    Phoronix: Qualcomm Adreno 600 Series Support Submitted For Linux 4.19

    Following the main DRM features update for Linux 4.19, a secondary pull request has now been submitted that offers up the nine thousand lines of code for bringing up the Adreno 600 series support for supporting the very latest Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs...

        There seems to be a slow shift over last couple years. Initially it was upstream support for 96boards (which is complete for db410c, which includes camera, audio, video dec/enc, display, gpu, wifi, etc.. and pretty far along for db820c).. but this was mostly upstreaming after the fact (ie. after the chip already came out). Afaiu, qcom+google+linaro have been working on upstreaming sdm845 since before the chip was released.

        Last few linaro connect's they've been presenting on progress of getting various functionality upstream. I think they realize their old model of having 1-2mloc delta from upstream wasn't sustainable when it came to moving things to a new kernel.

          Yeah I guess hoping they've seen the light of GNU is a bit too much

          Sounds about right. Though I have no idea how Qualcomm plans to market >$600 12" laptops that perform circa the ~$300 range solely on the merit of battery life... I guess if it's light enough it would work out as a good pdf reader or something... Ok I admit I'm not their customer

          Regardless, good to know they're getting more FOSS now that they're started to release semi-laptop grade SoCs. Hopefully you'll have lots of bug submissions stacking up in the near future

            I would expect an arm laptop to be fanless which means slimmer, less noise, less heat. Surely all recent phones have had somekind of thermal issues, but given the larger dissipation area of a laptop it should not have these kind of problems I hope

              I hope that older SoCs like the Snapdragon 800 will be coming eventually.
