TitaniumGL: A Faster Multi-Platform Graphics Driver Architecture?
Phoronix: TitaniumGL: A Faster Multi-Platform Graphics Driver Architecture?
After first being introduced on Windows years ago, and then FreeBSD and ReactOS support added last year, this week finally marked the release of TitaniumGL for Linux. TitaniumGL is self-described as a "freeware driver architecture" and carries a goal to support OpenGL on graphics cards with broken, bad, or missing OpenGL hardware drivers. Here are some benchmarks of TitaniumGL compared to NVIDIA's binary GPU driver and the Mesa/Gallium3D LLVMpipe software rasterizer.
is it some april's fool joke?
or at least hire this guy... or dunno... what is it behind this? have you tested the radeon driver on it?
as i remember running gothic 2 on pre r300 graphic cards on single core cpu (~1,7GHz) with 1GB SD Ram, smoothly, with high details and 1600x1200 resolution. nowadays supertuxkart is barely fluently on x1650 with dualcore cpu and 2GB ddr1 ram on 1440x900 resolution. maybe i just got carried away, but thats more like the numbers im suspecting from graphics.
besides, what about supertuxkart? its an awesome game and runs on irrlicht engine. could be interesting for testing, couldnt it?
only openGL1 and only 32bit and only cloused source?
really.. how cares?
the future is openGL2 or higher
and 64bit or higher
and the future is opensource not closed source.
I almost completely agree with you. My only difference with you, is that his architecture seems to be better than the current mesa's one, and if he can be employed to bring that to open source, I'm all for it.

Who's gonna hire him?
