Using Gallium3D On AMD FirePro Workstation GPUs @ Phoronix

Posted on Friday, April 01 2011 @ 07:35:52 CEST by

It is the workstation market that drives the proprietary Linux driver development after all for AMD and NVIDIA, and that is really the focus of development, not Linux gamers or enthusiasts.
