    Phoronix: LLVMpipe Tests On Mesa Git With An Intel Core i7 Broadwell

    While LLVMpipe isn't intended for much more than a software fallback for modern Linux desktops and as an aid for debugging Mesa/Gallium3D drivers using a hardware-neutral driver, it can be interesting once in a while running benchmarks on this software driver...

    I wonder how much faster LLVMpipe (or any software rasterizer for that matter) could get with some serious development resources behind it.

      "For shits and giggles", always a great reason to do things. I have literally based my career on that system of thought.

        I they provide benchmarks
        really interesting

          should it run faster on HSA enabled kernels? or does it need special adjustments for it? the use may be rather poor, but just as a way of benchmarking or bugfixing, or just as proof of concept?

            Cool!
            It would be nice if WARP was open sourced. But that's not going to happen.

            Would be cool see a WARP vs LLVMpipe benchmark.
