    Default A Historical Look At Intel Ironlake Graphics Performance

    Phoronix: A Historical Look At Intel Ironlake Graphics Performance

    For the past five months when mentioning Intel graphics at Phoronix, it's been pretty much about their latest-generation Sandy Bridge hardware and most recently about their next-generation Ivy Bridge. The talk has either been about new hardware enablement, performance improvements, or bad regressions. In this article, we are going a generation back to look at how the Clarkdale/Arrandale-Ironlake graphics performance has evolved under Linux over the course of Ubuntu releases.

    Default usual Fedora version correction

    Fedora mesa is git from a few weeks ago, F15 updates testing has git from 5 minutes ago. F15 users should see all of these benefits now.

    Michael please correct the article or are you just unhappy when your favourite distros can't keep up?

    Usually ironlake cpus can compile the whole stack within 20-25 min - the most time is needed to dl from the extra slow freedesktop server.

    I hadn't dug too deeply to see what 7.11-devel snapshot was shipping by default in F15, but it didn't have the Git SHA1 hash as part of the OpenGL version string so it's a few weeks old at least and figured it might have been too outdated. Usually I just look at the stock package set shipping with the distribution. However, the article has been updated to reflect the information. Thanks for the comments.
