    Phoronix: Have Troubles With 4K Displays On Intel Linux? Try The Linux 4.3 Kernel

    I've been meaning to pass along a bit of advice if you're trying to use Intel HD/Iris Graphics to drive a 4K display: you may need to use the Linux 4.3 kernel...

    I'm on a i7 6700 and more or less have to run 4.3 to get any graphics and 4K on a MST 4k display is not working at all. I have to change the monitor to 4k in 30HZ and no MST to get a picture. and then there is some issue with powesrsave mode (sceeen of) as it often do not come back.

      Yeah, I have issues with intel graphics drivers. I can list a bunch of issues yet unresolved, regardless of driver state.

      I am running xf86-video-intel git. Linux 4.3, Xorg 1.17.4

      * Suspend to ram does not work all the time. Sometimes the display does not light back up, even though the machine seems to be running.
      * Various monitors "go out of sync" when returning from suspend to ram, or when shifting to console. Sometimes with just garbled output.
      * External display take ages to get sync on. It takes half my boot process before the external screen starts.
      * I get GPU hangs when compiling the kernel with IOMMU support.
      * Monitor on external dock always refuses to come back up after suspend to ram.
      * Some 2d rendering issues still exist, but they are rare.
      * A lot of spurious interrupts in the kernel log from the graphics card. ([drm:gen8_irq_handler] *ERROR* The master control interrupt lied (SDE)!)

      The situation has gotten slightly better. Previous releases I had to add several i915 options to the kernel cmd-line to get the gfx to behave somewhat.
      But the situation is still mostly shit. I have run Nvidia stuff for years and NEVER had issues of this magnitude. As far as I am concerned the Nvidia drivers are miles better.

        I think 4.2.3 stable should have the same fixes in it.

        at least later 4.2.x fixed things for me.

            Has anyone been able to connect a 4k monitor?
            Or more specifically a P2715Q from Dell using a Type-C to DP cable?
            While it works great with a 1080p monitor, the 4k will fall in power saving mode and make the whole laptop (XPS 13 9350) crash...
