    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. Besides the kernel changes queued up for the Linux 3.13 kernel, the Broadwell OpenGL/3D driver support has turned up in a Mesa Git branch...

    Don't read too much into the thread counts...I simply copied them from Haswell GT3, and left this comment:
    /* Thread counts and URB limits are placeholders, and may not be accurate. */

    As usual, real thread counts will come later.

    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.
