    Phoronix: Broadcom's V3D Gallium3D Driver Nears Working Compute Shader Support

    Broadcom's next-gen "V3D" driver (formerly known as VC5) being used by some newer Broadcom hardware but more coming down the pipeline in the future has nearly working compute shader support...

    Eric Anholt is amazing. Hope to have a FOSS Pi soon without the dreaded firmware for GPU.

      I won't buy any more boards without UEFI, I have too many sitting in my closets because of the lack of standardized booting and separation of concerns.

      I also strongly dislike Pi actvists, and the unstated interests that the PI organization is serving. I'd pay more than cost for a chip, that isn't the newest, if it was fixing the ecosystem for the users. I won't do that for the interests of giant industry players, helping to keep the costs of general computing higher than it would otherwise be for everyone.

      The fact that somone has released proper UEFI/ACPI 64-bit firmware for the pi, and the foundation would rather pay for custom distro maintenance.... proves without any doubt, it was an intended choice. O, but it's for the students? What a load.

        Only non-enterprise ARM one that boots UEFI: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...n-source-fries
