    Default Open-Source 3D Success For Radeon RV770

    Phoronix: Open-Source 3D Success For Radeon RV770

    We have just found out from AMD's John Bridgman that Alex Deucher, one of their open-source engineers, has today successfully rendered its first hardware-accelerated triangle on the Radeon HD 4800 series (RV770). In other words, the first open-source 3D milestone for this latest graphics card family from ATI! This is similar to back in March when there was the R500 glxgears milestone and coming two months after that was full 3D support with some Linux games running...

    Good news! Hopefully this means that the devs will soon have time to start optimizing and adding features to the open-source driver, too!

    For completeness, I should mention that we did not write the original r300demo program (I think it came out of the R300 DRI project) but Matthias (and Alex ?) modified it pretty heavily to make the current r600demo program.

    This is really respectable. So soon we will have working XV under desktop composition? I've been waiting for this since the day I abandoned XGL

    i remeber reading that the cause for the missing triangle issue was nowhere to be found initially.

    was it really such an obscure bug?
