Intel Releases 965/G35 IGP Documents
Phoronix: Intel Releases 965/G35 IGP Documents
At the Linux.Conf.Au conference today, Intel has announced NDA-free programming documentation covering the 965 Express and G35 Express integrated graphics processors (IGPs). Intel's display driver has long been open-source, but up until now, they have not been releasing the programming documentation for these products to the public. This move comes months after AMD announced their new open-source strategy and began releasing register documentation on their R500 and R600 GPUs.
So how good is the i965 graphics chip?
Are we talking equivalent R200? R300? R400? Similarly for NVIDIA?
Which version of OpenGL can it support?
