Good news for fan of Arm devices, as developer Alyssa Rosenzweig has announced that the Panfrost driver for Mali GPUs now supports the new Valhall architecture.

This open source graphics driver now has fully-conformant OpenGL ES 3.1 on Mali-G57, a Valhall GPU, with the final Mesa patches landing and the kernel patches are queued for merge upstream.

When it comes to hardware, it means the MediaTek Chromebooks with the MT8192 and MT8195 system-on-chips like the ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3 will work out of the box with accelerated graphics providing you have Mesa 22.2 and an appropriate kernel.

Seems it's a nice improvement over the previous generation chip too, with better Vulkan performance and hardware changes to improve other problems they had with the previous generation.

I wonder how far we are of being able to play... lets say, Shadow Of the TR on a Chrome OS device? or this is achievable today?
