    Phoronix: Intel UHD Graphics 630 With Gallium3D Yields Roughly Radeon HD 5750 Linux Performance

    For those wondering how Intel's new Gallium3D-based OpenGL driver is performing relative to various NVIDIA and AMD discrete graphics cards, here are some quick tests of older/lower-end parts...

    There are several, but the most catastrophic one to me has been
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102322
    - unfixed for > 1.5 years.

    For an overview of other unfixed amdgpu issues, see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist...resolution=---

    I can work on Linux systems with Intel iGPUs for a year without ever rebooting.
    The amdgpu driver, in contrast, in its most recent version, crashes on me every day, at the same mundane tasks. And the frequency of crashes got worse over the last year, not better.
    I really hope that with the Xe GPUs there will be an alternative that is both fast and stable.

    Vega or Polaris?

    And they dont need a 500W PSU.
    And they don't need water cooling of whatever was needed.
    And the heatsink does not weight 1kg.
    And it does not take up 500x4x10 cm ...

    So yeah, well done intel and thanks for supporting Linux.
    Interestingly, AMD didn't need any of those things, either. You are describing a 9-series enthusiast part, not a 7-series 'light gaming' card. As the once-owner of an HD 6850, I am not surprised to look and see that the 5750 was a single-fan product with a small heat sink and which barely used the 6-pin power connector.

    And Intel supports graphics virtualization, which Nvidia and AMD still doesn't support at all for consumer graphics.

    I guess it also should be noted that the Intel iGPU comes in two flavours. the (U)HD which are the ones without eDRAM and the Intel Iris Plus which are the ones with eDRAM (also, the Intel Iris Plus are GT3e which are quite a bit beefier than their counterpart GT2).

    The Intel Iris Plus are the 640 (64MB eDRAM), 650 (64MB) and 655 (128MB), and are - among other places - encountered in the NUCs that are i5 or higher.

    I'm impressed with the graphics of my NUC7i5 (Iris Plus 640) and so far my main bottleneck is overheating when pushing both the CPU and the GPU for prolonged time without a minor downclock of the CPU (that and that Intel seem to source jet-engines rather than fans).

    I've got an Intel 655 and a Ryzen 2400g and, as expected, the 2400g is a much better experience although the 655 is about twice as fast as the 630 (single channel) in my cheap HP laptop. I've not tried Gallium for Intel but am hopeful because there's still the flashing issue with games like Crysis.

    That said, the size and power consumption of my NUC with its 8259u is truly impressive, and it can even play a few old games, preferably ten year old games like Crysis but it passes the "Does it play Crysis?" test.

    This looks pretty good. Considering my experience with Intel's GPUs, I might want to stick with their hardware, especially considering their upcoming dedicated hardware.
