    Phoronix: It's Easy Trying Out Intel's OpenGL 4.2 Mesa Driver On Ubuntu 16.04

    With today marking the milestone of Intel's Mesa driver jumping ahead to OpenGL 4.2 compliance after just yesterday hitting OpenGL 4.0, I decided to try out the Mesa Git code of the i965 driver on an Ubuntu 16.04 system...

    Hopefully a few more games will run.

      Wondering if any backports will be available, for example to the 14.04 LTS.

        I'd actually like to see any kind of list that shows which games will now be playable (or better which games require different opengl versions to run)

          The easiest way to get recent mesa in any linux distribution(CentOS, Ubuntu, etc) is use my Gears on Gallium docker image or my Live CD.
          From docker you can run any native or wine games, pst tests with mesa\llvm git and are not afraid to break a working system.
          Gears on Gallium 2016.05.17 iso and docker images with mesa-git opengl 4.2 for intel and 4.3 for radeon with many fixes (gallium-nine, unreal tournament 4 GLSL 430)

            Has anyone gotten SNOW (CryEngine 4th gen) to run on the open source drivers? It's not working on i965 (Skylake) or radeonsi (Tonga) for me which are exposing GL 4.2 & GL 4.3 (via an extra patch) respectively

            It's a free game on steam and looks quite fun

              The PPA also currently works with 14.04. I'd suggest to upgrade to 16.04, however.
