Intel Intel Pushes Open-Source Support For Ivy Bridge

Michael Larabel of Phoronix discusses the push by Intel for Open-Source Support of Ivy Bridge

Just as I had said two weeks ago: expect Intel "Ivy Bridge" open-source Linux support to be pushed to the Linux 2.6.40 kernel. This code was pushed today in preparation for the Linux 2.6.40 kernel. It will land in a similar manner to Valve's Source/Steam native Linux support coming soon, early AMD Bulldozer benchmarks, ATI/AMD's "Orka" Linux driver support in the past, etc. Here's Intel's Ivy Bridge code that enables next-generation hardware support.

The start of the Intel Ivy Bridge patch series starts here. With the Linux 2.6.40 kernel it enables basic VGA and DisplayPort (DP is untested right now) output for the next-generation hardware, but expect much more refined support coming in succeeding kernel releases. This initial code adds two mobile chipsets and three desktop chipsets to the Ivy Bridge support series.
