Phoronix: Intel Gets Ready With New X.Org Driver For Sandy Bridge
Intel is gearing up to release their xf86-video-intel 2.14 DDX driver in the coming weeks, which will be their quarterly open-source X.Org driver update for their Intel IGPs. In preparations for this release and the forthcoming release candidates, Intel's Carl Worth has tagged the xf86-video-intel 2.13.901 driver in Git, which is an intermediate development snapshot...
With still abysmal OpenGL speed and multiple bugs which are being fixed very slowly or not fixed at all.

P.S. Intel Windows drivers are awful as well, but at least they offer a decent OpenGL/DirectX speed.
Are they exposing their video acceleration bits through the drivers?
