Phoronix: The State Of Open-Source ARM GPU Drivers
Rob Clark of the fast-growing Freedreno project provided a status update earlier this week at the X.Org Developers' Conference concerning his open-source ARM Qualcomm graphics driver, the Lima driver for ARM' Mali, GRATE for NVIDIA's Tegra, and Etnaviv for Vivante graphics hardware...
Anyway, this should probably shuts most “Linux needs proprietary drivers”-type people up because it gives hard facts that the Mesa drivers are among the best out there and that NVidia's driver is the only proprietary driver that's better than Mesa (this also means that Nouveau drivers are rather OK, just not “Excellent”).
Maybe it'll also convince Android ROM makers to utilize an Android–Mesa combination like Intel already do for their Android variant.
What I am curious about is why there is so little interest from devs/coders/etc in the PowerVR GPUs compared to all the other GPUs out there (AMD/ATI, NVIDIA, Arm MALI, Qualcomm Adreno etc)
I would fiddle with the PowerVR GPU (and drivers) in my Nokia N900 if I had the skills (but I dont know the first thing about GPUs or kernel development)
.. and the rest just hate PowerVR for all they've done
