Help Make Open Source AMD Graphics Drivers Better
« on: 13. January 2014, 21:12:46 »
Quote from: GamingOnLinux
Got a workload that runs badly on the r600g Radeon Gallium3D driver? You can help fix it! Optimizations are coming to the open-source Radeon Linux driver for video memory usage.

I'm currently working on my thesis (Software Engineering), studying the VRAM behavior of radeon. For r600g, much of the remaining gap to fglrx can be explained by less than optimal VRAM use. There's fragmentation, and there's ping-pong of buffers to and from VRAM.

The above is only an excerpt. Here is the source.

If you can help, then please do so!

My apologies. This only ever happens to me on the Manjaro forum. I have fixed it now.

Good LINK, I think.

Thank you.
