Mesa 19 is out! Glorious Freesyncing has begun!


#1

Just a heads up that Mesa 19 is out:

https://www.mesa3d.org

https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Mesa-19.0-Officially-Released

It includes freesync and adaptive sync for Radeon and some vulkan for intel now!
Might be worth it to upgrade for the performance boost, but only for experienced users.


#2

Good timing!

I just bought a freesync display!

Can’t wait for Fedora to update this.


#3

Theres a copr repo you can use to test if you want. (usual warnings of stability)


#4

Ayyy, I’ll check it out when the display comes in.

Stability matters not for me. (not on this system anyways)


#5

I am still hoping that Ryzen Mobile actually works properly with these updates.


#6

I’m hoping Mesa 19 finally solves Unity issues with DXVK. It’s not fun when a compatibility rating gets dragged down on ProtonDB because of Mesa.


#7

What the turn around time for a distro to push this stuff out? I’m a basic pleb that runs Ubuntu with Cinnamon so I’m just wondering.


#8

I think it will come with Ubuntu 19.04, 18.04 will probably have an updated version in the next hardware enablement stack.


#9

I’m running 18.10 right now so hopefully 19.04 does the job just as well. I’m going to have to run the 5.0 kernel right? Because I’m using 4.19 right now.


#10

It will be one of the 5.0 kernels, but the current one will need patched with these updates so not sure which release it’s going to be on yet.


#11

Are they going to release 5.1 soon? I don’t track the kernel so I’m not too sure.


#13

Mesa is not patched in the 5.02 kernel, so unsure.
