Freedreno 3D Driver Hits Rendering Milestone
While not as far along as the ARM Lima driver or even OpenFIMG, the open-source reverse-engineered "Freedreno" driver for Qualcomm's Snapdragon graphics hardware has hit a rendering milestone. There's also a small ARM Mali driver update.
Rob Clark, the Texas Instruments developer who is working on this new driver in his spare time after an interesting launch, is back to making some interesting progress.
Rob has the first successful renders on Freedreno in conjunction with his FDRE library. This isn't a glxgears (well, eglgears) milestone or anything too exciting in the 3D space, but he's basically to rendering a quad-flat, triangle-quad, and a triangle-smoothed. This is similar to where the reverse-engineered ARM Mali driver was back in February in Brussels.
