    Default Future: 2011-5-31 AMD open up some important closed source stuff

    Puzzle with us what will it be...

    The Firmware?

    or ATI Avivo the Shader based video codex decoder?

    and whats up with some openCL/steam stuff?

    or maybe a specification for the UVD unit ?

    or maybe the commercial version of the openCL based bulled physik engine?

    whatever the future will show us the truenes.

    I bet on the Firmware.

    then we have a full opensource driver.

    My bet's on the cpu opencl. There shouldn't be much to hide in there, unless of course they did an Intel and put in slower paths for others' cpus.

    i also put it on the firmware. it's probably blown out of proportion and this is adequately disappointing.

    No idea here - we always have stuff being reviewed to see if we can release but no plans on our side. Someone in the company usually pushes to one open source project or another every couple of weeks though...

    I'll be watching just like everyone else
