hi marek, i did a git pull today since some patches naming r700 landed but it seem MSAA is not activated yet, i think is cuz i miss a patch that has not landed on git yet but just in case
OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD RV770
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.1-devel (git-f8a8f06)
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI R700 [Radeon HD 4850] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
04:00.0 Display controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI R700 [Radeon HD 4850]
Btw. compared to Intel graphics... I can play DDO (wine), open driver on 1 cylinder (low power profile ~299MHz), all settings to high.
AFAIK the kernel bits are missing in rc2 (and rc3, too). Hopefully they will be in rc4. :)

Wouldn't radeongcn have been a better name then radeonsi?

Agree that the transitional product naming (where high end SI parts are GCN and lower parts are VLIW) makes the current naming convention awkward for now.
