    Phoronix: Marek Takes On MSAA Gallium3D Improvements

    Just days after fixing R300 Gallium3D HyperZ support for better performance and recently making other Radeon driver improvements, Marek Ol??k is onto something new: working on Multi-Sample Anti-Aliasing improvements within Gallium3D...

    Maybe, maybe not. I agree that the shaders are more flexible but then an ASIC is always more efficient. Anyhow I'd LOVE to finally see video acceleration on these GPUs, especially since it would be awesome for E-350 style HTPC.


    And I donated.

    I don't think we want this. I think we want efficient GPU accelerated decoder for any codec in question.
    Clearly, its possible, but AMD will immediately request removal of this code from open driver. Sucks. IMHO.

If AMD can't really do it for legal reasons, maybe somebody outside an enterprise could. Just thinking about possibilities.

    /edit:
    And it's actually not a donation. He works and you give him money. Unless Marek is a non-profit organization it is not a donation and he has to pay taxes for the money he gets (I hope he is doing this, I don't want him in jail ;-)).
    Glad you decided to donate too, how much is acceptable for you?
    Also, I will know no more than anyone else reading the thread, so I hope it answers your question. Now, please answer mine

    To understand this joke just imagine this: What if I?m not the drug "dude" you think because using caffeine and other stuff as medicine is no abuse at all.

    What if Marek really do drug abuse to write the driver? Just an rhetorical question. You don't need to answer.

    Back to your question: What if I sell my drugs to send Marek money and he just buy my drugs from me with my money to write the driver on drugs? Isn't this a pointless Circle circuit argumentation?

    And don't even try to arguing with "drugs" again if you don't get anything what I?m pointing out.
    Well, I am not Marek, so the question is not rhetorical, its pointless... Marek didn't respond if he accepts drugs, but he sure accept paypal donations. So its clear alternative..

    So you jump in or opt out?

    And I think you just do a overreaction about the drug joke.
    Most of the people did not understand this joke because its a "internal".
