I'm trying to parse this article on Phoronix:

Does this apply to Genesi machines at all?

Hi, the Freescale i.mx515, which is used in Genesi´s current generation of products, uses graphics hardware from AMD (Qualcomm later bought the technology) and not ARM Ltd´s Mali technology. Genesi has spent considerable resources to develop a graphics driver that is optimized for its current generation of products. This driver is not likely to be replaced with anything else.

Freescale´s i.mx6 processors, which have been mentioned in relation to future projects, use graphics technology from a company called Vivante, by the way.

Ok, thanks for the info! I'm pretty unknowledgable when it comes to graphics drivers in Linux, especially for ARM. Anyway, yes, the drivers developed by Genesi are sure to be the best for the devices. :)
