Title: Mesa 3D 9.1 brings OpenGL 3.1 support on Radeon GPUs
Post by: philm on 26. February 2013, 09:56:35
The 3D graphics drivers that are available (http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.mesa3d.announce/146) in Mesa 3D (http://mesa3d.org/) 9.1 offer improved support for current and expected-soon graphics chips and promise enhanced 3D performance. The new version of the graphics library, which is typically used by default by Linux distributions for their 3D drivers, now includes an OpenGL driver that, together with a driver in Linux 3.8, supports the graphics core of Intel's Haswell processors. These processors are scheduled to be launched as Core i-4000s in a few months and will supersede Intel's current "Ivy Bridge" generation. more (http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Mesa-3D-9-1-brings-OpenGL-3-1-support-on-Radeon-GPUs-1810213.html)
