    Default Mesa 10.0 Is Declared: OpenGL 3.2 Comes For Intel Linux

    Phoronix: Mesa 10.0 Is Declared: OpenGL 3.2 Comes For Intel Linux

    The core Mesa library and Intel's open-source DRI Mesa driver is now in full compliance with the OpenGL 3.2 specification with GLSL 1.50. As a result, the Mesa version for the next release is being bumped from Mesa 9.3 to Mesa 10.0, as has been expected to be the case for some weeks now. Ahead of the Mesa 10.0 release planned for November, the Intel driver might also reach compliance with OpenGL 3.3 too...

    I can verify that SI is currently running GL 3.0...

    From my 7850 on Manjaro (with latest mesa/llvm):

    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD PITCAIRN
    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.3.0-devel (git-8bc7673)
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

    That's true - kind of funny since Phoronix is specifically where I heard that 4.4 wasn't supported by Catalyst.

    Does 9.3 fix the issues with tearing/vblank/vsync?

    Is there any change 3.3 will be gotten in before release? There seems so little left for 3.3, I was hoping the next release would include 3.2 and 3.3.

    Please AMD, it would be really nice of you to keep up with Intel.

    I'm a little confused. I'm on a 6550D (SUMO), which I thought was an Evergreen derivative and uses r600g, but glxinfo reports this:

    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD SUMO
    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 9.3.0-devel (git-bd19e25 precise-oibaf-ppa+glvdpau)
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

    Anyone know why it doesn't advertise 3.1 support?

    Not sure if this is your problem, but you need a fairly recent version of glxinfo (in mesa demos) to create core contexts - otherwise it only shows 3.0.
