    Does one of you kind forum members own a kaveri and can tell me if it can run for example "portal 2" or "sir, youre being hunted" or "Verdun"? In theory metro should work, is it playable?
    I'd like to know if its worth the effort fiddeling around with it ...

    (using archlinux btw and testing branch should be fine?!)
    use arch linux and with testing and lcarlier repo, for me is rock solid since forever

    So, pretty much all the source games I have tried work on the R600 driver, but that may or may not help you. I do know that Arch hasn't put in Mesa 10.1 for whatever reason, so you may have to use the lcarlier repo, which has mesa-git in it. The only other thing I can think of is that you might want to pull the latest kernel RC releases, as they might have improvements used in mesa-git.

    Aww, now I really feel bad for finishing Portal 2 on my HD7850 without a single problem... (Fedora 20, kernel 3.13.5, mesa 10.1)

    The RadeonSI driver is in a good shape and the performance should be close to r600g. I only tested Team Fortress 2 and it was smooth. However, these components should be fresh and built in this order, or obtained from other sources:

    - kernel
    - llvm
    - libdrm
    - mesa (make sure the llvm version reported by the configure script matches what you compiled)
    - glamor
    - xf86-video-ati
    - enable 2D tiling manually in xorg.conf
    - enable dynamic power management if it's not enabled by default
    - you can also set R600_DEBUG=hyperz to get a small performance boost

    not true for opensuse tumbleweed or even opensuse 13.1 at least for HD 7950

    Some of them only: to be exact, only GCN cards use RadeonSI. Older rebranded cards won't use RadeonSI.

    Default OpenGL 3.X not available ?

    hi all,

    I'm running Debian Jessie/Sid on a 7850 with the latest available packages, but OpenGL support is still being reported at 2.1 (kernel 3.13, mesa 10.1-rc2, llvm 3.4).
    Do I need to switch on something ?

    Switching to another distro is not an option

    Thanks

    It seems I've found the answer myself ! I need to upgrade for llvm 3.5 !
