    Phoronix: Pitoiset: Bindless Textures For Mesa/RadeonSI

    Samuel Pitoiset, one of the developers on Valve's open-source Linux driver team focused on better Radeon support, has posted a set of 26 patches for changes needed to support ARB_bindless_texture and is fully implemented for the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver...

    The title is "ARB_bindless_texture: round one (GLSL)" which means this first series *only* implements ARB_bindless_texture for the GLSL compiler. Other parts will come later once this one is merged. Thanks!

      This is good.
      Another thing DiRT Rally is available in humble bundle monthly this month for $12.

        Out of curiosity, what is the performance improvement in those feral games you tested?

          It is not implemented yet, only the GLSL shader compiler component - according to hakzsam though I haven't looked at the series myself yet.

            I don't think that's true

            Because ARB_bindless_texture [1] is a massive feature which requires a bunch of changes in Mesa, I splitted the whole series in order to help reviewers. The first one adds all GLSL bits to the compiler.
            I took it as: it's all implemented in some ways, but they're going to focus on one part at a time to review/improve it and then commit, before moving on the next part.

                I can't say for now, it's implemented but the RadeonSI part needs performance improvements.

                  Looking forward to all this, that may finally lend to me playing DE:MD
