    Phoronix: Intel Has 20~30 Full-Time Linux Graphics Developers

    It was revealed today at the Free Open-Source Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) that Intel through their Open-Source Technology Center is currently over two dozen full-time graphics driver developers. They're also looking to hiring more developers...

    Thank you Intel and God bless your efforts and your next CEO to carry the torch of innovation and generosity.

      It's also about resources

      It's worth noting that Intel has about ten times the number of employees AMD has, which makes AMD the first in terms of percentage of employees working on open source drivers.

        I'm sorry but I can't take Intel seriously in graphics until they support OpenGL properly.
        I'm sorry to hear that. In the meanwhile I just continue to enjoy Intel Free Software solutions

          How many games require a version of OpenGL higher than 3.0? I can play Tesseract on nouveau, radeon or intel drivers just fine (it runs with no rendering glitches, though it is slow).

            Clearly not qualified to produce much work, relative to the talent at AMD.

              In three years you'll be hardpressed to find any product < OpenGL ES 3.x for embedded and OpenGL 4.x for consoles/desktops.

                Dammit Intel, can you please make some hardware capable of driving the 2560x1600 resolution of my 30" Dell LCD already!?! I have the pre-display-port model, and none of your chipsets thus far will drive that resolution over DVI

                  Just like DX11 was released in 2009, and still in 2013 the majority of games targets dx9?

                    Show me the SOURCE CODE of your claim.

                      Hey, there's a whole Internet out there you can troll! No need to do it on Phoronix.

                      Yeah, lack of dual-link DVI is a bit unfortunate for older gen, but basically once DP was released there's no point for them to waste die space (which is pretty important on a CPU package) on dual-link DVI, since if people need to deliver hi-res output to old screens they can do it using an active DP->DVI adapter...
