    Phoronix: Image Quality Comparison: Radeon Gallium3D vs. Catalyst

    Coming up in the next few days will be benchmarks of Mesa 8.0 with Morphological Anti-Aliasing (a.k.a. MLAA) plus some other imaging-oriented work/announcements to come in the near future. With that said, this weekend prior to leaving for Munich I ran some tests of the Radeon Gallium3D and Catalyst drivers when comparing the image quality...

    Catalyst is indeed rendering differently. But like I said before it's also possible that the bloom was originally written on Catalyst, without noticing that it relied on wrong driver behaviour.

    In that case a combination of a Nexuiz bug and a Catalyst bug causes it to be rendered correctly on Catalyst only.

    Looks like Catalyst rendering is the wrong one: nVidia blobs vs. Catalyst. As you can see, it's nVidia blobs + r300g/r600g vs Catalyst.

    jpeg and small pictures. There is no need to comment on this article. Every difference can be explained by this two things alone.

    Next time lossless and huge, please.

    AMD got it somehow working with their 12.1 blob by doing all hybrid stuff in userspace - the X server still thinks one of the two cards does everything. It's still a hack, but it seems a good one (however, nowhere as good as hybrid graphics should be).

Will we be seeing any improvements for PowerXpress support in the proprietary driver stack, and will AMD be cooperating with the Bumblebee developers to support this, or will the support be built into the open Radeon driver?
    Supporting hybrid graphics well is mostly limited by a lack of infrastructure in the graphics stack to properly support decoupled rendering and display. The driver side is pretty trivial. The infrastructure to support it without ugly hacks is starting to fall into place:
    1. The initial v1 dma_buf patches landed in 3.3. This allows sharing buffers between drivers
    2. Dave's "Prime" work builds on the dma_buf patches to allow buffer sharing between KMS drivers for things like hybrid graphics on laptops
    3. Reworking the X server to handle decoupled rendering and display

    Until all of that falls into place, it will always be a hack. There isn't really any magic involved. One GPU renders, the other GPU composites the result to the screen. Anyone can help out.

    So, how 'bout those rendering differences, eh?
    If anybody is still reading this thread, would be great to repeat the test with nouveau/nVidia blobs/intel/intel driver on Windows/llvmpipe to compare the Enemy screenshots. I think it's difficult to establish which one is wrong between Catalyst and r300g/r600g without other data.

    First off, maybe you can't actually grasp the differences between irony and sarcasm and how they actually apply to each other. But i've provided the relevant information, and it's NOT my problem that you are an ignorant FOOL.

    2nd. Who said anything about you being sub-human?? i didn't. And to be clear - i don't think of any human as being 'sub-human', and that includes the severely handicapped, or people with genetic deseases, etc, etc.... But obviously this is the kind of thing that you DO think about, otherwise you wouldn't have said it in the first place. - You mind is in the gutter, pal.... I would characterize you as being an ignorant ASSHOLE, who posts retarded offensive shit, day and night. As far as I am concerned Q, if you want to dish it out - you better be able to take it, you whiny little bitch... You keep saying 'Mental fascism" - are you sure that you don't mean PSYCHOLOGICAL FASCISM? either way, it doesn't matter. the best you can do is call us 'mental-fascists' and make ridiculous <false> statements that have NO bearing on REALITY. Most of the time, they aren't coherent enough to be legible..

    just so we are clear, there is no such thing as "Mental-Racism".... Did you mean Psychological discrimination??? if so, you'd be DEAD WRONG!! ~ What i am doing ~ we can call 'Asshole Discrimination'.

    ..and again, you are the one who posts/threads about your political views all over Phoronix, and in your mind, anyone who disagrees is a mental-nazi or whatever other nonsense that you can come up with in that fucked up head of yours. Give it up, Q.
    google helps a lot if i put in the words: Nazi Mental then it gives me back this: '''Nazi-Mental-Hygiene''' http://euro-med.dk/?p=25929 LOL!

    if i put Mental fascism/mental faschismus in google it gives me back: "Willkommen im "modernen" Faschismus Nazi- Mental-Hygiene " http://willkommenimfaschismus.blogsp...iene-will.html

    LOOL!

    if i put mental rasismus /mental rasism in then he gives back: Mental Health Discrimination/ political correctness / Scientific racism http://www.google.de/#hl=de&sa=X&ei=...iw=960&bih=531

    and the same in english mental racism : Racial Bias in Psychiatric Diagnosis/ correlation between racism, psychological conditions /

    same in english for mental fascism: -->Psychiatric Fascism/Nazi-Mental-Hygiene /FASCISM: A CHALLENGE TO MENTAL HYGIENE

    in germany its called : http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychohygiene Psycho-hygiene the english wikiopedia article about this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mental_health

He think I'm sick and he are the Doctor curing the world by cleaning it from sick sub-humans like me.

    but even the REAL NAZIS are smarter than him because THEY KNOW THEY ARE BAD NAZIS!
