    There is no #Dolus directus intentio# to do something good in this company there is only a intention to do something Evil inside of a Corporatism anti freedom logic.

    The last ~10 years prove this to me.

    But you can explain us what is the roadmap of the evil AMD plan then I believe you.

    Really? That's pretty fail design of Intel.

    No, just when someone posts something so wrong that I try replying but don't know where to start...

    The TrustZone announcement has nothing to do with HSA other than being talked about in the same year...

    libvdpau_r600.so that file is missing it seems... or whatever funny xorg-messages:


    [ 14.132] (II) RADEON(0): [DRI2] Setup complete
    [ 14.132] (II) RADEON(0): [DRI2] DRI driver: r600
    [ 14.132] (II) RADEON(0): [DRI2] VDPAU driver: r600

    but of curse no no vainfo no vdpauinfo no xvmc stuff works so maybe we talk about that is not working in a year or so... its funny because if you read some of the posts here on phoronix you could think that it was already running a bit buggy or so in january... ^^
    You need to build vdpau support in mesa (--enable-vdpau configure option). At the moment it only supports MPEG1/2.

    do you mean we can buy HSA hardware without a trojan in the product like TrustZone?

    I think this will not be posible.

    In the end we get the Trojan anyway.

    No idea. They are unrelated features.

    Like OHSA safety, or US patent law.
    They will affect the end product, but no one considers them technology design features.

    Facts of life.

    On a more positive note, my LUxmark V2 score went from 1618 to 1800 with the installation of CAT 2.9 beta.

    So...open cl drivers do seem to be improving over time.

    Any word from Mike Houston regarding folding? Dead issue, just won't ever work with their Gromacs , or will improve over time?

    yes because of that it is not included by the default because today nobody uses mpeg2 anymore... yes there are always some special cases... but its retarded, and even if somebody uses that, the copression of that format is so bad that each retarded netbook can ecode that crap with 10-20% cpu load.

    For whom is interested - there is a new document available covering HSA:
