    Phoronix: The Open-Source Linux Graphics Card Showdown

    Earlier this week I provided Intel Core i7 3770K Linux benchmarks for the Ivy Bridge launch-day followed by initial Ivy Bridge Linux HD 4000 graphics benchmarks compared to the Intel HD 2000/3000 Sandy Bridge graphics under Linux and to AMD Fusion on Catalyst and Gallium3D. In this article are more benchmarks of the HD 4000 Ivy Bridge graphics under Linux with Intel's open-source driver, but in this article it is a much larger comparison. This is a full showdown of the Core i7 3770K graphics compared to several discrete NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards when they're using their respective open-source Gallium3D drivers. What graphics hardware is best if you want to use an open-source GPU driver? Find out now.

    I think it's near impossible to tell which curve corresponds to which graphics card in those graphs.

    Needing 766 Watt in idle mode

    Holy thermo-nuclear GPU Batman!! The Radeon HD 4670 idles at 766 Watts??? Surely it must produce a truckload of heat
    I stumble over this typo and found your report in the forum.
    Which power supply can handle such an idle power?
    The cooling system must be hot as a hair-dryer as loud as a plane.

    If you move the mouse over any line, it shows which card it corresponds to. If you have fairly modern browser and get SVG served, of course.

    Well I guess this almost Finalizes my next build sorry AMD looks like I am going with intel .. that on-board GPU does what I need ( VA API)
    and runs doom3 as a bonus to boot
    which means any game I would play .. should work ( UT2004 ect )

    but I will still wait for AMD A10-5800K release .. but it doesn't look good for AMD with their driver support

    I hope their will be another good linux test i7-3770K vs A10-5800K

    looking for lowest power with full support as HTPC

    and something that can do my media encoding

    It's worth remembering that there are different ways to represent colour: the way you are describing is the RGB colour space, and should be treated as 3 separate numbers for (hopefully) obvious reasons. If you use the HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSV_color_space) colour space then it is reasonable to fix the saturations and values and choose equidistant values for the hue.

    I think only SNB shared the 3rd level cache, IVB does not.

    HD4000 linux vs. winsows; windows OGL3.3?

    could we have comparison between Ivybridge OGL linux and Windows drivers? Some time back there was such comparison provided on phoronix for sandybridge and it was very helpful. Thanks!

    I found info here on geeks3d.com that Ivybridge Windows driver supports OGL3.3. Do you see same result?

    Thanks again!

    No, i'm pretty sure starting with Sandy Bridge it's 1 chip on 1 package.

    There is just a pipe between the 2 sections of the chip, so communication between the 2 is exactly the same as if it was on a different chip, but it's built as one.

    AMD iGPUs are the same. Actually, not quite - Sandy/Ivy Bridge share the L3 cache with the GPU, while AMD doesn't have that ability. Unless Trinity adds that, which it might.

    Eventually they will get better integrated, and you'll probably see things like the CPU transferring floating point operations onto the GPU hardware, but i don't know how far out that is.
