Hi I'm wondering how to program GPU?
I was searching on google but I found only some examples in API.
Also on websites of i.e. nvidia there is nothing (or I couldn't find)
Is it possible to program it somehow ?

i am afraid it differs with each (family) of graphic cards. That's why we need drivers.

If the drivers where open-source - we could extract translatsion tables from these sources and use in assembly. Easy? But what BIG company would be stupid enough to give you full access to their card? Very Happy
Maybe some day...maybe some day...when 6600GT is "so old and slow" you can order some specs from nVidia Wink

I always wanted to know how to program drivers.. aren't there any open-source documented video drivers? code and specs??? maybe an old card? i only wanna see a driver example Smile

Tons of them, but written in C. Sad For example: http://downloads.viaarena.com/Source/Savage-1.1.18bld2-src.tgz <- Linux driver for ProSavageDDR.

it's a relief for me I know C, then Smile
i thought you have to use asm in and out instructions to make it work?
anyway, more simple drivers, just as a start?
thanks alot

ps: don't bother very much, i'll search for Linux drivers Very Happy if you can spare time, though.. Smile
