Following a challenging week for Intel's Sandy Bridge Linux support
in other publications getting the open-source graphics drivers working, Intel came forward to supply us with a Sandy Bridge processor so we can carry out the tests using the needed Linux Kernel / Mesa / DDX / libva Git code. We don't even need to wait for Intel to send out any hardware, as it was hand-delivered today during a meeting with them.
As such, next week the first Intel Sandy Bridge Linux testing should be under-way!
Let's just hope the Linux performance is respectable once everything is running.
