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.

Intel Broadwell HD Graphics Tests With Mesa 10.7 Git

While Mesa 10.7 just recently entered development, the Git code is often benchmarked on Phoronix, and with not having delivered any Intel Broadwell Linux graphics tests in some time, here's the latest numbers as of this weekend.

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.

Linux 4.1 Kernel Benchmarks With An Intel Core i7 IVB System

Yesterday I ran some fresh tests of Intel Ivy Bridge on the latest Mesa Git code to see if the performance has changed much recently for the slightly-older generation of Intel HD Graphics. Today I've done some similar tests in kernel-space with the Linux 4.1 kernel.

Mesa Git OpenGL Tests With Intel Ivy Bridge Graphics

Most often these days when running Intel Linux graphics tests at Phoronix it's with Haswell, Broadwell, or Bay Trail hardware. However, in being curious if there's any performance improvements for slightly older hardware with Mesa 10.6 or Mesa 10.7-devel Git, I've run some fresh Ivy Bridge numbers.

Intel Is Making Some Progress With Compute Shaders

One of the big extensions of OpenGL 4.3 and also a requirement of OpenGL ES 3.1 is support for compute shaders. While the work isn't complete yet, Intel's open-source developers are making progress on GL_ARB_compute_shader support.
