Intel GMA3150 Graphics With Ubuntu 12.10
Phoronix: Intel GMA3150 Graphics With Ubuntu 12.10
Most often when benchmarking Intel hardware on Phoronix it's from the latest-generation "Ivy Bridge" or previous-generation "Sandy Bridge" families because, well, that's what is most interesting and exciting right now. Intel has made lots of open-source Linux driver advancements for this latest Intel hardware -- while simultaneously working on next-generation Haswell and Valley View support -- but how is their support standing for much older hardware? In this article are benchmarks from an Intel Atom with GMA3150 integrated graphics.
That 1400 x 1050 or 1366x768 is the max, is probably related to your computer and not the the GMA3150 GPU. I have got 1920x1080 working without problems on an Atom D425 using a VGA connection to a Samsung TV.
Wow... it's pretty ridiculous that I'm introduced to portuguese companies through a north-american web site
I think that VGA output should have a max resolution of 2048x1536, but the digital output less than this. Anyway I'm sure that manufacturers can limit these at will.
None of the logs in the test runs indicate the presence of a VGA connection (or any connection other than LVDS) so I cannot say for what reason it would not have supported the native resolution of the attached monitor.

leave it to the porkies to overcharge for 2 year old hardware.
The benchmarks are great and appreciated, but what does it actually mean for a netbook equipped with the GMA3150 in terms of real-life user cases?
Since that chipset's useless in 3D anyway, what combination of Intel drivers, X and kernel would be ideal for the average day of 2D consisting of browsing (Firefox), viewing youtube (flash?) and some converted DVD -> h264 wrt. heat, CPU usage and quality..?
And PS. What does SNA actually improve in real terms (both on newer and older graphics parts)? I've enabled it on my SNB system (thanks Oibaf for the builds, Liquorix too!) but I can't really see any difference compared to that system's native Mint 13 (12.04-ish) setup. Is it or will it ever be useful with the likes of GMA3150 or G33?
Advance thanks for any clarification.
