    Phoronix: Intel Broadwell GPU Support Pushed To Mesa Git Branch

    Earlier today I wrote at length about Intel open-sourcing their Broadwell graphics driver code for Linux support months ahead of the 2014 processor debut.

          I was hoping that Broadwell would put Iris into more laptops yet I continue to see SKU fragmentation.

          Hopefully there's a GT3e part in there.
