Phoronix: Mesa 9.0 vs. Mesa 9.1-devel On Intel Sandy Bridge
For those Intel "Sandy Bridge" CPU owners with integrated HD 2000/3000 graphics, here are some benchmarks showing the performance of the current Mesa 9.1-devel Git code compared to the stable Mesa 9.0 release. There are a few performance improvements to be found for this open-source Intel Linux graphics driver.
How to Enable OpenGL 3.x?
I'm generally curious: as a Fedora user (18 beta), how could I enable OpenGL 3.x support in Mesa for Intel HD 4000 graphics? For some reason I cannot enable it with the default packages provided, and I'm somewhat unsure of how to build Mesa from source over my existing installation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
