    Phoronix: AMD R600g Still Tackling Hierarchical Z

    While patches have been around for more than one year to support Hierarchical Z on the ATI/AMD R600 open-source driver, the Gallium3D support still hasn't been merged...

    LLVM compiler+kernel 3,5rc1+pcie2+color tiling+HIZ+openGL3 shader language= crash

    maybe its the LLVM compiler but right now its not clear why it does crash.

    I do some tests
    HD 6770

    lightsmark 1024
    w/o patch | with patch
    240 | 330
    lightsmark 1920
    130 | 180
    But mesa with this patch 90% of time shows me black screen, only text and one scene is rendered correctly.

    R600_HYPERZ=1\0 don't change anything for lightsmark.

    Where can i download FEAR ?
    You can download a demo here

    http://www.gamershell.com/download_10167.shtml

    It's a Windows game, but works fine on Linux with wine and r600 drivers, except when run with R600_HYPERZ=1.
