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 and Mesa communities to
continuously improve and enhance the drivers, support for this new chipset
is provided through the 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.

In addition to Intel® 965GM chipset support, the 2.0 driver adds
native video mode programming support for all chipsets from i830 forward.
The driver supports automatic video mode detection and selection, monitor
hot plug, dynamic extended and merged desktops and per-monitor screen
rotation. These Intel-developed features are built in to the 1.3
X server release and will eventually be supported across most of the open
source video drivers.

    "Intel's committment to providing high-quality drivers
     that meet the needs of the mobile Linux community
     is second to none."
