    Phoronix: Lavapipe CPU-Based Vulkan Ported To Windows

    Lavapipe as Mesa's CPU-based Vulkan driver implementation akin to LLVMpipe for OpenGL can now run on Microsoft Windows...

    Excited to see if the RADV on Windows effort offers an argument to have a common userspace for AMD GPUs based on Mesa rather than their other thing; maybe it also starts looking good to Intel.

      If you're gonna pipe lava into windows I hope you have good fire insurance.

      But RADV on Windows...I honestly thought we'd have an AMD control panel on Linux before that happen.

              That's misleading. Someone is porting the shader compiler and related bits in radv to work on Windows. It doesn't mean you can start running games on it.

                will radv on windows support what amd customers use on windows(directx)?
                btw, radv even on linux doesn't support radeon kernel driver, only amdgpu. and i guess there's no amdgpu kernel driver on windows

                  well, considering amd control panel on linux makes zero sense, future of radv on windows doesn't look bright to you

                    Its not a runtime port, they want to use aco and vulkan api for off-line compioe
