I found amdgpu commits to the compiler, mesa and libdrm. Xenocara still needs import of xf86-video-amdgpu (easy) and the kernel driver.

Edit: I recall that current had partially adopted more recent linux kernel intel drivers. That code base also had more recent amdgpu drivers but I do not believe that they have been implemented.

It looks like amd support is now at GCN2
http://openbsd-archive.7691.n7.nabbl...-td341554.html

And a dmesg:

Quote:
radeondrm1 at pci1 dev 0 function 0 "ATI Radeon HD 8670M" rev 0x83
drm1 at radeondrm1
radeondrm1: msi
ppb1 at pci0 dev 2 function 3 "AMD AMD64 16h PCIE" rev 0x00: msi
pci2 at ppb1 bus 2
For those who like APU's it looks like FM2+ KAVERI/KABINI/MULLINS series are good. I'm still seen anything definitive on AM4.

Although that update and discussion is from April thanks a lot for posting this. It had somehow escaped my radar. Only the '1.5 million lines of code' snippet rings a bell, I must've picked that up somewhere.

Porting xf86-video-amdgpu should be unnecessary as all GCN Radeons can run on the Modesetting DDX driver with good performance, same as the current Intel graphics.

Until Intel launches new chips that address their security vulnerabilites, AMD chips with full video support would be very attractive to the community. I wonder if an AMD donation to the project could be had without NDAs?

That line has been in that file for a long time. It was just updated with a newer version. xf86-video-amdgpu is still nowhere to be found in the xenocara tree, that is because the developers do not want or care about it.

@Paianni

I wasn't clear, amdgpu had recently been updated

It was added back with this recent commit:
https://github.com/openbsd/xenocara/...e0ffa5edba1589

Why update something you have no intention of dealing with?
