RadeonSI Gallium3D Now Supports GL4 Indirect Drawing Too

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

Just a very short time after Nouveau added support for OpenGL 4 indirect drawing, AMD developers have now added support for the related OpenGL 4.x extensions to the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver.

The extensions newly supported by the RadeonSI Gallium3D code in mainline Git is OpenGL 4.0's GL_ARB_draw_indirect and OpenGL 4.3's GL_ARB_multi_draw_indirect. This work is just about the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver and not R600g. These extensions are also enabled for the Gallium3D Softpipe and LLVMpipe fallback drivers too, besides the Nouveau NVC0 and Intel i965 support too.
