Bring radeonsi anisotropic filtering setup in line with r600g (2.82 KB, patch)

Description Damian Nowak 2014-05-10 17:57:35 UTC
Setting the anisotropic filtering in a native Half-Life 2 doesn't have any effect. Only bilinear and trilinear filtering work. Just have a look at the screenshot, it's perfectly visible the texture on the ground lacks some nice filtering. http://upload.nowaker.net/nwkr/1399744500_hl2-aniso.jpg

I'm playing on Radeon 7870 with mesa 10.1.3 (Gallium/Glamor) and Arch Linux (rolling release, always up to date with the upstream).

Please consider this issue a feature request (if there is no anisotropic filtering implemented yet) or a bug (if it is implemented but doesn't work for me).

Does this patch help?
Comment 2 Grigori Goronzy 2014-05-13 20:12:51 UTC
Anisotropic filtering is also broken for me in other applications, it looks like it's broken with radeonsi overall. Your patch seems to fix it, Michel. I didn't  really verify correctness, but 16x anisotropic doesn't look like a blurry mess anymore. :)

Hey, I will give it a try. Can you point me to the git repo with the sources I should patch?
Comment 5 Marek Olšák 2014-05-13 22:32:26 UTC
The fix will certainly look like a performance regression when Michael tests radeonsi next time. Be ready for the shocking news on Phoronix. :)
