    That's not actually what I said - I said we would probably need to stay away from debugging emulator code. If someone else investigates what is happening at emulator level then comes back and says "the driver is doing X when I expect it to be doing Y" (eg with a non-emulator test case) I'm sure we would fix that.

    I doubt our competitors are doing any more than that - it's just a matter of what GPU the emulator and WINE developers happened to be using during development.

    Thanks for clarifying. I'm sure the emulator devs having Nvidia cards plays a big roles as well.
    P.S. I wasn't trying to misrepresent what you said or anything like that.

      Understood... I didn't think you were trying to misrepresent either.

        This decision was not arbitrary, customers were buying much cheaper GeForce cards in servers instead of Quadro cards and Nvidia was loosing big money. Linux users were hit as a side effect.

          And this is why AMD needs to attract developers to Radeon. And SR-IOV support would make a card more interesting for development, as you can run stuff concurrently in VMs (e.g. compare emulator with VM behavior in real time).

            I'm impressed, really, this is the only GPU that I've actually wanted to buy since the 980-Ti, and I couldn't afford the 980-Ti until it got a 50% price cut when the 1000 series finally came from nvidia; which made it a better deal than anything AMD was offering at the time. But this... A card that not only serves all my performance needs with a 4k screen, but also my Linux needs? Gonna be hard for me to avoid buying this.

              Over at Level1Techs, someone posted their
              Code:
              # lspci -vvv
              output.
              Unfortunately the PCI descriptor did not contain
              Code:
              Capabilities [...] Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV)
              So it looks like, at least with the current firmware, no SR-IOV.

                Wow this is the card I have been waiting for for my 4k gaming. I was after a 1080 Ti, but the prices kept going up as they sold out. I couldn't quite stomach the price of the newer NVIDIA cards, now AMD pull this out and it runs on open source drivers! Sold and Pre-ordered...
