Mesa 22.3 open source graphics drivers released

Mesa 22.3 is the latest and greatest the open source community has to offer for graphics drivers, and it’s now available with lots of improvements. Announced yesterday, the open source drivers cover the likes of AMD, Intel, ARM and more on Linux.

For people concerned about stability and bugs, it’s always best to wait at least for the first point release update to it like 22.3.1.

Newly supported extensions and features in Mesa 22.3 include:

  • GL_ARB_shader_clock on llvmpipe
  • VK_KHR_shader_clock on lavapipe
  • Mesa-DB, the new single file cache type
  • VK_EXT_attachment_feedback_loop_layout on RADV, lavapipe
  • VK_KHR_global_priority on RADV
  • GL_KHR_blend_equation_advanced_coherent on zink
  • VK_EXT_load_store_op_none on RADV
  • VK_EXT_mutable_descriptor_type on RADV
  • VK_EXT_shader_atomic_float on lvp
  • VK_EXT_shader_atomic_float2 on lvp
  • GL_NV_shader_atomic_float on llvmpipe
  • VK_EXT_image_robustness on v3dv
  • VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state3 on lavapipe
  • VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state3 on RADV & anv
  • VK_EXT_pipeline_robustness on v3dv
  • Mali T620 on Panfrost
  • Shader disk cache on Panfrost
  • Support for R8G8B8, B8G8R8, R16G16B16 and 64-bit vertex buffer formats on RADV
  • Initial GFX11/RDNA3 support on RADV
  • Various ray tracing optimizations on RADV
  • ExtendedDynamicState2PatchControlPoints on RADV (VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state2 feature)
  • Radeon Raytracing Analyzer integration (using RADV_RRA_* environment variables)
  • OpenGL 4.5 on freedreno/a6xx (up from 3.3)
  • VK_EXT_mesh_shader on ANV


  • RADV = AMD Vulkan Driver
  • ANV = Intel Vulkan Driver
  • Panfrost = Arm Mali Driver
  • V3DV = Raspberry Pi 4 Driver
  • Lavapipe = A CPU-based Software Vulkan driver 

Hopefully, later this month, I’ll be looking to buy one of the new AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX so I can finally see what Mesa is like myself to use on desktop.
