    Phoronix: Lavapipe Continues Advancing CPU-Based Vulkan - Now Supports Transform Feedback

    Lavapipe (nee Vallium) continues picking up more functionality for this software-based Vulkan implementation just as LLVMpipe is to OpenGL...

    I realized where the project may be super useful: reverse debugging with mozilla/rr. It doesn’t support debugging of everything what wants direct GPU access, so software OpenGL an Vulkan should be a salvation

        It should technically work anywhere LLVM & Mesa work together, don't expect to be able to play games, but you will be able to run a desktop (in the same way llvmpipe is a fall back for OpenGL) once compositors switch to Vulkan

          Would be interesting to see a performance comparision with Kazan

            It would be interesting. I suspect more people will be working on Kazan since it targets much more applications, naturally that does not imply that it would perform better hence the curiosity.
