Well, that's at very least an interesting data point. So yes, they exist, but they are new and expensive. Can I assume that this means most of our arm64 users do not yet get to them? > I need to investigate this further, but changing from GL to GLES just > at the moment where desktop hardware starts to make inroads could be a > big own goal on arm64. That's *exactly* what I have been reading since I filled the bug I mentioned before in... 2015. So far all I could see are embedded boards. But hey, we can change it now and always go back in the future if arm64 motherboards become ubiquitous. > I recall Linaro doing some work on this back > when it started (to make it easier to switch between GL and > GLES). Possibly that work never actually got done, just talked out. It would really help, indeed. -- Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer http://perezmeyer.com.ar/ http://perezmeyer.blogspot.com/
