    Is this with or without the new patches?

    Does anyone know what values would be on the same hardware with direct rendering?
    I mean, what's the difference in speed with indirect rendering and this patch and direct rendering?

    To those making fun of Michael... he did clearly state it was a GLX patch and not a general Mesa patch. GLX is the "GL over X11" protocol which is mainly just used for creating contexts in the direct rendering world. It's only actually used for everything else when doing indirect rendering.

    While he probably should've clearly stated that it's for indirect/networked rendering in the title given how many readers of the site still don't seem to comprehend half the technology they're reading about daily, he certainly didn't claim this patch did more than it does.

    just to make sure im not lacking information. indirect rendering is softpipe right? if so, even llvm didnt get that on some freaking core i7 940. or would that be beneficial for wine maybe?
    accelerated indirect rendering has been available for the past five years or so.

    generally though, lack of direct rendering means lack of gl acceleration too, unless you've either forced indirect rendering, have screwed up your permissions, or are on a remote machine.

    Ah, I thought I might have been missing something like that.
