    Good on Valve. Even though I have no AMD cards around right now (and it's unlikely I will, I'm waiting for Intel cards to come to market), I still want to support Valve because they try to make gaming better by improving the infrastructure.

      The Radeon and AMDGPU kernel drivers are what I was referring to there. I hadn't finished my coffee yet and remembered the wrong name.

        They only "care" because that's what it takes to keep their business model atm. and the only reason for that is the other monopoly, Microsoft.

        As soon as they'd gotten true dominance they'd stop caring whatsoever. Companies only care about revenue.

          I sure understand that. I'm jumping back and forth between Shanghai and NA time so need morning coffee at least twice a day now

            What does ACO stand for? Advanced Compiler Optimizations?
