    Phoronix: Intel Iris Plus Ice Lake Graphics Run Great With Mesa 19.3's Gallium3D Driver

    The Intel "Gen11" Iris Plus Graphics on Ice Lake are a big upgrade over earlier Intel graphics generations but the gains are even more enticing if making use of their new Gallium3D OpenGL Linux driver...

    This cries out for a Ryzen APU in the graphics. Obviously wait for the latest software updates for the drivers. I’d love to see Intel catch up.

      I hope we will now see even more improvements which benefit both big drivers, iris and radeon. This looks like a great example of mutual benefit.

        Those are some pretty healthy improvements, especially for a new driver.

        Everyone always judges Intel's GPUs based on 3D performance, but that's not what they're built for (nor should they be). Intel's graphics handle stuff like transcoding and media production software much better than any competing chip from either AMD or Nvidia (at least in Windows).
        Even in Linux, the 3D performance is as good as it needs to be. It can handle stuff like compositing effects and WebGL apps very smoothly. If you bought an all-Intel platform and expected to play games, you made a mistake.

          Does it support Gallium-Nine and APIs like VDPAU and OpenMAX out-of-the-box or does a Gallium driver need to support that specifically?

            Yep. I find Intel integrated graphics to be superior to AMD and NVIDIA for my general, personal, desktop computing needs. Very low power, reliable, performs fast enough and cheap (it's right there on the CPU that I already bought).

            I also had out-of-the-box, KMS support from my Intel graphics hardware before any NVIDIA and AMD hardware. That's history now though as AMD also have that working out-of-the-box. IDK what the state is with NVIDIA.

            For intensive 3D stuff I currently prefer AMD over Intel and NVIDIA.

              It's really great to see how much better the new driver performs.

              I think this Intel chip might outperform RR2 but it's also a lot more expensive with it's recommended price $426.

                Nine mostly works, people have been using it. Media has special hardware that the driver would need to light up, so no VDPAU/OpenMAX for now.

                  Thanks for the info.
