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.
