Which one is better? Mesa maintains a support matrix with the status of the current OpenGL conformance [11] [12] visualized at mesamatrix. Mesa implements a translation layer between a graphics API such as OpenGL and the graphics hardware drivers in the operating system kernel. Same questions – What is the difference between them? For example, lets take the Radeon card.

Initial support for the Evergreen GPUs was added to the rg driver. Mesa is hosted by freedesktop.

Mesa (computer graphics)

Free and open-source graphics device driver. A kind of memory barrier which separates one buffer from the rest dorg the memory is called a fence.

For details and our forum data attribution, retention and privacy policy, see here. Also, 3D rendering performance was usually significantly slower with some notable exceptions. Please read the section “Debugging and reporting problems” below. Shader-db is intended to help validate an optimization. Old version, no longer supported: It allows for a single copy of the shared Mesa code to be used among multiple drivers instead of it existing in each driver separately and offering better performance than a separate shared library due to the removal of the internal library interface.


Thermal sensors are implemented via external i2c chips or via the internal thermal sensor rv6xx-evergreen only; supported in 2.

GEM handles and FDsbut userspace is unaware of this.

xodg Views Read Edit View history. For forum support see: If not you may want to report a new bug: Despite this, the internal architecture of Mesa was designed to be open for attaching to graphics processor -accelerated 3D rendering. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del. Depending on the availability of hardware documentation and man-power, the free and open-source driver lag behind more or less in supporting 3D acceleration of new hardware.

Major commits were made to the code to support Direct3D 9. Free and open-source software projects hosted by freedesktop. Due to this, dynpm only works when a single head is active.

PPA statistics Activity updates added during the past month. You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted PPA by adding ppa: On boards that use the internal thermal sensor, the drm will set up the hwmon interface automatically.

You can help by adding to it. Power management is supported on all asics r1xx-evergreen that include the appropriate power state tables in the vbios; not all boards do especially older desktop cards. Note that due to the modularized nature galllium OpenGL, Mesa can actually support extensions from newer versions of OpenGL without claiming full support for such versions.


Open Source video drivers + Mesa + Gallium. I am confused.

Archived from the original on 16 April Older version, yet still supported: Free and open-source software portal. The reclocking is attemped during vertical blanking gaklium, but due to the timing of the reclocking functions, doesn’t not always complete in the blanking period, which can lead to flicker in the display.

xog While the design requires all these components to interact carefully, the interfaces between them are relatively fixed. September 10th, 3. Mesa 11 was announced with some drivers being OpenGL 4. Mesa started off by rendering all 3D computer graphics on the CPU. Oibaf 5 hours ago.
