Intel Kaby Lake PCI IDs Opened for Mesa, Libdrm
News and rumors regarding Intel Kaby Lake processors have been around for a while now; back in June we heard of the company’s plans regarding the 7th gen processors after Cannonlake was allegedly delayed. It was later confirmed that Skylake and Kaby were the choice of Intel over Cannonlake.
However, all the hype surrounding Skylake ensured that nothing much was said about Kaby Lake for a while. Now, Phoronix is reporting that the company has published PCI device IDs for graphics processors for Intel Kaby Lake to Mesa and libdrm.
According to what we already know, Kaby Lake will be the successor to Skylake and it is expected to make it out in the markets by late 2016. Devs have been pretty open about the development phase recently.
Here is a list of the PCI IDs that have been committed for different graphics:
- GT1: 0x5902, 0x5906, 0x590A, 0x590B, and 0x590E
- GT1.5: 0x5913, 0x5915, and 0x5917
- GT2: 0x5912, 0x5916, 0x591A, 0x591B, 0x591D, and 0x591E
- GT2F: 0x5921
- GT3: 0x5926, 0x592A, and 0x592B
- GT4: 0x5932, 0x593A, 0x593B, and 0x593D.
Needless to say, out of all these, GT4 are the highest end graphics PCI IDs.
In light of these new developments, it can be speculated that Intel Kaby Lake graphics driver support for open source Linux might be rolling out in the next couple of months.
In previous news we had reported on some more details that had emerged regarding the 7th Gen processors back in November.
