I also just did some tests of the new Asynchronous DMA engine in drm-next against a late 3.7rc kernel in Unigine Heaven
All tests are on:
AMD Phenom II x6 1055t
Radeon 6850 1GB
Linux Mint 14
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD BARTS
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.1-devel (git-3392f2f)
S3TC is enabled
FP textures enabled
LLVM back-end enabled
It goes from 2.7 to 23 fps. Not quite a 10x increase. I'm out of time now, but after work I might run the full gaming suite and see what the overall improvements are.
Thank you Marek.
Your work is very appreciated, you never stop to impress me.
Donated. Feels good man.
Hmm, well, I was looking for someone to donate to in regards to graphics. But in the end I want to donate to KDE first, and it's just not worth the hassle to donate something like €3... Possibly next time around.
Marek alone justifies why free graphics drivers can work.
But they were all applied to master today, so now it's 0 patches.
Marek does it again!
This guy is amazing!
We need to clone him.
Thanks Marek. You rock.
Keep up the great work.
