    Phoronix: The 12 Big New Features Of Mesa 12.0

    With Mesa 12 now having been branched with plans to release next month, the code is under a feature freeze as developers turn to fixing bugs ahead of this stable release. With no more major features planned, here's an overview of the new features for Mesa 12.0...

    Sorry to post that here too, but :
    if you get your hands on a high core count CPU, I'd love to see OpenSWR benched. Will be hyped until AVX512 gets available, as Larrabee could have been quite the revolution in rendering (according to both Carmack and Sweeney anyway).

      Sorry if double post, seems to have disappeared (or waiting moderation, but can not retrieve it anyhow...)
      If you get your hands on a high core count CPU, I'd love to see OpenSWR benched. It'd satisfy my hype (already 8 years waiting) for what Larrabee could have been (until AVX512 gets there eventually, to see the hardware side of it too).

          Great! Hope to see this in the next version of openSUSE Leap :-)

            OpenGL 4.3 is now available for Intel i965 (with Broadwell hardware and newer), Nouveau NVC0 (for Fermi and Kepler), and RadeonSI (when using LLVM 3.9 SVN).
            For RadeonSI, it also needs a recent kernel [4.7] exposing the needed registries for some of the GPUs.

                The secret to rendering 3D graphics for FREE. Proprietary driver developers HATE him...

                  It does make me wonder what Intel is going to do about people with Haswell and previous generation machines. Its not that those machine are decade old, obsolete technology.

                    Stupid question: why does RadeonSI need LLVM 3.9 but not Intel 965 or Nouveau NVC0?
