    Weird, I could've sworn Intel's support for i8xx still sucks and is not as good as it was in 2006. Due to bitrot and then removing all acceleration support, making it little more than a dumb framebuffer.

    I mean, back then it could play OA and do XV acceptably. Both require acceleration, no?

      And yet the Intel in my mother's computer can not even WINE Zoo Tycoon for her...
      for me it was a nightmare...

      fact remains that I can't complaint about intel's support of their gfx while I can about ati

        The intel chips in the radeon r1xx/r2xx timeframe were i810/i815 devices which don't even have kms support. R100 is ~12 years old at this point. No one is really actively working on devices that old anymore.

          Well, I am talking about several dedicated chips and a wonderful mobile card and in our old Dell Latitude D600.

          I still have a sweet spot for these cards - playing classic Linux games like Quake3, Shogo, Soldier of Fortune...

            Old doesn't mean useless. The i740 was good enough for glquake at 640x480.

              radeon igp 345m and 350m were shipped in sony vaios/dells/hps from 2004/2005

              anyways we have been over this

              amd/ati support is non existant.


              I have been using a intel centrino from 2008, I bet if it had any amd chipsets or radeons it would be a clusterfuck instead
