While some of the concepts are similar, these are completely separate mechanisms which operate independently, under control of the operating system.

This remapping function should not be confused in any way with the system address translation table mechanism.

Last edited Sat 13 Apr This patch is needed for this chipset because it works only in 8X when you plug a 8X card. Therefore, you allocate and bind the pages you’ll use, and mmap just returns the right pages when needed. However, since a primary motivation of the AGP is to reduce growth pressure on local memory, the execute model is the design focus. Accelerated Graphics Port AGP AGP is a dedicated high-speed bus that allows the graphics controller to fetch large amounts of data directly from system memory.

But those Quake 3 performance numbers gqrt any chance the board had of attaining Editor’s Choice status. If it is Linux Related and doesn’t seem to fit in any other forum then this is the place. In general I undestand what is it, but I want more deep knowledge about one. In the case of the P3V4X, it may have enhanced compatibility or stability under certain conditions, but it certainly caused problems with the 4.


Generally programs do the following: This book contains many real life examples derived from the author’s experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. The whole point of the DRI is to allow processes that can connect to the X server to do some form of direct to hardware rendering.

An additional mechanism is required to ago clients to know which pieces of their AGP buffer is pending execution by the hardware, and which pieces of the buffer are available to be reused. While some of the concepts are similar, these are completely separate mechanisms which operate independently, under control of the operating system. Finally on May 12,VIA released version 4.

Hi, I’m a little confused ahp the what the relationship is between AGP memory and the 4K sized pages that are dynamically allocated when you run out of local video memory. Does that mean there are two copies of say a texture?

Several events might cause the kernel to examine active rings for commands to be dispatched: Log in Don’t have an account? Also to answer a previous question about not using XFree86 calls for memory mapping, you have to understand that under most OS’s probably Solaris as wellXFree86’s functions will only work for root privileged processes. This means that there is less complexity on the client side.


We had originally tested with the then-current 4. Graphics and GPU Programming.

You can also use this test program as a bit more documentation as to how agpgart is used. The time now is So no, there is only one copy of the graphics resources in system memory.

Please post a new topic.

BB code is On. It has to be able to protect certain regions of AGP memory from the client side 3D drivers, yet it has to export some regions of it as well.

This is very important for the I, since you want to set tiled memory on certain regions of the aperture. If you need to reset your password, click here. This topic is days old which is more than the day threshold we allow for new bart. Does anybody give me some useful link s about subj?
