    Phoronix: Open-Source Graphics Driver Updates For Linux 5.11 Have Lots Of Intel + AMD Presents

    While there are a lot of driver improvements throughout, as usual those on Intel HD/UHD/Iris/Xe Graphics and AMD Radeon graphics with their first-rate open-source graphics drivers have a lot of grand improvements to find with the forthcoming Linux 5.11 cycle...

    i hope they do something about intel 3gen/4gen graphic driver for one last time

      Feels so good to be an Intel / AMD user these days!
      I feel a bit bad for Nvidia users, but just a bit, since most of the time they say they are happy with the proprietary driver.

        maybe header defines should not be counted as code for a more reasonable overview?

          Totally agree. I highly recommend doing a side by side visual comparison of rendering quality, most times it's subtle, you have to stare at it look for little differences, but sometimes it's blatant. Plus nVidia drivers have so many multi-monitor bugs and drawbacks (some literally decades old), I can't see how anybody with more than one monitor could possibly stand using nVidia hardware on linux, it's just too unbearable...

            Neither airlied or agd5f's drm-next branches are working for me (including what's been submitted for the merge window) on my Tonga or Raven systems

            https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/1405

            Bisected back to

            Code:
            f5a89a5cae812a39993be32e74c8ed7856b1e2b2 is the first bad commit

            drm/amdgpu/ttm: use multihop
            
            This removes the code to move resources directly between
            SYSTEM and VRAM in favour of using the core ttm mulithop code.

              Nvidia multi-monitor works fine on Fedora, I've no issues with my EVA Maxwell 960 GTX. Ubuntu 18.04 also works fairly well. CentOS Stream 8, otoh... well, sometimes both monitors light up at boot.

                Adding upstream gm45 h264 decoding support. I wait so long ...
                Everything else works fine.. or?

                    I must say I am a happy Nvidia proprietary driver user... I dont have to hack, cut, compile or beg Linux to run with it, it just works. As an added bonus I also get hardware that tends to kick AMD in the teeth. Though this latest gen from AMD is much more impressive and I explored converting, but unfortunately they still have nothing compared to CUDA and thats where I spent the vast majority of my time these days.
