    Still no OpenGL 4.6 support. 😢

      Have we seen graphics benchmarks of the software rasterizers using some of those multi-socket Xeon and Epyc servers? I'm still a bit curious to see if games can actually become playable if given enough CPU cores.

        Still no RADV freesync support, a fully working patch exists but gaming people are forced to compile it.

          I'm in a similar situation with the iris driver, I want to try it out with Dolphin (emulator) and some Steam Play/Proton/Windows games, but the community repository I'm using, which is based off git master, doesn't have it for some reason. Maybe iris requires a new kernel feature to work, so compiling of it was turned off for openSUSE 15.0?!

            Debianxfce, shut the fuck up. Submit patches or fuck off you idiot.

              The Padoka ppa mesa git cosmic version has the latest Iris code, so you can use Debian testing Xfce or ubuntu cosmic.

                I'd rather figure out why khnazile's repo doesn't have it and/or see how difficult compiling it myself is than have to reboot and manage two installations for such a minor thing.
                Who knows, maybe I'll even contribute if I can manage to compile it, use it, find my way through the code, understand C/C++... oh jeez, well my minimal experience with Rust might help

                  Yes, Iris requires Linux 4.16:
                  https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/...e_requests/283
                  Leap 15.0 is at 4.12.
