    Default AMD Posts A Horde Of New 3D GPU Documentation

    Phoronix: AMD Posts A Horde Of New 3D GPU Documentation

    While AMD has published open-source Radeon GPU driver code for modern graphics processors up through the latest Sea Islands parts, they have fallen behind on publishing 3D GPU programming specifications and programming guides for the more modern hardware. Fortunately, they have now caught up...

    Best news I've heard today.

    I look forward to what the next few months bring.

    Alright! Let the battle begin of who publishes their docs faster - AMD or nVidia? ;-D

    NVIDIA once declared they would contribute compiler code to llvm and ... you know

    Me too, AMD has a good head start also. :-)

    What a sweet start into the day. Evergreen also... good. I use it on a dedicated card. And quite a bunch of APUs basically use Evergreen tech inside.
    Sad that I do not have a screenshot from http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature/ years ago. It was totally in autumn colours (red, orange, yellow). Now it looks like spring with all the green and only few blossoms of colour inbetween.

    Adarion, you can feel like getting into a Delorean and take that screenshot today... Check this out (Way Back Machine): http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://...RadeonFeature/

    Thumbs up

    I think I will throw some money on AMD again. Maybe even rethink the MiniITX server from ATOM to Fusion...

    I've got a MiniITX Llano at home (A6-3500, 45-65w?) that's been running for ~2 years, and it's been very reliable. It's currently running MythBuntu with an HDMI output carrying video/audio to the receiver and has been running the open-source radeon drivers since it was built. With DPM and UVD working, this machine is silent and keeps up with everything I ask of it (although I've been thinking of upgrading from a single to a dual tuner)... I can only imagine how well Trinity/Richland would perform.

    Although if you were already looking at Atom, I'm assuming you're looking for something even lower power yet (Jaguar?). I've been thinking of something similar for my next NAS upgrade (the current Phenom II 720 is definitely overkill).

    Start encrypting your NAS drives with several chained algorithms, like AES->Blowfish->GOST->3DES and it's no longer overkill
