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.

Mesa is software rendering. Why would you want Mesa. You want good drivers that avoid you using Mesa rendering.

Sorry but open source video drivers are just junk!

Most of them, but not Intel's. Intel is doing their *OWN* drivers and releasing them. They have the specs, they've the money to hire programmers....their drivers are fast, they're feature-complete, unlike other crappy opensource drivers


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

Are you jocking? Installing Nvidia propietary drivers is a pain in the ass. Nothing comes close to open source Intel drivers that get compiled and included along the rest of opensource drivers.
