I just wanted to know if you guys can confirm this.
It seems that The Xda Mantle (O2 branded version of the HTC P6500 handset using a qualcomm 7200) has the proper hardware accelerated drivers for the 72xx series of cpus right in its official wm6 pro rom.
SOmebody could probably extract it and adapt it for use for the htc phones using the qualcomm 72xx series.
As proof here are the benchmarks from a review on a spanish website.
Please take special note of the ddb bitblt test
(important for video playback and maybe for fast 2d transitions)
Compare those results with the touch cruise which is also using a qualcomm 7200 cpu and wm6.
Also notice how the htc touch using an old TIOMAP at 200mhz is just performing at the same level as the 400 mhz 7200 in the HTC touch cruise
(this really made me sad)
The difference is more than 10X!
This is what good drivers can do!
Somebody has to get those drivers out of the xda mantle and roll it into a cab that everybody with qualcomm 72xx cpu based device and not just touch diamond users can test!
Here are the Source links
Darn i cant post them as im a new member!
Can someone who has been around here long enough to post urls pm me and i can send the links and you can reply to this post.
the reviewer is very much aware of the HTC video driver issues and comments how HTC should ship their qualcomm based devices with the Right ATI Hardware Accelerated drivers.
original spanish site
hope you can take time out to disseminate this info to the right people who can do this since i dont even know how to backup a rom.
Thanks and God Bless!
