    Phoronix: Panfrost Gallium3D Driver Merged Into Mesa 19.1 For Open-Source ARM Mali Graphics

    The in-development Mesa 19.1 graphics stack release due out next quarter will feature a new Gallium3D driver... The initial Panfrost driver for open-source, reverse-engineered ARM Mali graphics hardware support of newer generations...

    *yay* this is pretty cool and exciting - I hope there is lots more Panfrost in the near future!

    now it's time to find a cheap ARM laptop to mess around with

        I am very interested to see how well this works on an Allwinner H6 ... I met get cheap ARM PCs with working graphics AND hardware accelerated media playback ... somewhere down the line

          Thanks for the link!

            Also, the Pinebook Pro is based on a chipset which is ostensibly supported by the Panfrost driver.

              FreeSync will only work with Mesa 19 (or git) and Kernel 5.0, right? Will those patches be backported? I ordered two FreeSync monitors and I'd love to test them. They will only arrive in march I assume, but I guess Mesa 19 will be later?

                No they don't get backported. Mesa 19.0 should be out by end of February.

                    This is exciting, I just hope this doesn't get abandoned like many of the other independent and reverse-engineered GPU drivers, like Lima or etnaviv.
