Intel Drops A Load Of G45 Programming Documentation
Phoronix: Intel Drops A Load Of G45 Programming Documentation
While Intel has long backed an open-source graphics driver for their integrated graphics driver, it was not up until last year when Intel released the i965/G35 documentation that there was public, NDA-free documentation concerning their newer IGPs. Later that year they then released the GMA X4500HD series and since then we have been waiting for them to push out public documentation concerning their G45 chipset. Well, Intel has finally come to the table with this documentation and it is very extensive. This documentation drop today is split into several volumes and makes up well over 1,000 pages of Intel hardware documentation and register descriptions that are available under the Creative Common Attribution, No Derivative Works license.
Way to be an Open Source Player, Intel!
Congrats to Intel and their FOSS team for making this information publically aailable so that the community can improve Intel's graphics drivers.
