Holiday Gift: OpenGL Radeon Performance Goes Up
Phoronix: Holiday Gift: OpenGL Radeon Performance Goes Up
The R300g and R600g Radeon Gallium3D performance is now up for certain workloads thanks to an important performance fix...
Great news (except for me)
Glad to hear that this has been fixed.
However, it almost certainly won't work on my hardware (Thinkpad X100e/Radeon HD3200 M) without patching:
(If you don't want to follow the links: I get nothing but snow and error messages from Google Earth or glxgears after the commit mentioned in the bug report. I bisected it nearly a month ago, but no-one has tested.)
I haven't tested yet, but this commit did not touch the hack that broke stuff on my hardware...and none of the code that changed looks like it should make a difference.
