Submission + - Nouveau: A First Look (OSS 3D NVIDIA Drivers)

An anonymous reader writes: Phoronix has posted an article that offers a brief overview of the FreeDesktop Nouveau project. This project is working on producing an open-source 3D NVIDIA display driver that is unified to support all their GPUs — from the Riva to the GeForce 8800GTX. Developers are also working on adding Scalable Link Interface support. They had tried these drivers from git and tested it on three NVIDIA GeForce 6/7 GPUs. Also covered in this article is REnouveau for clean-room reverse engineering and their modified version of NVClock.
