Marek Cleans-Up & Refactors R600g Driver
Phoronix: Marek Cleans-Up & Refactors R600g Driver
Marek Olšák has continued with his passionate development contributions to the R600 Gallium3D driver, being one of the few independent contributors continuing to make heavy contributions to this open-source AMD Linux graphics driver...
Go go Radeon superhero Marek!
Hint for AMD HR department: hire Marek Olšák as soon as possible.
Yeah, AMD should see potential and hire him as soon as possible before Intel or Nvidia hires him.

Marek was approached by AMD first, but he refused. All current AMD open source developers are working on radeonsi, so I am happy Marek is not one of them and works on r600g.

Not that AMD guys are doing a bad job, but we also need great people outside who may not be restrained by AMD internal IP review processes.
Why not Valve? (I know it was also proposed to him)
hi, marek i have an stupid idea[that maybe can be good] since i don't have time to deal with learning gallium enough to implement opengl missing bits i was thinking that i should understand gallium enough to help optimizing the command stream but i was curious if exist a tool that let me, lets say run piglit and capture the CS from fglrx so i can compare it against r600g, maybe i can shoot some low hanging fruits in there.
another thing i could spent my time with is comparing performance against a reference base[fglrx] but i wish to know if you know any utility that let me capture every gl call and see how much time needed to execute[not sure if can be possible with something like apitrace] dunno for example GL_ARB_Extension 200ms, ofc i don't expect to discover boiling water this way but it can provide a good start point to tackle some low hanging bottlenecks at least
i do code optimization all day at work and i have lots of patience for it[Qt/C++ tho] but unlike cpu code im not sure if the gpu tools exist, so if the tooling i need exists[love if you can give the names so i can get them] and you can give me some starting points ill try my best in bot read the code
