A little something I call; mintRedirection or Redirection.

Post by longlivethebestos » Sun Dec 07, 2008 8:02 am

Preferably for Linux Mint exclusively I would like to see something no other Linux or operating system can do today; It's called mint Redirection and what it does is it takes to power of the Gpu and re-directs it for other uses besides 2d and 3d rendering. That way I think people can have fast comps because of their GPU's, In fact its so powerfull I remember seeing a whole movie being converted in a few minutes thanks to this! nVidia uses CUDA and Ati uses Ati stream.

Thanks for your time please reply back with what you think and if it would be possible because I know it is, just needs a little time and lots of donations :D

Dunno if LM "can" actually do this. This is more of driver thing, and I think both ATI and NVIDIA are working on things like what you describe, though if they are bringing them to Linux is another question. F@H is an example of this.

So you know the way that the Linux community has mad its own graphics card drivers because everyone's so far up Microsoft's arse, why can't they do it again? I'm sure they can but its just a suggestion.

Thanks for you're feedback.
