Phoronix: OpenGL 3.3 Support Lands For RadeonSI Gallium3D
A few days ago we talked about OpenGL 3.3 support coming to the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver in the form of mailing list patches, but as of a few hours ago the work has been mainlined inside Mesa. The next Mesa release will feature OpenGL 3.3 RadeonSI support!..
I wonder why nobody has asked for subroutine uniforms yet, they seem incredibly useful to me.. hopefully they will be implemented before tessellation shaders.
By the way, it seems that LLVM >=3.5 is required to have all these latest bells and whitles.
That being said, you can have it today if you build from source:
Code:OpenGL vendor string: X.Org OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD PITCAIRN OpenGL core profile version string: 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.1.0-devel (git-50762f4) OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 3.30
my livecd for opengl 3.3 tests.
I currently use Ubuntu along with oibaf's PPA and just download a kernel from the mainline PPA. I'd love to have a similar kind of setup available on openSUSE.
