Intel DRM-Next Performance Tests With Skylake (Linux 4.8)

After finishing up this weekend's AMDGPU R9 Fury + RX 480 benchmarks of DRM-Next for material that will land with Linux 4.8 along with RX 480 overclocking support, tables turned to run some fresh benchmarks of the Intel DRM-Next code that will premiere in Linux 4.8.

Trying Various OpenGL 4.x Games On Linux With An Intel Skylake Core i5

With the imminent Mesa 12.0 release there is now OpenGL 4.3 compliance for Intel Broadwell graphics hardware and newer, rather than OpenGL 3.3 as was the upper limit in the Intel Mesa driver to this point. Now having OpenGL 4.x support with this open-source Intel driver, I decided to see how various OpenGL 4.x games are running with the Intel driver when using a Skylake CPU sporting HD Graphics 530.

Intel Might Actually Be Done With OpenGL 4.4 In Mesa

It was just last week that Intel crossed OpenGL 4.2 in Mesa and earlier today the needed Intel OpenGL 4.3 patches landed while tonight there are patches pending for the OpenGL 4.4 changes for Intel's open-source Linux graphics driver.

Intel's P-State Driver Does Seem To Be In Bad Shape On Linux 4.6~4.7

A few days ago when delivering benchmarks of the new CPUFreq "Schedutil" governor in Linux 4.7 the P-State comparison results on this Git kernel looked particularly terrible. I've since done some P-State tests on the same system using the Linux 4.5 and 4.6 kernels that further point towards a regression having taken place.

Intel Is Getting Very Close With Its Last Extension For OpenGL 4.3

For Broadwell hardware and newer, this week marked the milestone of the Intel Mesa driver exposing OpenGL 4.2 support. However, they are only one extension away from OpenGL 4.3 compliance for the newer Intel graphics hardware and a new version of that patch-set was just posted.

Intel SNA vs. Modesetting GLAMOR - DDX Benchmarks

Following all of the Intel 3D graphics tests this week for DRM-Next code for Linux 4.7, Mesa 11.3-devel, and more, there's been a few readers requesting a fresh xf86-video-intel vs. xf86-video-modesetting comparison.

Mesa 11.3 Isn't A Game Changer For Intel's Haswell

OpenGL tests I published yesterday show that Intel Broadwell graphics are much faster with Mesa 11.3 -- and that's on top of the newly-minted OpenGL 4.2 support -- but the same can't be said for Haswell.
