      I agree, that's the one that I really reacted to as well!

        Same here. I think getting DAL in shape should be the biggest step in getting amdgpu-pro to run on stock kernel drivers. Cool.

          Hello,

          Can someone explain briefly what is a hardware composer and why we need it?

          Thanks

              So nvidia with their billions in profits are going to whine about how they can't support Wayland without eglstreams? Eglstreams that exists only because nvidia alone created it?

                It sounded to me like instead of implementing GBM they are still trying to argue.... So most likely not......

                  Of course. They can't implement GBM. Their proprietary driver is architected in such a way that GBM would get terrible performance, and they're not going to start over.

                  I'm actually looking forward to see what AMD comes up with next year. If Vega is good, or if prices come down to MSRP, I might switch over. AMD GPUs have the most interesting development going on right now.

                    I can't buy that argument now. Maybe in 2012 it would have been reasonable to suggest that, but this is 4 years later and they've earned billions since then.
