    Phoronix: Linux 6.2 Will No Longer Treat Intel Arc Graphics As Experimental

    A final batch of drm-intel-next feature patches were submitted on Friday to complement the drm-intel-gt-next patches. Most exciting with this last minute PR for Linux 6.2 is the DG2/Alchemist discrete GPU support no longer being treated as experimental...

          New benchmarks would be really cool once this hits.

            Should also note the Intel Arc graphics cards require Wayland. Having the best experience using Wayland/Sway desktop.

            X/Xorg with i915 modesetting driver only gives me displays going into power saving mode after starting X/Xorg.

            Most seem to be having good results with Wayland/Sway.

              working "good" on wayfire, another wlroots based DE, still on kernel 6.0 so I have various issues like multigpu and vk issues

                It finally is \ o / , both encoding and decoding, tested with VLC, Firefox and Chromium on XFCE/X11.

                However, for me, in Chromium (and derivatives), Vulkan needs to be disabled, as well as UseChromeOSDirectVideoDecoder; otherwise the video will become a garbled mess. This appears to be a known issue already.

                Let's hope these issues will be sorted soon

                  just tell me is this intel arc gpu really what you hoped for ?

                  i hope for an honest answer.

                    Finally Intel is completing their software stack after(!) launch date, so far I complained about AMD having their software not ready on release date, but now Intel showed me that they can do the same or worse....after buying the DG2 hardware... hmmm, nice move
                    atm. you get new Intel beta drivers every few days/weeks, mostly some 5-10% performance boost for some windows games nobody really plays and some bigger blob for Intel ARC Control software, as if 1GB of driver download/Autostart software with admin rights is not enough - good job
                    but the really good intel (multi-platform) software on github like media-driver, vaapi, onevpl and onevpl-gpu stuff has to run up a score for letting those silly windows-gaming-optimizations getting through in the first place. nice move, Intel management.

                    I just start regretting buying Intel hardware for Linux, Windows is running really fine btw.
