    Phoronix: Pengutronix Gets Open-Source 3D Working On MX8M/GC7000 Hardware

    We've known that Pengutronix developers had been working on i.MX8M / GC7000 graphics support within their Etnaviv open-source driver stack from initial patches posted in January. Those patches back at the start of the year were for the DRM kernel driver, but it turns out they have already got basic 3D acceleration working...

    Is it just me or the video looks like a bad trip?...

      I would like to note that much of the userspace OpenGL driver implementation and all necessary reverse-engineering was done by the original Etnaviv project founder Wladimir J. van der Laan. My/Pengutronix part was really focused on the basic i.MX8M platform support on the upstream kernel (the demo runs on 4.16-rc2) and getting the necessary etnaviv kernel driver bits into place.

        Aand... we found the hippie.

        More seriously, yeah it does look a bit confusing with the rock and the movie running together.

          It would be nice if they worked on Arcturus GC8000 released by Verisilicon after they bought out Vivante. It supports OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenGL 4.0, Vulkan etc. Not sure what hardware if any ships with it though: http://www.verisilicon.com/IPPortfol...raphicsIP.html

            Isn't the GC7000 series Vulkan capable?

            Thought it's "just" a matter of a Linux driver.
