    The big items left are:

    EXT_transform_feedback needs upstream kernel patch, and it currently locks up on all R700 class hardware.

    cayman needs some more work to finish off a few integer opcodes (divide/mod).

    Its got 7620/7846 on piglit on my rv635 right now, a few of the remaining issues should be solved by Jerome's tiling work.

    "The R600g driver now joins Intel Sandy Bridge, Gallium3D Softpipe, and Nouveau NVC0-Fermi ..."

    Does this mean, with all the support from AMD, nouveau got there first?
