    Phoronix: David Airlie Is Bringing OpenGL 4.2 To More R600 Gallium3D Hardware

    David Airlie is breathing some new open-source life into older Radeon GPUs with his "R600g-Rats" branch where he's bringing OpenGL 4.2 and other features to this older driver...

    Good news for me with my 5770 I'm curious if it is taking a similar approach to the one started with libSoftFloat https://github.com/Hopetech/libSoftFloat . I remember there being an article of that author submitting his work-in-progress to the mesa list.... But a cursory web perusal of the airlied repo suggests 'no' to me but I'm still not certain.

      It's nice to see they still care about r600.

          Cool! I still have some hardware with HD 6000/5000 GPUs that I want to experiment with.

            So nice to see things like this! Thanks to the fact the driver is open, Intel and AMD supports more OpenGL stuff under Linux than under Windows.

              6k series (all) has OGL 4.5 with both windows drivers and fglrx. Everything that has no hardware support is implemented in software.

                It's nice, but what is the max achievable OpenGL 4.x version for r600?

                  Great news for me as well with a HD 6000 series card!

                  On the official AMD website it says that for the lowest-end card HD 6450 it'd be OpenGL 4.1?
                  On Wikipedia however the series is labeled with OpenGL 4.4 for all cards of the series, so I believe the first one is outdatedā€¦

                  Cheers

                    I guess 4.4 on selected hardware But as article mentioned even this is with wip/rats/hacks
