    Phoronix: Intel Developer BLORPs Older Hardware, May Help With Some Bugs

    Intel's Mesa BLORP code has been ported to older "Gen 4" and "Gen 5" integrated graphics hardware, allowing more common code to be used going back to the i965 IGPs...

    This sort of thing plus support for Vulkan extensions on publication is pretty impressive. Imagine if they had a dgpu

      We are the BLORP resistence if futile!

        So this is about the Intel HD 5500?

          This is relevant for some librebootable laptops like ThinkPad X200 and T400.

            My experience with my 5th Gen i5 using IntelĀ® HD Graphics 620.

            4.8 Release version - Does not boot.
            4.9 Release version - Does not boot.
            4.10 Random system freeze, occurs at the very least weekly on Arch and Ubuntu when running no 3D applications. It occurs much more often when running Chromium or OpenGL/WebGL content.
            4.11 Running mainline for 1day, so good so far in terms of system freeze. My wireless drivers stopped working though. I would be surprised if I see no system freeze this week on 4.11

            I'm hoping Raven Ridge does not disappoint as much as Kaby Lake does.

            EDIT: My IntelĀ® HD Graphics 4000 is still rock solid at least.
