    Vulkan with DOTA from 4.10 to 4.12 improves A LOT. I do not know if this will happen too with Nvidia GPUs, but it is worth one or several benchmarks in my opinion.

      any phoronix reader knows that nicolai works on stuff which is used by radv, so he can't be fulltime radeonsi dev

        You argue with Dave about who works on what in this domain, you're brave!

            This is not exactly a fair statement. radv directly leverages the work we've done in the kernel to improve performance for all UMDs and indirectly leverages the work we've done in radeonsi. The fact that we provide such good resources (code, developers, documentation, etc.) is what facilitates other developers working on our hardware. This is how open source works. The rising tide raises all boats.

I don't work full time on radv, but it's quite a lot of my time at present, Bas works spare time, and we've had a few contributions outside of that (Fredrik and Feral).
              Wow, it's insane how much stuff you guys get done... I guess "The Mythical Man Month" and Brooks' Law is still very valid when it comes to software development. I've worked as a developer for 10 years now (wow, just last month!), in 4 different places, and I've seen so many people get so little done, so many times... Even though everybody is working full-time and are busy a 100% of the time! Even working overtime...

                They did copy some of the Vulkan code from the Intel Vulkan driver. Copy paste programming is fast and does not need a lot of resources. I have ported a GSM phone to a windows device driver in 1990s, I managed to compile it but a Pentium 60Mhz PC was too weak to run it. I did know this beforehand but I must do what the boss says.
