Aside from all the Linux gaming news this week, the past few days were also particularly exciting due to Intel's launch of the much-anticipated Ivy Bridge processor line-up. There were launch-day Linux benchmarks of the Intel Core i7 3770K on Phoronix plus many more articles are currently in the publishing pipeline.

The Intel Ivy Bridge Linux coverage this week included the Core i7-3770K Linux review, Intel Ivy Bridge HD 4000 open-source graphics review, and the open-source Linux GPU showdown (Intel Ivy Bridge vs. NVIDIA vs. Radeon Gallium3D).

Many more articles are in the pipe for Ivy Bridge on Linux, including:
- A comparison of various compiler tuning options on Ivy Bridge for GCC 4.7 and LLVM/Clang 3.1.

- Comparing LLVM/Clang, GCC, DragonEgg, and other code compiler performance on the Core i7 3770K processor.

- A comparison of the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge OpenGL graphics performance under Microsoft Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Linux.

- Seeing how well the Ivy Bridge Linux graphics driver has evolved already across Mesa and various Linux kernel releases.

- Testing various Intel Z77 motherboards under Linux.

- Benchmarks of Intel Ivy Bridge under Solaris and *BSD too.

- Intel SNA 2D acceleration on Ivy Bridge.

As a quick side test from this weekend now that I'm back in the office, here's a very quick test looking at the image quality difference between Intel Ivy Bridge (i7-3770K / HD 4000 graphics) and Radeon Gallium3D (a Radeon HD 4770 graphics card) when using the same Mesa 8.1-devel snapshot and Linux 3.4 kernel DRM.

This quick image quality comparison with Nexuiz from the two graphics processors on their respective open-source Mesa drivers can be properly viewed on OpenBenchmarking.org in the original SVG/PNG form along with the hardware/software system details and captured system logs. Plus other Intel Core i7 3770K benchmarks are continuing to be pushed to OpenBenchmarking.org via the Phoronix Test Suite.
