    If Intel delivers good opensource drivers and support for it without joining to Gallium club, let it be.

    There is intel 'ilo' gallium driver (however I known it's not supported by Intel, it's slower, bugged, experimental, with less features and less hardware support, but just to let you know).

    The "Gen 8" Broadwell support doing GL 3.3 on Linux puts it on par with current-generation Haswell graphics.

    Lol what a nonsense. Haswell supports OpenGL 4.2 with newest windows drivers.

    I'm sure Broadwell does 4.2 on windows too, but this was obviously talking about linux.
