    OpenGL 3.0 Now Handled For All Of R600 Gallium3D

    Phoronix: OpenGL 3.0 Now Handled For All Of R600 Gallium3D

    Marek Ol??k has continued with his "R600g" driver hacking. The latest patch-set coming from this prolific independent contributor to Mesa allows for anti-aliasing and transform feedback for Radeon HD 6900 "Cayman" GPUs...

    The problem is that we don't know what comes after GCN and whether it will also fit into the same driver. We kinda had two choices :

    - stay with the current naming convention based on "first supported generation"
    - rename existing drivers as well and go with architecture-based names

    Agree that the transitional product naming (where high end SI parts are GCN and lower parts are VLIW) makes the current naming convention awkward for now.

    Yeah, we discussed various naming options, but the bottom line was that when a new driver component is started we know the name of the first generation it will support but rarely know the name of the last generation... so r600g (src/gallium/drivers/r600 IIRC) covers r6xx through NI and radeonsi covers SI through <who knows ?>...
    Wouldn't radeongcn have been a better name then radeonsi?

    Btw. compared to Intel graphics... I can play DDO (wine), open driver on 1 cylinder (low power profile ~299MHz), all settings to high.

    The guy is single handedly responsible for bringing AMD a lot of customers.
    All AMD customers who use Linux are thankful for his great contributions!
    Give him a donate button and you'll be surprised how many people will donate.
