Phoronix on Graphics
With Linux 4.5 expected this weekend, Daniel Vetter of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center has offered a glimpse of what's coming with the i915 graphics driver changes of Linux 4.6.
We've already covered many of the Intel graphics changes of Linux 4.6 like frame-buffer compression and panel self refresh by default, but his blog post today is a nice, quick summary if you're behind on your reading.
While the main AMDGPU pull request for Linux 4.6 happened back in February, another pull request was sent in today with more AMDGPU DRM fixes into DRM-Next that in turn will make it for Linux 4.6.
First, see that earlier article if you aren't familiar with the changes of the AMDGPU/Radeon code for the upcoming Linux 4.6 cycle. There was also this Radeon/AMDGPU fixes pull from earlier in the week while Alex Deucher has now squeezed in another pull request.
To many users, Intel's codename of Bay Trail for the recent Atom SoCs would be more accurate if it was named Bay Fail.
