Intel Ivy Bridge Benchmarks On Mesa 10.0 With GL 3.3
Written by Michael Larabel in Intel on 20 October 2013 at 07:00 AM EDT. 3 Comments
Most often when running Intel Linux graphics benchmarks these days we're using Haswell hardware since that's where the most exciting developments are now happening with it being the latest-generation Intel products. However, we routinely go back and test older generations of hardware. With it having been a while since last running Mesa benchmarks with Ivy Bridge, especially now this week Mesa 10.0 receiving OpenGL 3.3 support, it's time for some new benchmarks.

From an ASUS Ultrabook with Intel Core i3 "Ivy Bridge" processor bearing HD Graphics 4000, I ran some benchmarks this weekend from Mesa 9.2.2 Git and Mesa 10.0-devel using the respective Git branches as of yesterday evening, 19 October. The benchmark results in full -- and other system details -- are on in 1310194-SO-INTELIVYB06.

Mesa 10.0 is due to be released next month as a three-month update to Mesa 9.2 and besides bringing new OpenGL 3.x and 4.x extensions, there's a few small performance improvements it seems -- I'll be back with more thorough testing soon. Below is just a sampler of the results from the link above.
