Nova Bridge

Post by lazi »

As far as I know MiniGL on Amiga OS is working top of warp3d drivers.
They say that NovaBrigde is a wrapper of old warp3d to the new warp3d Nova.
Now the question is how that affects GLGalore performance?

Can anybody with X5000 and NovaBridge test it? Is it makes any difference?
NovaBridge is on my wishlist, but the priority is depends on the useability in the view of Hollywood. Certainly :-)

Haven't had time to test this yet. I'd also be interested in some tests on how GL Galore performs.

I have a SAM 460LE with Radeon HD R9 250 with RadeonHD driver v5 and Warp3DNova with a fresh install of AmigaOS4.1 FE and the problem with Hollywood 10 or GLgalore plugin is that GLgalore example codes works too slow ( around 1-2 fps for cellshading example code ).
I'd test with Hollywood 10 and 9 with same results. Same Cellshading example works really fast in MorphOS.

Other executables ( not hollywood based ) for MiniGL works at lightspeed. Really I don't know if this problem is only with GLgalore with RadeonHD v5 Driver+3dNova or if it's a general problem with GLgalore for any AmigaOS4.1 FE.

My MorphOS MacMini with Radeon 9200 runs CellShading example smooth ( I don't know how many fps but sure 15-20 fps at least ).

Yesterday I'd test without NovaBridge, only with RadeonHD driver and Warp3D-SI with same results.

This executable from minigl installation/update ( demos/celshading ) of same CelShading anim runs fast.

GL Galore probably needs a few tweaks to make use of Nova Bridge. GL Galore was designed for classic MiniGL, i.e. the one used on AmigaOne and Pegasos 2 setups. The GL Galore examples run very smoothly on my Pegasos 2 using OS 4.1 FE. Adapting it for Nova Bridge is on my agenda though...
