    This is good news for people like myself. I am trying to slowly transition to GNU distros even for what gaming I can. Discrete AMD GPUs don't work at all and even the Nvidia GTX 7xx series which do run poorly with Nouveau and don't support DXVK. I wouldn't be able to upgrade to a i7-10700K with it's newer GPU until March 2021 so Haswell is a cheap stopgap until then and updates like this help it make my gaming life easier.

    The commit in question implements transform feedback for all gen7 parts. Not sure why the article only talks about HSW.

    I would have loved to have benchmarked it on Phoronix, but 32 bit has been canned on most distro's, I think.
    That sucks. Hopefully things get better.

    As asked, I am replacing you stiiixy. ;-)

    By the way, save the nature and keep hardware that serves well serving well.
    Once it does not serve well your needs, your advice follows.

    As someone with 2 computers running Haswell generation Intel Processors, I'm very thankful for this support.

    I have no plans to get updated hardware for a good while yet, mainly because once I do I'll have to replace most of the components in these systems (updated cpu requires updated mobo, ram, case, power supply, etc). I'll basically be replacing everything but the gfx and the storage at minimum. That probably won't be until one or more of those components bites the dust.

    Hopefully the next system(s) I get (whenever I get them) will last as long as these have.
    There should be no reason an upgrade should require a new case and power supply. In fact, at work, we had an old HP tower (i5 2nd-gen era) that was having some issues. Instead of just buying a new tower, I got a B450 board, a Ryzen 3100, some DDR4 RAM, and an old GT 730 we had lying around (since no iGPU on the 3100). It was actually quite a plug-and-play operation, just a matter of pulling the old board out and sticking the new one in. It still has the original case, power supply, HDD, and even DVD drive, just upgraded CPU/Mobo/RAM. In fact, if you looked at the system, you'd never even know it was upgraded unless you noticed that the Core i5 sticker on the front is replaced with a Ryzen 3 sticker.

    Writing this on my Haswell laptop. I'm on my second battery now and I think I'll keep this laptop for two or three years more until this battery has also lost its edge. I'll probably go for an 8-core ultrabook of similar power envelope then. The battery in this machine is internal but since the bottom comes off easily with a screwdriver it's still easy enough to replace.

    Also my thanks to Mesa developers for this work! I'm probably not using it very much though as I tend to game on other systems than this. Most graphically intensive games are not that great on i5-4200U
