    Default RadeonSI HyperZ Support Patches Made Available

    Phoronix: RadeonSI HyperZ Support Patches Made Available

    As shown in our recent open-source GPU driver comparison, the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver still has a long ways to mature to be more competitive against the R600g driver and the Catalyst binary driver. Fortunately, one of the major 3D performance-boosting features (HyperZ) appeared on Tuesday in mailing list patch form...

    Works, enabled by default.

    Pretty much everything that the hardware does is supported. All that's left is the missing extensions and optimisation.

    Happy users of radeonsi,
    pay attention to this:
    http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...er/049382.html
    and Marek final sentence:
    This improves Valve's Team Fortress 2 performance by 75%.

    Before: 20 fps
    After: 35 fps

    BTW the improvement only applies to the radeonsi driver.

    Marek
    As soon as it appears on mesa git we will see our radeonsi shine!!!

    It's partially done. Fast stencil clear and hierarchical stencil buffering are missing. It's also disabled in the cases where it is known to cause lockups for unknown reasons. r600g also uses linear HTILE instead of tiled HTILE and disables preloading, so there's a lot of room for improvements. I'd say it's 40% done for r600g.
