I’m pleased to announce the release of the initial sample 3D driver for R6xx/R7xx hardware. It’s available on the r6xx-r7xx-support branch of mesa:
To test this branch, you will need updated drm kernel modules and radeon drm headers from the r6xx-r7xx-3d branch of my drm tree:
This will be moving to the main drm tree soon.
We will be syncing this code up with the work going on in the radeon-rewrite branch of mesa over the next few weeks:
Many thanks to Richard Li and Cooper Yuan as they have done most of the work on this so far.
The driver is currently incomplete and only runs a few mesa demos at the moment, but development will be picking up and continuing in the main mesa tree.
