Phoronix: Reworking The R600 Gallium3D Driver Winsys Back-End
Marek Olšák, one of the most prolific open-source graphics driver developers that isn't backed by any corporation, has made another major improvement to the open-source ATI/AMD "R600" Gallium3D driver. This student developer has reworked the Radeon winsys back-end, which can cause major performance improvements...
I tested the branch with Amnesia and Minecraft and I can finally use "Normal" as render distance in Minecraft!
This is pretty cool and a nice performance increase is always welcome.
The thing is... the damn company doesn't even have a CEO.
