    Phoronix: Lima Gallium3D Picks Up A Buffer Object Cache, Partial Updates

    The Lima Gallium3D driver for supporting Arm Mali 400/450 graphics hardware within Arm SoCs has picked up a few performance optimizations...

    Worth mentioning that any improvements to Lima have an impact on the ability to use the original Pinebook without proprietary firmware, and to use the PinePhone with less proprietary firmware. The progress Qiang Yu has made is remarkable, since this was basically an abandoned project last year.

      Nice too see Lima improving..
      Also nice to see Credrus driver( for video..), with Jens Kuske, Manuel Braga, Andreas Baierl, leveraging its development..

        Original pinebook will likely be getting a upgrade kit to switch the A64 SBM to the pinebook pro's Rockchip RK3399 SBM. They are just doing some testing on thermal solutions since they can't sink the heat to a metal case like in the pinebook pro. The goal is to reduce the amount of pinebooks going to the landfill.

        That said, the pinetab and pinephone are probably going to be using the A64 for a length of time. It's really exciting to see these optimizations. Honestly, there's nothing wrong with older hardware, especially for low-end tasks like this. Pine64 is the tech company the world has been needing for so long.
