Intel Raptor Lake S Graphics Ready For Linux 5.17, Alder Lake P Now Considered Stable
Intel 13th Gen "Raptor Lake" is the successor of Alder Lake and expected in 2022. Details are still light on Raptor Lake while the Intel open-source driver engineers have already been working on enabling the integrated graphics as well as other areas of the RPL platform.
Linux is getting ready for Intel's next Lake.
Last month force_probe is required until running Linux 5.16 where that support was declared stable.
This pull request also has the Intel driver changes around privacy screen support for the eDP support with newer notebooks. There is also 10-bit gamma pipe color support for Display13 hardware, code clean-ups, more DG2 / Alchemist workarounds, fixes for building the driver on non-x86 platforms, and other general graphics driver fixes.
See this drm-intel-next pull for the full list of these latest Intel graphics driver patches now ready for Linux 5.17. This follows earlier pull requests for the Intel driver in Linux 5.17 that added variable rate refresh (VRR) for Ice Lake among other enhancements.
