My only concern is if this is going to really fully work, or if your going to work your way into a dead end. I mean, the console has been out for almost 1 year now and very little progress made. Even though if what you got is going to work fully, this is a huge step up. But once the graphics are going, what other aditions need to be fixed?
I think 1 year to find a way to work around the security layer Sony implemented around the GPU & other hardware *and* write a preliminary driver that does blitting, textured triangles, etc. on an undocumented GPU is not long. The FIFO hole was only found a few months ago, and now it's already almost possible to write an accelerated Xv driver that enables smooth full HD movie playback.
If this will ever lead to a complete 3D driver that supports all sorts of shader programs, texture formats, etc, I seriously doubt that. But even the most basic stuff is already a huge step forward.This post has been edited by d-range: Nov 30 2007, 11:23 AM
