Phoronix: R600 Gallium3D Expands On Stream-Out By Default
The R600 Gallium3D driver is beginning to enable Stream-Out support by default for a greater selection of the Radeon graphics processors...
How exactly does this benefit us?
I.e., USE CASE.
More mordern OpenGL features as I read it.
Edit: 1 example i found on the web of it being used - http://prideout.net/blog/?tag=transform-feedback

With it you can store what you generate on the GPU. Think deformable terrain for example, without having the cpu do transfers at any point.
