    Phoronix: Intel's Gallium3D OpenGL Driver Taps Another Optimization - ~32% For GFXBench

    Intel's new OpenGL Linux driver, their Gallium3D-based "Iris" implementation that is aiming to be the default before year's end, continues making striking progress...

    Cool, as the classic drivers die off, Mesa can just be Gallium. :- )

      It's really good to watch this driver mature!

        I haven't followed the subject, do "modern" AMD drivers use Gallium? I only found https://www.x.org/wiki/GalliumStatus/, but it seems a bit outdated.

          Yes, since at least r300g.

            Yep... there are three Gallium3D drivers that cover everything since R300:

            r300 (R3xx through R5xx)
            r600 (R600 through NI)
            radeonsi (SI through to Navi)

            There is also a "radeon" folder but that is for code shared across the above drivers rather than being a separate driver.
