    Phoronix: While Still Waiting For Broadcom VideoCore 5 To Surface, There Appears To Be VC6

    The VC5 open-source Linux graphics driver stack has been under heavy development now the past nearly year while not yet seeing any major ARM SBCs or other products making use of this Broadcom VideoCore V (VC5) 3D hardware, which now supports OpenCL and Vulkan. While many are holding out hopes for eventually seeing a next-gen Raspberry Pi with this beefed up VideoCore, it appears there is already a VC6 in the works too...

    Quick search vor VC6 in that repo: https://github.com/anholt/mesa/searc...&q=vc6&type= -- looks really promising!

      Phoronix sometimes cracks me up because the smallest detail will be caught and it seems to be more common that Phoronix will beat a project to its own launch announcement than it is for it to follow an announcement. And then you often get comments here from some core developer of the low level thing being talked about, which is how you know you're reading the best news source.
