    OpenGL 4 does indeed support binary shader loading and retrieval, but there is no standard binary format. So GLSL sources still need to be available for the initial compilation.

    She's now reportedly up and running on the AMD blob.

    It all makes sense now. If you're referring to the Steam Box...
    I can virtually see the case design based on parts of GLaDOS.

    Just kidding.

    Btw, I wonder what this job position is actually for:

    Software Engineer—Firmware
    Do you like programming directly to the bare metal?
    If so, as a Valve firmware engineer you will write the code that brings all kinds of new devices to life.
    Your expertise in writing firmware that communicates via various protocols will let players interact with
    their games in ways they’ve never experienced before. By efficiently communicating between PC and hardware,
    the microcontroller code you write will be the backbone of various input and output devices.

    makes me wish I was born a few years earlier, so I would be done with my ECE degree and apply.

    Valve does not hire people fresh out of school, ever, aside from some very exceptional exceptions (e.g., the DigiPen grads that inspired Portal and Portal 2). You'd need to be born about 10 years earlier, have finished your degree, and then gone and made a name for yourself proving your talents, and then maybe Valve would consider even talking to you about an interview. Or have gone to DigiPen and made a truly innovative IGF-winning game while living a few blocks away from Valve's headquarters.

    I doubt the Steam client would be too demanding on the GPU
