    Phoronix: Mesa Needs Some Last Minute Patches For Polaris

    Earlier this week there were some last minute AMDGPU DRM kernel patches submitted that were needed for AMD's imminent Radeon RX 480 "Polaris" launch while today some last minute Mesa patches have materialized...

    One idea for a teaser article is to present test HW and test profiles

      I hopefully this can make it into the 480 benchmarks

        I can't wait for the 480. I really need some GPU acceleration for h265 on Linux, as well as amdgpu support to allow GPU acceleration on video editing with let's say, blender. Heck, I might pick up two and encoded my entire media library in hevc. Plus the games, of course. My 7970 is feeling old!

          Blender does accelerate video editing with OpenCL?

            Blender seems to support OpenCL for Cycles rendering engine https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/OpenCL

            He probably means HandBrake, which is also OpenCL-capable (opencl 1.1, only on AMD and Intel GPUs) on some operations (not whole transcoding) http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTM3NTg

            But what he says appears to be mostly uninformed garbage.

              Yes, I know about the cycles renderer (wished Michael would include it in his tests).
              Blender in fact also does video editing/compositing, so it might be possible but I've never heard of OCL acceleration there, however I've not been using blender for a while.
