    Oh also, moved out of Green Camp after 10 years of 100% Green.

    Red Camp is the shiznit these days with MESA-Git, Gallium Nine Wine kicking super DX9 azz, and not having to wait for devs to fix nvidia GDM "Something has gone wrong" .so linker issues every Gnome release.

    Done a bit of AMD RX 480 Gaming Benchmarks here:

    Gifted my 2 GTX 970's to family as they're EOL to me since we'll be a 100% AMD GPU family in a year or two.

    The stability of a professional platform and gaming rig is nice. Been using AMD DAL Kernel 4.7 (Or AMD DC Kernel I guess it's called now,) HDMI, [email protected] and the likes are really nice.

    The funny thing about SuperTuxKart is that it's capped at 30 FPS on both [email protected] and [email protected], not even vsync = off in the config.xml seems to allow a higher FPS, sad because I wouldn't mind benching this app on RX 480 to show what it can do.

    I think the support is in place until the new solution arrives, not instead of the new solution.

    I believe the agreement was for Nvidia and the community to work towards a new API that solves all the remaining issues. Since we haven't heard of that API being anywhere near finished (is it even started?), there won't be a driver anytime soon.

    Will this allow bumblebee users to finally be able to use Vulkan?

    We have this so far, not sure if any discussions or implementations of it exist: https://github.com/cubanismo/allocator
