        If they're doing work for glthreading, they'll probably look into seeing how this feature affects the same list of games that have already been profiled. Though it'll probably take some time to go through all games and make sure it doesn't cause any weird rendering glitches.

          I figure this would have a much bigger performance improvement in Crossfire (in the event it ever becomes implemented).

            These drirc options (also environment variables) can, in my opinion, be enabled for most games to get even more performance benefit:
            - radeonsi_assume_no_z_fights
            - radeonsi_commutative_blend_add

            They are not enabled by default because we need strict conformance, but strict conformance is usually not necessary for gaming.

                Hello Marek and Nicolai ( ;-) ),
                I've forgotten to mail (with my tb), that I've enabled both options (in /etc/environment) _daily_ scince first day of testing.
                NO artifacts noticed so far...

                    could those options then be enabled automatically when we fire up steam? Is this possible?
