    Phoronix: Intel Arc Graphics Running On Fully Open-Source Linux Driver

    Intel's GPUs from the consumer desktop Arc Graphics hardware to the Intel Data Center Flex GPU Series "Arctic Sound M" and forthcoming Xe HPC Ponte Vecchio are built around fully open-source drivers. A common misconception or confusion I've heard many times over the past number of months has been questioning whether Intel's discrete GPU driver support on Linux is open-source or is closed-source, etc. Well, it's fully open-source aside from the usual firmware caveat and running on Linux. Here is some initial commentary with running the Intel Arc Graphics A380 on Linux!

    Looking forward for the next articles. Hopefully the current state of the drivers will allow some games to run.

    PS: Michael, could you check others things besides games, like multi-monitor and video acceleration (on VLC and Firefox)?. On the Windows side, the drivers look petty bad outside DX12 games.

      I thought these were the benchmarks!

      Intel forgot about Linux, man.... (but it's fine since it still is a work in progress)

      Let's hope the next card has Linux printed on the box when support for it becomes stable.

        On Windows, only their DX12 and Vulkan drivers are currently well optimized, but the other drivers for older api's are not. Oh and they support DX9 via D3D9On12.
        So it's interesting to have some comparison to Windows as well.

          Considering that dx9-dx11 can go through DXVK, those GPUs should run games a lot better under linux.

            Nice on the open source drivers but it's not enough. These discrete GPUs are DoA. Late. Slow. incomplete. Rumours flying that they'll meet their maker Xeon Phi-style.

            Intel would be well advised to look to the future, take this IP and stick it on-package with a huge memory bus, M1-style, and forget about dGPUs. Remember math coprocessors? No you probably don't. Exactly.

              Waiting for benchmarks and if can include some av1 hardware encode benchmarks



              For send jensen and su to hell and dont care upscalers, raytracing and other crap from them

                4:4:4 H.264 let's go!

                AMD never catches up
                Every new VCN revision adds nothing

                  4:2:0 is enough for everyone but you...

                    4:2:0 is enough for picture, video and game.

                    4:4:4 looks better for desktop capture.
