Intel "The Intel 965GM Express Chipset represents the first mobile product that implements fourth generation Intel graphics architecture. Designed to support advanced rendering features in modern graphics APIs, this chipset includes support for programmable vertex, geometry, and fragment shaders. Extending Intel's commitment to work with the X.org and Mesa communities to continuously improve and enhance the drivers, support for this new chipset is provided through the X.org 2.0 Intel driver and the Mesa 6.5.3 releases. These drivers represent significant work by both Intel and the broader open source community."

Mesa GL doesn't even come close to working properly with OpenGL games like Quake and DoomIII. Sorry but open source video drivers are just junk!


Nothing comes close to Nvidia's driver packages for Solaris, FreeBSD and Linux.
