    There's still discussions on the best way to handle issues with one gpu to not crash the other one.

    Hello,
    Is there any progress on this?
    I have seen virtually nothing on the mailing list.

    What's the difference?

    Depends how DRI_PRIME is implemented for DRI3.
    For the moment it hasn't been implemented.

    But now I think of it, the patches might get rid of tearings with DRI2 with an X compositor doing full screen refreshes synced with vsync.

    That sucks. Oh well, I guess we'll have to wait for Wayland. Hopefully Wayland will be tear free wether with PRIME or not.

    Phoronix: DMA-BUF Cross-Device Synchronization Still Baking

    One of the features that multi-GPU (Optimus/PRIME) owners and other DMA_BUF-using Linux users have been waiting on is cross-device synchronization support. Patches are still flowing for this missing feature and with some luck maybe we will finally see it ready for the Linux 3.15 kernel...
