Embedding A Code Compiler With GPU Drivers
Phoronix: Embedding A Code Compiler With GPU Drivers
During the X.Org meetings at FOSDEM, Stephane Marchesin had discussed what he and other open-source developers are doing by using a code compiler (LLVM) and interweaving it with the Gallium3D driver architecture. By strapping the Low-Level Virtual Machine to Gallium3D, developers are hoping they can use the power of this relatively new compiler infrastructure to provide advanced GPU shader optimizations. This is not exactly an easy task, but it is believed it can be accomplished with beneficial results and they are making progress.
I appreciate the video uploads, but seriously, the audio is absolutely horrible. Isn't there a way to hook up one of those remote microphones?
Yes, it's too late for it this year, just a suggestion for the next such conference where you record video - because apart from that audio problem, these video uploads are a great service to all the interested parties.
As has been mentioned a few times now on the forums, the microphone used was fine but it appears that the microphone adapter used for connecting to the netbook was faulty in some cases. That will be replaced for next time or will be tapping directly into their audio feed.
