Intel's Mesa DRI Driver Now Supports Shader Subroutines

This week Mesa development is very exciting with OpenGL 4.0~4.1 support being reached and the open-source hardware drivers now just filling in their gaps. Intel's Mesa i965 DRI driver is getting ready to declare OpenGL 4.0 compliance.

Intel's Haswell Iris Graphics vs. Broadwell Iris Pro

This past weekend I posted an open-source Linux graphics driver comparison with an A10-7870K Godavari vs. i7-4790K Haswell vs. i7-5775C Broadwell. Beyond the already-published discrete AMD/NVIDIA GPU results to see how Intel's socketed Broadwell with Iris Pro 6200 Graphics stack up, there were also requests from readers for seeing some Haswell Iris results.

Are Intel Iris Pro 6200 Graphics Fast Enough For Steam Linux Gaming?

While I'm still working on my full Intel Core i7 5775C Linux review of this socketed Broadwell processor with Iris Pro Graphics 6200, and still working through some strange issues, I do have some Steam Linux gaming figures to share tonight for those interested in how Intel's latest-generation Iris Graphics are performing with the open-source Mesa driver stack.

The Other Companies Participating The Most In Mesa/DRI Discussions

Earlier today I wrote about how Intel has a lot of Linux graphics developers (likely 30~50) and is by far the company with the most active developers working on the open-source graphics stack. Here's some other numbers as part of the mailing list parsing for the other active companies, including NVIDIA, AMD, and Samsung.

Working Around The Intel Core i7 5775C Broadwell Stability Issue On Linux

On Friday I mentioned I was running into stability issues on Linux with the Core i7 5775C, Intel's new socketed, high-end Broadwell processor with Iris 6200 graphics. The issue was quite perplexing, but I seem to have finally figured out a workaround for this problem that seems to be plaguing other early i7-5775C Linux users too.

Trying To Run The Intel Core i7 5775C On Linux

A few days ago I received the Intel Core i7 5775C for Linux testing, one of the first Broadwell desktop/socketed chips featuring Iris 6200 graphics. In the days since, I've been trying to test it under Linux.

Intel Is Landing More OpenMP 4.0 Functionality In LLVM Clang

In May the LLVM Clang compiler reached the state of complete OpenMP 3.1 support after the liberally licensed compiler saw its OpenMP support stagger for so long out-of-tree. Intel had been leading the recent efforts for getting OpenMP working in Clang and they've continued in working towards OpenMP 4.0 compliance.

SNA Is Four Years Old - Intel's 3.0 X.Org Driver Still Unreleased

Besides Phoronix celebrating its 11th birthday, last week Intel's SNA 2D acceleration architecture had its birthday and turned four years old. While the xf86-video-intel 3.0 DDX driver release is to make SNA the default for 2D acceleration over UXA, there's still no signs of this release happening.

How Warm Does The Intel Compute Stick Get?

The Intel Compute Stick packs a lot into a tiny package: 2GB of DDR3L memory, 32GB eMMC storage, Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor with Intel HD Graphics, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11n WiFi, USB 2.0, and a microSD card slot... All into a 103 x 37 x 12 mm package, but how warm does it get under full load? Here's some numbers.

Linux Benchmarks Of Intel's Atom Z3735F On The Compute Stick

The Atom Z3735F is what powers Intel's Compute Stick. The Z373F has a Scenario Design Power of just 2.2 Watts while being a quad-core 64-bit processor with a clock speed of 1.33GHz and a burst frequency of 1.83GHz. This low-power Atom SoC also has Intel HD Graphics that work fine under Linux. In this article are some early test data from the Intel Compute Stick with Ubuntu Linux.

Running Linux On The Intel Compute Stick

The Intel Compute Stick has begun shipping, a tiny device that plugs into any HDMI TV or monitor and turns it into a fully-functioning computer. This low-power PC ships with Windows 8.1 or Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, though at the moment the Windows version is first to market with the Ubuntu Compute Stick not widely shipping until June. I have an Intel Compute Stick at Phoronix for testing.
