    Blender is doing great! I still miss the OpenCL support in Cycles though.

      I would hope Blender would support HSA now that I have AMD A8-7600 APU in my newly-built computer.

      Sequencer Backdrop... I wonder what does that do...

        SVG

        SVG exporter sounds pretty awesome!

        I wonder how well it works...

          Once they move from a monolithic kernel to a microkernel distributed design [AMD is working on it for them to test it out] both OpenCL and even CUDA performance will improve.

          Their design is wrong.

          LuxRenderer moved to micro and the AMD Omega driver flies with OpenCL.

            Hi,

            I wonder myself how that CPU can perform, with linux?
            and how it perform in games, etc?
            have you any idea of bogomips on it?

            cat /proc/cpuid

            and see bogomips section...I am interested in this new way of geting cpu + graphics integrated

            thanks

              I absolutely love blender's release schedule. It's so darn fast
              Also, there are frequent release candidates that are usually very stable.

              I wish GIMP was more similar.

                Cycles dev has left Blender. I don't think they are in a position for big rewrites.

                Do you have any numbers for "AMD Omega driver flies with OpenCL" with LuxRenderer?

                    Hi Thanks for that man ,

                    It is a good update on my core2duo 7200(which is 65watts only)

                    is fast and already include a Graphic card on the same die ho, and is consumes less power

                    For what I can see, each core has 4 threads(siblings), but only two cpucores...maybe it use 2 cpu trheads + 2 gpu threads = 4 siblings??

                    This processor seems to handle 16 threads(4 siblings x 4 cores) ...wooww
                    this is confuse, and dificult to understand :S

                    Ths you know how it perform in games?

                    Michael should make some estes on mid-high end apu's

                    One more time Thanks
