Intel Puts New Haswell Code At Parity With Ivy Bridge
Phoronix: Intel Puts New Haswell Code At Parity With Ivy Bridge
Intel OTC has published a set of 21 new patches for "Haswell" hardware enablement of their graphics core with their open-source Linux driver. With this latest round of patches, Intel is already saying that the Haswell Linux graphics support is nearly on par with Ivy Bridge when it comes to the kernel driver...
I'm very happy to her this also, this is very good for Intel in the long run.
However what's up with this: " maybe providing some level of OpenCL support, etc. ". OpenCL is like mothers milk, you can't ignore it if you want to grow the platform. Seriously guys if you put half the effort into OpenCL that AMD does, I wouldn't be looking at AMD at all for my next machine. For some of us that GPU means more that just pretty pictures.
