Re: Endless OS Helps Tear Down Linux Wall
02/23/18 3:04 AM PT | LinuxInsider Talkback Forum | 324 Words

In a month or two we're going to get the new AMD open source drivers, so compatibility with AMD GPUs should increase as well.
- I think we'll have to agree to disagree about how essential virtual workspaces are, but the...

Re: Linux Gaming: If You Build It, Will They Come?

Look I like Steam, I really do, but the valve game engines are so ancient its a bad joke! The modern engines just don't support OpenGL and would cost a mint to switch, what the PS3/PS4 uses is a stripped to the bone GL-ES and NOT the full OpenGL, not to mention since the stink over OpenGL V3 that its fallen seriously behind DirectX and has to be jury rigged to support modern features using shims, its just not a real competitor.

As much as I like the IDEA of a game console that guys like me can build, tweak, and sell this is simply a product that the market doesn't exist for. those that play PC games have a Windows gaming PC, those that want plug and play buy consoles, with SteamOS you get to pay PC prices for a system that supports less than 10% of the Steam catalog, probably not even 5% of the top 1000 popular software programs run on Linux, so all you are doing is hamstringing your system.

Now that Valve has put some muscle behind graphics for Linux, both nVidia and AMD are starting to put some real resources into developing their Linux drivers, and recent versions of their drivers have shown marked improvements in performance.

... real life intruded as my mom is in the hospital.

And if your "way" is so 'right" riddle me this...why does NOBODY ELSE ON THE PLANET use the horrible driver model Linus has thrown upon you? I mean NOBODY, not Solaris, BSD, nobody but Linux and guess what? I can take a 7 year old driver and slap it in Win 7 and it "just works" while you can't take a 7 month old driver and make it work without major fiddling, and from what I've been told the same is true of BSD and Solaris but sadly they are both server oriented...well like Linux.

And do not give us the "boo hoo, the companies won't support us line" because as we have seen time and time again the FOSS graphics drivers are terrible and waaay behind the times, even when a company like AMD ...

Nvidia has spent millions of dollars on ARM R&D and the only thing they have been able to do is bolt more cores but we have seen it is ultimately a losing game as it becomes harder and harder to scale a program across more and more cores, Tegra is now up to 5 cores and frankly a Cedar Mill P4 will stomp it in performance, that chip is what? Nearly 8 years old now?

So i think the next 10 years are gonna be a seriously dark time for PC builders and those that want to actually use their hardware in ways not approved by mommy corporation. AMD ...

But you're right; Intel is certainly going to try to lock users into an upgrade treadmill, and there's not much we can do beyond choosing a different vendor like... well, no one really, if AMD pulls out of the x86 space. There's VIA,...

... problem is its has gotten to the point that other than a few rare exceptions (AMD Athlon/Sempron/Duron, Via Cx series, some older laptops) that often the unit will frankly suck down more power than it will do useful work so is pointless to keep.

I was a big fan of saving old hardware from the dump but even i have to admit that now most of the stuff is simply pointless, when you can buy an ARM stick for less than $40 and surf the web on it keeping that power hog space heater box just really doesn't make any sense. heck even if you HAVE to have X86 support you can just keep the box and replace the power hog with an Intel Atom or AMD ...

The Pentium 4 thanks to netburst was a HORRIBLE chip, its long pipe made and crazy TDP made it nothing but a space heater and its lack of power saving features meant it sucked down juice like a drunk sucks down free drinks.

Instead a MUCH better idea would be to build new low power units, such as the E350 AMD ...

Its sad but Kronos has really hindered FOSS gaming by holding back OpenGL to favor the CAD devs and forcing the hardware OEMs to use extensions, which means it may work one way on AMD, another on Nvidia, and a third way...
