    Phoronix: Intel Blackhole Render Support Lands In Mesa 20.1

    Intel Blackhole Render support was finally merged today for the new Intel "Iris" Gallium3D OpenGL driver default, the older i965 driver for pre-Broadwell hardware, and also the Mesa state tracker for Gallium3D drivers...

    Oh wow for a second I thought it was the name of another vulnerability... o-o

      It will be. We've never physically seen a blackhole to know how to properly render one. For the most part, everything involving blackholes is just theoretical.

      So, logically, if blackholes are theoretical and prediction is another word for theory, based on Intel's past results when branching out into predictions, rendering blackholes be the cause of many bugs to come.

          Black holes are not theoretical. We've even observed one visually. Yes, they're black, which means that they (nearly) don't emit any light (except Hawking radiation).

            We have a lot of empirical independently observed evidence for blackholes

              Y'all don't know what theory means

              A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena, especially one that has been repeatedly tested or is widely accepted and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomena.
              That literally describes black holes

              I almost don't want to post this just to see how many others come back with replies that suggest theories are guesses with no (visual) evidence

                Theory has multiple definitions depending on context.

                In light of your note "We've never physically seen a blackhole to know how to properly render one", it could easily be interpreted as the more laymen definition of the term. To be clear, the whole idea of physically seeing a blackhole is meaningless

                  I think the reason for merging this now is this mail in which Marek was asking about automating possibilities for PGO:

                    We did? I have no memory of this. I feel like I'd be able to recall an experience like that.
