    *Open source drivers for PowerVR graphics. I see more and more ARM adoption, but always bundled with PowerVR and its closed driver
    *Accelerated THEORA and DIRAC (and H264 ) playback.
    *OpenGL[ES] 2.0 on i945. I know the hardware doesn't support all features, but soon we'll need it even for WEB! This crappy underdeveloped gfx is REALLY widespread and with Intel actually putting this crap into the CPUs...

    4. Better overclocking support
    5. Bluray playback, and yes also with DRM enabled dics
    Fglrx already provides 3 and 4. Either with the aticonfig utility or through the AMD Display Library. They just haven't provided a nice GUI for this AFAIK.

    It would be great to have support for ATI PowerXpress in Linux!

    Lol, and exactly how many windows gpu drivers support that now?

    Yeah after all this time and linux still doesn't do Dx9 properly or integrate it.

    1) Evergreen support
    2) r600-r800 accelerated 3D to parity with nVidia in WINE
    3) some form of video acceleration

    Okay so here's what you do:
    1) go to the cgit interface on fdo which is cgit dot freedesktop dot org
    2) scroll down to ~jsindholt/mesa
    You'll see my VERY basic implementation of a D3D9 state_tracker for G3D
    Excellent, I'm glad someone has taken this up. Are you borrowing much from Wine for this? (I know most of their calls relay into WineD3D but many of the simpler calls don't, and the COM interfaces, headers etc. could be used).

    EDIT: Just seen your chat in #winehackers - if I had the time + knowledge to compile and test Gallium3D state trackers I'd help out. Any decent tutorials for this?

    +1

    but, as I explained on my previous post.. it ain't only a matter of drivers ... All the GNU/Linux environment (kernel, X, ... ) should evolve in order to allow feature parity

    At the moment I would like to see

    [AMD ATI Open Source]
    1. Some kind of working video decoding support by GPU which would ease CPU's bourdain
    2. Dynamic power scaling, voltages & clocks, also nice tool to tweak these values by user like me, i like undervolting more than default values <3

    [AMD ATI Fglrx]
    1. KMS support
    2. Super efficient video decoding which owns Nvidia's VPDAU, lets put UDV2 in good use!
    3. Better dynamic power consumption management, possibility to track how/when GPU & memory -clocks & voltages are scaled down
    4. Better overclocking support
    5. Bluray playback, and yes also with DRM enabled dics

    [NVDIA]
    1. Nvidia helping Nouveau team by releasing specs
    2. Power consumption, look at AMD ATI -case
    3. See bluray stuff from AMD ATI case -case
