    Phoronix: Intel Aiming For Their Gallium3D Driver To Be Viable By Mesa 19.2, Default By EOY 2019

    Following questions from our forum goers, there's now an overview of the current state of Intel's new "Iris" Gallium3D driver and its road-map for the remainder of the year in being the company's next-gen OpenGL driver that should be in especially good shape by the time Icelake "Gen 11" hardware arrives...

      Does this involve VAAPI support through Mesa?

        Has somebody tried gallium9? Does just work?

          Good to know that Intel realized that they would eventually need a Gallium driver

            Isn't Intel Media Driver should be used instead of Mesa VAAPI implementation? As I understand it more advanced and also support Wayland. It's packages and available in Ubuntu 19.04, including free and non-free version.

                I ran vainfo against both versions (from git) and the Mesa one has more things listed

                  VAAPI works with Radeons on Wayland, so the Mesa driver supports it as well.

                    I wonder - will this new driver support older iGPUs? Sandybridge, Haswell, etc?

                    I could use some Vulkan working on my old Sandybridge laptop
