Mesa 9.1 Delivers Faster Intel OpenGL Graphics
Phoronix: Mesa 9.1 Delivers Faster Intel OpenGL Graphics
With Mesa 9.1 nearing its release next month and having been branched from master as of this week, here are some new benchmarks looking at the Intel HD 4000 "Ivy Bridge" graphics performance when testing Mesa 9.1-devel Git to Mesa 9.0.2, 8.0.5, and 7.11.2. Overall, Mesa 9.1 delivers an OpenGL performance boost for the latest-generation Intel hardware.
Improvements are welcome but there is still a long way to go...
This is good news that Intel are still improving their graphic drivers.
However, they still have a long way to go before they reach the same level of support they gave to Windows platform from day one (OpenGL 4).
