    Default Best driver for Intel Core i3 integrated graphics?

    As this seems not yet to be covered in openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users I am asking here.

    The Motherboard is an Asus P7H55-M Pro with Intel Core i3 530@2.93GHz. openSUSE 11.3 assigns the i915 driver by default:

    Code:
    # lspci -vk
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 12) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
            Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 8383
            Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 30
            Memory at f7800000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
            Memory at e0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
            I/O ports at bc00 [size=8]
            Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled]
            Capabilities: [90] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit-
            Capabilities: [d0] Power Management version 2
            Capabilities: [a4] PCI Advanced Features
            Kernel driver in use: i915
    Is this the best choice or are there other (newer?) drivers?

    The i915 kernel module comes as part of the intel driver (inside the xorg-x11-driver-video rpm) and that is described in the opensuse graphic card practical theory guide, albeit I concede its not obvious to anyone who has not looked at this a bit. In such a case, one can also check the contents of a graphic driver rpm to see EXACTLY what is inside (for driver support) and there is guidance here for that:
    although I concede that can be difficult for anyone who is not a long-in-the-tooth average user (like me) or an expert user (of which I am not one).

    There are a lot of i3 and i5 devices showing up now with Integrated graphics, and the situation is in a bit of flux wrt support for those devices. As soon as things setting down that I can get a handle as to the exact support, I may update the guides (or someone else who understands this better can also do so). Note I do NOT have this hardware, and that makes it incredibly difficult to provide further information.

    Other than the "intel" driver (that contains the i915) the only other recent driver I know of is the IEGD , but information on users using that is somewhat limited. The IEGD is a proprietary graphic driver and one needs to download and install separately (but ONLY do so if one's hardware is supported). The IEGD page notes it supports:
    1. Intel System Controller Hub US15W, US15WP and US15WPT
    2. Intel Q45, G41 and G45 Express chipsets
    3. Mobile Intel GM45, GL40 and GS45 Express chipsets
    4. Intel Q35 Express Chipset
    5. Mobile Intel GME965 and GLE960 Express chipsets
    6. Intel Q965 Express Chipset
    7. Mobile Intel 945GSE and 945GME Express chipsets
    8. Intel 945G Express Chipset
    9. Mobile Intel 910GMLE and 915GME Express chipsets
    10. Intel 915GV Express Chipset
    11. Intel Atom™ processor 400/500 series
    and as near as i can determine, NONE of those follow into the category of the integrated graphics that comes with an i5 or i3 processor (but I really do not know). In particular, since I do not have that hardware, I have to rely on posts on others in order to provide more guidance.

    The difficult is the majority of Linux users, once they have it working, stop posting and provide NO INFORMATION, hence making it very difficult to update/write graphic card guides. Most of these users forget we are a volunteer community, and we survive and thrive ONLY on the volunteer efforts of our users.

    When I read this phoronix article on the Core i3 integrated graphics it reads to me that the "intel" driver is the driver you should be using in Linux. Phoronix have this to say:

    In regards to the on-die GPU, the Clarkdale IGP is supported by the Linux 2.6.33 kernel DRM and is also supported by the xf86-video-intel DDX driver and Mesa after being previously known as the IGDNG with there being initial support for this new Intel graphics processor more than six months ago. Subsequent updates to the Intel IGDNG support delivered a new shader compiler and other improvements.
    The xf86-video-intel is the same as the "intel" driver that I am referring to.

    A further note about Intel graphic drivers, and that is the performance of Intel graphic drivers on Linux lags their behaviour under MS-Windows.

    This is noted clearly in this recent (25-Nov-2010) Phoronix article .

    I note the Core i3 integrated graphics terminology is "Clarkdale" for desktops, and "Arrandale" for laptops. There are bugs in the 2.12 Intel driver for the Clarkdale/Arrandale, where from what I have read, at least one of the "Arrandale" bugs is reported fixed in the 2.13 Intel driver. Unfortunately only the 2.12 driver is available for openSUSE-11.3, where the 2.13 Intel driver is not (yet) nominally available for openSUSE-11.3, and can't be installed without doing a custom non-SuSE-GmbH supported download/install from the Xorg : X11 repository (or doing a custom compile one's self).

    If one is having major problems with a Core i3 Arrandale graphic device on their PC, and if one wishes to try the Intel-2.13 driver, then take a look at this thread: Intel Arrandale graphics and kwin compositing issues in 11.3+KDE4.5.3 ... in particular post#2, #4, and #5 in that thread, where guidance for updating is indirectly provided. Note I do NOT recommend updating unless one is a sold-average Linux user, or an advanced Linux user. Also note that there is a reasonable chance the cutting edge X11 : Xorg repository Intel driver will break one's system completely, forcing a re-install. In addition, even if the updated 2.13 driver works, nominal xorg openSUSE updates could break things again. Plus one should REMOVE the xorg : x11 repos immediately after any updates.

    So I recommend extreme caution and only update if one has no other choice.

    Reference driver hardware information, for PCI devices I find that 'lspi' command with more optimal arguements (than used above in 1st post) is useful. What works better for me, to obtain device-ID and vendor-ID information, is :
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk

    On an Intel i5-430M (an "Arrandale"), with onboard Intel GMA HD graphics (aka "Ironlake"), and without switchable graphics, I have a separate openSUSE 11.3 installation, with two out-of-stream changes:

    Kernel: 2.6.37-rc3-git1-5 (source: Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_11.3)

    Xorg from Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.3.

    While I can not say this is the best or optimum driver, it does work with the Arrandale/Ironlake combination. There are boot and suspension considerations detailed here - The "Black Screen" on Boot .... a Surprise !.

    The updated Xorg/intel drivers also appear to function with the (current) mainstream kernel (2.6.34.7-0.5). The 2.12 Intel drivers are partway there, and the 2.13 drivers seem to experience the power management problems associated with the "eDP" facility. This seems to only be an issue at boot-time, or susspension/hibernation from the Login screen.

    The above environment is used only for testing, until driver nirvana is attained, hopefully beginning with 11.4.

    I'd wager lots of disappointed Arrandale users are now searching the internet for a new opensource driver called "nirvana" to solve their problems.

    Thank you all for your thoughtful and friendly contributions, especially oldcpu. I agree that these Intel processors with integrated GPU, namely i3 and i5 (and - partially - i7) are coming to the mass market now. After reading the sources you provided, I come to the conclusion, that the i915 driver is the right one (at least for the time being). It does work, but it is far from ideal. I opened the System Monitor (for CPU load) and seamonkey, and noticed, that scrolling the openSUSE forums with the mouse wheel within seamonkey peaks one of the four CPU cores up to 70%. I don't complain, as my main working tool is the command line within Konsole, but other users doing games may have a different experience.

    Playing a video from youtube (e.g the wonderful fractal zoom YouTube - Fractal Zoom (HD) to 6.066 e228 (2^760) Mandelbrot - (Last Lights On)) makes two cores busy averaging 20% load and the other two at 40% to 60%.

    Some additional information as suggested: My CPU is an i3 "Clarkdale". The motherboard Asus P7H55-M has the Intel H55 Express chipset, Realtek 8112L Gigabit LAN controller and Realtek 8-channel audio.

    Interesting ! My wife just bought a a PC with the i3 "clarkdale" and the Asus P7H55-M motherboard. However I also had her purchase a very inexpensive nVidia G210 graphic card, and we plan to use that for the near term, ... at least until the Intel driver situation is sorted.

    The PC just arrived today, and this weekend we hope to setup an OS on it.

    The planning thread is here: Wife orders new PC with no OS ... possible openSUSE candidate

    I'm bad !! She bought a PC with the Core i7 Arrandale and the Asus P7H55-M motherboard. There is a BIG difference between a Core i3 and a Core i7.
