Not 2D only. For example OpenArena with Bloom goes up from 1FPS to 30FPS
Hmm, that is not the case at all for me. While I can run OpenArena in 1920x1200 in 64-bit Archlinux just fine on my Thinkpad W500 using a 512MB Mobility FireGL V5700 ATI chip (which I think is more or less equivalent to the Mobility RADEON HD 3650 chip) and yesterdays gits of the 2.6.33 + zen kernel, xf86-video-ati and mesa-full (from AUR), I still get about 1 fps when I activate the bloom effects. This is running without KMS and gallium.
How can I confirm that the latest blit commits are included and compiled in my packages? Do need to specify new configure switches? Do I need a recent git version of some other package?
Oh, and btw, does Penumbra work ok for you guys using this code? Performance and render quality is still pretty bad here.
Gentoo 2.6.33-r4 kms enabled
libdrm mesa and git as of today
I get about 30 fps 720x480 and 25-15 fps 1366x768 in openarena all settings maxed still if I disable bloom I get around 80 and 45 respectivly
glxgears can't be trusted ... I ALWAYS get ~800fps unless I am using UMS then I get 1100-1200 fps
I have the firmware loaded with kms since the kernel wont boot without it... and I don't get the IRQ waits warnings unless I am using UMS of course
Could someone eleborate on why cube2/sauerbraten/bloodfrontier is all screwy only bot are drawn and smeared textures it works fine with swrast bit is @ 2fps? Would it be possible to report a lower GL version since the sauerbraten runs fine on Nvidia GL1.4 or does it depend on a few extra extensions?
I don't see much improvement myself on both of my systems, one with a RS780 9610 chipset, the other with a RS400 5955 one. Basically I get about 750 and 550 fps respectively in glxgears.
I'm using kernel 2.6.33rc4 on both, libdrm, mesa and xf86-video-ati from git but still 1.6.2 X server on both.
Would upgrading to a more recent Xserver would make a difference?
