Intel In August Intel had announced their new Linux graphics driver website as well as announcing the immediate availability of open-source display drivers for the 965 Express Chipset. This Chipset offers fourth-generation Intel graphics architectures in the form of the GMA 3000 and GMA X3000. Phoronix ran some tests on the Q965 Chipset and GMA 3000 graphics with their open-source drivers, and have their results to share today under GNU/Linux.

meianoite: Intel beginning to take their graphic chips more seriously and to position themselves as the graphics alternative for the open source community, or does it only demonstrate how horrid the ATI drivers for anything non-Windows are?

The article specifically said that the ATI card was driven by the FOSS R300 driver. There was a reference of another article comparing the propritary ATI driver to the FOSS alternative, however. I didn't read it, i don't care for limited-rights software.
