Gallium3D bounty delivers first release!
« on: January 09, 2010, 05:17:27 PM »
I'm happy to annouce the first ALPHA release of Gallium3D bounty. The goal of the bounty is to implement hardware 3D acceleration in AROS by porting Mesa3D library and Gallium drivers for nVidia cards.

This release brings initial support for GeForce 5XXX, GeForce 6XXX and GeForce 7XXX card series.

It can be downloaded from here

For more information on installation and usage please see the README file.

For more information on the bounty and donations please visit: Gallium3D bounty page

Great work Deadwood. Guess this means I should finally upload a few GL things I compiled for AROS to the archives  :-)
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Two short movies from one of the users showing foobilard and sdl-ball using hardware 3D acceleration:

This depends when the nouveau developers (authors of nVidia gallium3D driver) implement it. Right now I know that the driver has also support for GeForce 8XXX and GeForce 9XXX series (currently not working in AROS port)

Nice... This seems to be a pretty big deal, no?
Someone has to state the obvious and that someone is me!

@redrumloa

absolutely, gallium3d is the future of hardware accellerated 3d driver layer.
