Intel's open-source Linux graphics developers remain confident that we're likely to the final chapter of the lets-try-rc6-by-default-one-more-time saga. The RC6 power-savings feature for Sandy Bridge graphics hardware should hopefully be -- finally -- sane to keep enabled by default.

While Intel's Ivy Bridge launch is imminent, and I'm still digging through information concerning today's Intel Valleyview code drop that brings Ivy Bridge graphics to their next-generation Atom as they do away with PowerVR graphics for their SoCs, more graphics driver code to enable Haswell support has landed this evening.

It's a very good week for open-source graphics drivers. Besides AMD releasing open-source support for Southern Islands and Trinity, Intel released the first bits of open-source Haswell support too. This afternoon, Intel has released open-source driver support for Valley View. Valley View is a CedarView-like Atom SoC, but rather than being crippled with PowerVR graphics, it has Ivy Bridge graphics.
