This significantly broadened the available range of hardware support achievable when using the Mesa library. Last edited 7 years ago by wswartzendruber previous diff. Slides and sample application is available on http: Currently I don’t see any advantages of Gallium3D, but I keep looking. I’m running unstable Gentoo on this thing, and they’re usually pretty good about keeping X.

There’re some community efforts which are working on some gallium3d based drivers but according to the benchmarks those are much slower compared to closed source hw vendor ones. Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page: In particular, since we pass on graphics pipeline commands and data to the host’s OpenGL implementation it seemed that Gallium3D might actually be a worse fit.

Nonetheless, as most components interacting with the Mesa stack are open source, experimental work is often done through altering several components at once as well as the interfaces between them.

Intel’s driver is going to be that way and it’s going to be how drivers and 3D get done within Linux in that timeframe I mentioned above. I take that back Target is Vulkan 1.

Mesa (computer graphics) – Wikipedia

The available free and open-source device drivers for graphic chipsets galium3d “stewarded” by Mesa because the existing free and open-source implementation of APIs are developed inside of Mesa. I think I would like a bit more than “VMware seems to be using Gallium3D for their Windows drivers” to convince me that Gallium3D will be helpful for Windows drivers we support Aero now, and currently our main 3D development galliuk3d is getting rid of Windows glitches.


But what about GPU-assisted video decoding? This section needs expansion. Here are the build instructions for each of the reference drivers: It would still be a far cleaner solution than the current WINE hack. They posted it on wimdows Wiki. While the design requires all these components to interact carefully, the interfaces between them are relatively fixed.

The time now is I would be interested to hear your thoughts about this, but I don’t think that we are likely to rethink our position just now.

Traditional fixed-function OpenGL components such as lighting and texture combining are implemented with shaders. Although we are grateful of course for your concern for reducing our development effort! The software was well received, and people began contributing gallium3 its development.

Gallium3D: a short explanation where it fits in

I have to admit that I’m extremely confused as to why you would ever want to maintain a driver and multiple APIs for it instead of just The util module has code for debugging, image manipulation, hashing, math and miscellaneous helper routines. Many improvements in many drivers are available.


I do wonder slightly whether you are underestimating the amount of work galium3d developer time involved in what you are requesting? Until Gallium3D has matured there’s not that much to gallijm3d. Combining Gallium3D with DRI2 and the work at getting memory management, mode setting and things into the kernel in a generic way, the work needed from drivers is being dramatically reduced.

Retrieved 11 December Larabel, Gxllium3d 14 December Thanks, I have already do it now. This is specially true for the “classic” drivers, while the Gallium3D drivers share common code that tend to homogenize the supported extensions and versions.

One goal of Mesa is the optimization of code that is to be executed by the respective GPU. Also, 3D rendering performance was usually significantly slower with some notable exceptions.

Gallium3D will now hop in by being the only backend Mesa3D needs to focus on. A UMD needs only apply optimizations, that are specific to the supported hardware.
