    Talking :D

    In moments like that one I am happy to be owner of Intel hardware :]
    Shame that AMD is doing something reverse, but that is their decision. And probably many developers from AMD will work at Intel now. Just like it happened with AMD and nVidia last time.
    AMD was cutting costs, but I think, that at some point their cut branch they was standing on.

    It doesn't matter how much faster the Windows driver crashes even if it claims GL4.

    On older chips or current ones? OpenGL features are not a priority on these chips.
    Priorites are proper modesetting, HDMI audio, VA-API acceleration, power management, and those sorts of things. You know, basic functionality that AMD lacks in their open-source driver...

    Thank you Intel and God bless your efforts and your next CEO to carry the torch of innovation and generosity.

    Lightbulb It's also about resources

    It's worth noting that Intel has about ten times the number of employees AMD has, which makes AMD the first in terms of percentage of employees working on open source drivers.
