    Default what is the catalyst advantage?

    This is the one question that hasn't been detailed in a while: Why is catalyst so much quicker then open-source?

    I'm sure the differences in performance are well understood, and it's not a trivial or yet important gap to close, so let's lay it out there!

    My impression is that when this gallium+llvm conversion is all finished, we'll be able to add few optimizers and close the gap, but we'll be spending the next year or so finishing all the conversion/plumbing.

    Not that I mind, I think that the true priority is in moving to wayland...

    Answer to first quote here:

    Catalyst advantage is manpower.
