    Phoronix: Intel Graphics Mature Greatly With The Linux Kernel

    As a prelude to the forthcoming Windows 7 vs. OS X 10.8 vs. Ubuntu Linux benchmarks that are looking at how Intel OpenGL graphics compare between the operating systems, here's some Intel Sandy Bridge benchmarks that provide a historical look at how the Linux kernel -- and upgrades to the Intel Direct Rendering Manager driver within the kernel -- have matured over time. On average, the Intel Linux graphics performance is up about 30% over the course of the past few kernel releases this year.

      Any improvements to expect on first generation Intel HD Graphics part of Arrandale/Clarkdale processors ?

        Great article! I'm really interested to know how the Intel gfx performance on the latest Linux drivers compares with Windows now. Are they equal, or is Windows still ahead?

          Better performance and fps is one thing. But what is barely mentioned anywhere is that the Intel driver still woes when dealing with HDMI/DP HBR audio. There still is no support for DTS-HD or TrueHD, neither on SandyBridge nor IvyBridge. Kinda sad...

            I?d also like to know if these improvements are present on Intel HD Graphics (1st gen) hardware.
