Intel HD 2500 Ivy Bridge Graphics On Linux

Filed under

Hardware

Since the launch of Intel's Ivy Bridge processors earlier this year there have been many benchmarks of the Intel Core i7 3770K with its integrated HD 4000 graphics and then more recently have been Linux testing of the Intel Core i7 3517UE from the CompuLab Intense-PC and Intel Core i7-3615QM as found on the Apple Retina MacBook Pro. The newest Intel Ivy Bridge chip to play with at Phoronix is the Intel Core i5 3470, which bears an Intel HD 2500 graphics core. In this article are benchmarks of the Intel HD 2500 Ivy Bridge graphics with the open-source Intel Linux graphics driver stack.

The HD 2500 graphics is Intel's low-end third-generation HD Graphics for Ivy Bridge -- similar to the Intel HD 2000 being the Sandy Bridge low-end flavor to the higher-end HD 3000 graphics. The Intel HD Graphics 2500 bear six execution units compared to sixteen execution units on the Ivy Bridge HD 4000 graphics or twelve execution units on the Sandy Bridge HD 3000 graphics. The HD 2500 graphics core can clock up to 1150MHz and aside from the lower execution count does sport similar features to the HD 4000 graphics like support for OpenGL 4.0, OpenCL 1.1, DirectX 11, VA-API video acceleration, etc.

Ubuntu Core has the keys to IoT security

In October, a DDoS attack on Dyn's infrastructure took down a big chunk of the internet, making sites like Amazon and Twitter inaccessible. It was the first major attack involving IoT (internet of things) devices. Fortunately, it was also a benign attack: no one got hurt, no one died. However, the next attack could be catastrophic. No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
