No Can Do with i965c though, and i965g isn't really being worked on. i915 users should consider themselves lucky to get this nice boost despite the hardware being really, really ancient (even my 965GM is old, and it isn't getting that degree of work).
in order to use the state trackers the underlying hardware must support the function right???? ie if i915 hw doesn't support opengl 5 or OpenCL 3 the state tracker supporting those won't be able to do much right??
