Support is present in an experimental way for I am also interested in this topic and I have located this supplier in the UK where the website states “tested with Ubuntu” I haven’t purchased the PC yet because I still want to do a bit more research. Join Date Dec Beans Therefore, I feel confident in assuming that at least by the time x45000 This bug also occurs in GMA based laptops.

Intel has released production version drivers for bit and bit Windows Vista that enable the Aero graphics. Legal Disclaimer, Privacy Policy Contact. Intel describes this as “a flexible, programmable architecture that supports shader-based technology, 2D, 3D and advanced 3D graphics, high-definition video decode, and image processing.

This is just a bump to indicate that I’m interested as well for exactly the same reasons. The available Linux drivers do not support much of this. Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free.


It supports DirectX version 9. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. In addition, once Gallium3D goes mainstream with users they will be able to benefit from a generic GPU video decodingwhich relies upon the graphics processor’s shaders.

Earlier this month Intel had announced the GMA X series, which is their latest and greatest when it comes to integrated graphics processors.

The x5400 architecture of GMA systems supported only a few functions in hardware, and relied on the host CPU to handle at least some of the graphics pipeline, further decreasing performance.


Graphics Drivers for Linux*

Drivers are shipped with Windows Vista since beta versions became available in mid The drivers were mainly developed by Intel and Tungsten Graphics under contract since the chipsets’ documentation were not publicly available for a long time. However, with the introduction of Intel’s 4th generation of GMA architecture GMA X inmany of the functions are now built into the hardware, providing an increase in performance.

Integrated graphics found on B43, Q43 and Q45 chipsets.

However, the architecture still lacks support for hardware transform and lighting and the similar vertex shader technologies.

I want to know if that graphics processor is supported in Karmic and if it will run the basic desktop effects. Some of the other specs for the Intel GMA X series include 10 unified shader processors, hardware vertex shaders, Linux support for hardware accelerated H.
