Intel Broadwell HD Graphics Tests With Mesa 10.7 Git

While Mesa 10.7 just recently entered development, the Git code is often benchmarked on Phoronix, and with not having delivered any Intel Broadwell Linux graphics tests in some time, here's the latest numbers as of this weekend.

The weekend Linux benchmarking was with the Intel Core i3 Broadwell NUC Kit and of Ubuntu 15.04 x86_64 when using its stock Mesa 10.5.4 packages and then upgrading to Mesa 10.7-devel Git using the Oibaf PPA for easy reproducibility.

The results of this Mesa 10.5 stable vs. 10.7-devel Git testing wasn't terribly exciting -- even for Broadwell -- hence this quick, one-page Sunday article.

Pixmark Volplosion was faster and that's about it per this result file with all of the results. Given though that Mesa 10.7 is nearing OpenGL ES 3.1 and OpenGL 4.0~4.2 compliance, the results should be more interesting later in the summer.
