Mesa Git OpenGL Tests With Intel Ivy Bridge Graphics

Most often these days when running Intel Linux graphics tests at Phoronix it's with Haswell, Broadwell, or Bay Trail hardware. However, in being curious if there's any performance improvements for slightly older hardware with Mesa 10.6 or Mesa 10.7-devel Git, I've run some fresh Ivy Bridge numbers.

From an Ubuntu 15.04 x86_64 system with the Linux 3.19 kernel, I ran some tests on an Intel Core i7 3770K Ivy Bridge desktop system in our labs. Compared was the stock Mesa 10.5.2 on Ubuntu 15.04 against Mesa 10.7-devel Git as of this week.

Long story short, the Ivy Bridge numbers weren't really exciting at all with the new Mesa Git code as of the past few months. If you want to explore the numbers, you can find the data on

In these GpuTest cases were the major examples where the Intel IVB performance improved with the latest Mesa.

Don't forget over on you can also look at daily performance figures for Mesa + Linux Git on a variety of systems.
