Attempted to run AetherSX2 PS2 emulator on the new Amazon Fire HD tablet (MT8183 4xA73 4xA53 and Mali-G72 MP3), on paper the CPU should be sufficient but the emulator shows a notification on startup that double-source blending is not supported by the hardware! and the GPU doesn't even report vulkan support probably because it's missing that blending type 😅 anyway, even with the graphics glitches the tablet didn't run anything I tested at playable speed so, meh 😒

Turns out the dual-source blending feature is the ability to return 2 source colors from a fragment shader and running them through the fixed-function blending unit, or something like that.. 🤨
