    Phoronix: Intel's Linux Driver Stack Continues Getting Plumbed For FP16 Visuals / Wide Color Gamut

    Among the recent projects by Intel's open-source graphics driver crew for Linux has been supporting FP16 visuals for handling wide color gamut with a focus on Android support in particular. A big set of Mesa patches for this effort have now been posted...

    Sounds interesting. Here's a list of Android phones that have Intel IGPs:

        And here is a list of Android phones that can run the mainline kernel with best hardware support:

          Well there is the now extinct Intel Realsense phone.

          I do have a Lenovo Yoga tab 2 with Intel IGP.

          It's interesting to see that this work is for Android.......AFAIK, no phones with Intel CPU/GPU are available or announced for consumers. Is Intel making a comeback in the smartphone department? Is this for Android tablets? Is this related to Lakefield somehow?

              Does this work only benefit Intel or because it's contributed to Mesa other drivers using Mesa can benefit too? Is there a chart somewhere of Mesa and nvidia support for these new display features?

                Intel did make an Atom-based SoC w/ integrated graphics. I know ASUS shipped some Intel-based phones, but the few I found all used PowerVR.

                Anyway, why do you immediately think "phones"? Android is used on lots of devices, besides phones and tablets. Not least of all would be Chromebooks, various TV sticks, and even some TVs. Not sure, but I assume also some in-car entertainment consoles.

                  I'm not sure that ever shipped in volume. I seem to remember they stopped accepting pre-orders, before the ship date. Probably only a few prototypes were ever made, and everyone else got refunds.
