    Phoronix: Mesa 20.3 Supports Intel Alder Lake Gen12 Graphics

    Last week Intel open-source engineers began publishing Linux kernel patches for the "Alder Lake S" graphics support. That work should be found in the Linux 5.11 cycle being christened as stable in early 2021. In user-space, Alder Lake graphics patches also appeared for their OpenCL / oneAPI Level Zero compute stack and now merged into Mesa 20.3 as well for OpenGL / Vulkan support...

    Great that Intel got the code already in place before the hardware is shipped.
    How is it going for AMD when it comes to drivers being ready before hardware release?

      I dont know the actual state of AMD upcoming products driver but AFAIK in the mesa stack there is some ongoing work for sienna cichlid, navy flunder ..navi10+ and so on.

      e.g.https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/...&search=sienna
      https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/...ed&search=navy
      https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/...search=GFX10.3

      here some in tree works for amdgpu for kernel 5.10
      https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...=grep&q=sienna
      kernel 5.9 has also a lot of stuff
      https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...=grep&q=sienna

      sienna cichlid tags can be seen in those repos since several month.
      First Kernel with Sienna taged patches is 5.9.

      some addition 4 month old https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment...y_big_navi_as/

        You have to admit, Intel may have their process node all screwed up, but they definitely are on top of their display drivers, especially in Linux.

            Yeah, and not just display. Ethernet, WiFi, sound, USB etc. drivers are also finished ahead of time and just work. Whereas other manufacturers always seem to have some problems or the other with their Linux drivers.
