    Wrong, Intel stated that they want to merge their Vulkan implementation into Mesa.
    ## VGA ##
    AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
    Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

      No, as covered in multiple articles, all of the current Intel Mesa Vulkan code is heavily designed around Intel specifically and isn't really shared code. AMD is doing their own Vulkan driver stack that they will open-source down the road while the binary release of it will happen in near future.

        Mesa is a central pilar of the linux graphics stck which happendls to include an OpenGL implementation. It hasn't been just OpenGL for a long while

          So will AMD Fiji now be at OpenGL 4.1 with mesa 11.2? I am at 3.0 now with mesa 11.1.2

            You probably need a newer LLVM.

              So I'll need LLVM 3.8 and Mesa 11.2?

                  You're confusing "Mesa" with "the Mesa git repository".

                    When looking at the glxinfo output look for the core profile version that looks like this:
                    Code:
                    OpenGL core profile version string: 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 11.0.6
                    The compatibility profile will be stuck at 3.0 for the forseable future and looks like this:
                    Code:
                    OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 11.0.6
