    Phoronix: Linux 3.8 To Linux 3.14 Intel DRM Graphics Benchmarks

    The latest benchmarks to share with you all are some tests done of all major Linux kernel releases from Linux 3.8 through Linux 3.13 and including the latest drm-next code that will land in the Linux 3.14 kernel. Here's a look at whether Intel Haswell HD Graphics users can expect any more performance improvements out of Linux 3.14 on the graphics front...

    Right, like I've been saying for 6 months now. Nothing seems to be happening for Haswell, since Kernel 13.10. Same with Mesa, nothing much seems to have happened in the past 6 months or so (in terms of performance). Is it already optimized to the point that future improvements will have to do with added functionality, rather than speed? Is any Intel dev around who could clarify that?

    Thanks!

      I think the intel driver is at parity with their windows drivers.

        If I'm not mistaken, the mes source is here:

        http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mes...ivers/dri/i965

        Seems like a lot of generic activity to me.

        Kernel side, not so much:

        https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/ke...s/gpu/drm/i915

        Maybe the lack of news regarding to this driver does not feel natural given that most Linux drivers move forward *all the time*. I guess it's indeed mature?

        I'm so getting an Intel CPU for my next rig .

          Apparently there still are Sandy Bridge users having GPU hang problems.

          Given AMD's offerings...

            I think driver development is a tough job. It will take a while to work out all the bugs. At least everything is there wrt to the Intel drivers.

            The FX-8350 is nice, but I want a PCIe3 board. The A10-7850 is IMO a disappointment. For another 70 euro's I can get a i7 4770 with has a lot more power than the fx-8350 which rules over the a10-7850.

            Don't really care about graphics. PCIe3 will last longer than sockets 1150, am3+ and fm2+ so that is for later concern.

              "I think driver development is a tough job. "

              especially since intel only has like 1 or guys working on their linux drivers

                Not if you look at the i915 logs and the i965 logs.

                  are they all intel employees?

                  ok even if you have 5 or 6 devs, compare that to the 80+ they have working on their windows drivers
