Linux 4.1 Kernel Benchmarks With An Intel Core i7 IVB System

Yesterday I ran some fresh tests of Intel Ivy Bridge on the latest Mesa Git code to see if the performance has changed much recently for the slightly-older generation of Intel HD Graphics. Today I've done some similar tests in kernel-space with the Linux 4.1 kernel.

Mesa Git OpenGL Tests With Intel Ivy Bridge Graphics

Most often these days when running Intel Linux graphics tests at Phoronix it's with Haswell, Broadwell, or Bay Trail hardware. However, in being curious if there's any performance improvements for slightly older hardware with Mesa 10.6 or Mesa 10.7-devel Git, I've run some fresh Ivy Bridge numbers.

Intel Is Making Some Progress With Compute Shaders

One of the big extensions of OpenGL 4.3 and also a requirement of OpenGL ES 3.1 is support for compute shaders. While the work isn't complete yet, Intel's open-source developers are making progress on GL_ARB_compute_shader support.

Intel Bay Trail & Cherry Trail CPUs To Run Faster With Linux 4.1

While the big ACPI and power management changes were sent in more than one week ago for the Linux 4.1 kernel, another batch of ACPI/PM work was sent in this weekend. One of these last-minute changes should end up significantly benefiting the performance of modern Intel Atom Bay/Cherry Trail SoCs.

Ubuntu 15.04 Brings Better Intel Performance For CS:GO & TF2

With the release of Ubuntu 15.04 coming this week I've been busy running some fresh comparison benchmarks between the "Vivd Vervet" and former versions of Ubuntu Linux. For Intel HD Graphics users, in this article are two quick results showing how the performance of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2 has improved on the open-source Intel Linux graphics driver over the past six months between Ubuntu 14.10 and 15.04.

Initial Intel Broxton Support Might Come To Linux 4.1

Daniel Vetter of Intel today sent in more code for DRM-Next that in turn will be merged for the Linux 4.1 kernel. It was also signaled that the initial hardware enablement of the graphics processor on Intel's upcoming "Broxton" SoC might happen for this next version of the Linux kernel.

Intel Adds HEVC Encode API To VA-API

Intel previously committed an H.265 / HEVC video decoding API to the video acceleration VA-API interface. The Intel VA-API developers have now complemented that by adding a HEVC encode API to this open-source GPU-based video acceleration library.

Linux 3.19, 3.20/4.0 Doesn't Do Much For Intel HD 5500 Performance

Yesterday I ran some benchmarks from the new Core i3 Broadwell NUC to see how the latest Mesa Git affects the OpenGL performance for the Core i3 5010U chip with HD Graphics 5500. Today I'm complementing that testing to see if the latest Linux kernel Git makes any difference for this low-end, low-power Broadwell chip.
