    It seems perfectly reasonable to recommend drivers that work better with your software, but the fact that the bugs and performance issues were identified but never reported seems... very odd.

    Actually, not a lot of changes to nouveau of late.

    git log mesa-10.3.. src/gallium/drivers/nouveau/

    shows just a handful of changes that weren't also backported to 10.3 stable --...

    Except... they didn't use a Kepler. They used a Maxwell chip. According to the lspci results, it's 10de:1341, which pci ids lists as a GM108 (http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/10de/1341). This is not at...

    With Kepler reclocking, available experimentally since 3.16, your own testing showed that nouveau hits about 80% of the blob's performance in TF2 and... whatever other game you tested was. The higher...

    Report bugs that you have via bugs.freedesktop.org ... otherwise they'll never get fixed. IIRC 3.16 got a bit of an upgrade in the types of fans it was able to control. But perhaps the thresholds in...

    Is this a surprise to anyone?

    Is it actually interesting to anyone to see comparisons of nouveau to the blob driver when they're running at vastly different clock speeds? Isn't it kind of a given that way lower clocks -> way...
  7. The 6000 and 7000 series cards should reclock...

    The 6000 and 7000 series cards should reclock just fine today (with a few occasional exceptions). 8000 series and 9000 series cards will take some additional effort (G8x, G9x, G200) -- the model...

    Of course by that logic, no one's making any such CPU's either. (At least not Intel/AMD.) They all require microcode, which is very much closed.



    The full source is included in the kernel (look...

    Might want to check it with a clean mesa build rather than with the gallium-nine patches on top (which also modify drivers). I haven't heard of any such issues until now.
  10. Well, the only place where nvc0 is behind intel...

    Well, the only place where nvc0 is behind intel is its lack of ARB_shader_atomic_counters (which are actually missing in gallium as a whole). This should not be difficult to implement, but is also...

    It's blocked and one has to patch. However the reason it's disabled is that it's generally not worth trying. The memory reclocking logic that was there for nv50-era cards got essentially dropped in...

    Correction: For nv40 (all nv4x), nvaa (nvaa/nvac), and nve0 (nve0+), it'll actually be enabled by default. Hence the advice to use with caution :)

    For NV40, it should generally work, with rare...

    What instructions? It's just a question of adding the piping between the stages, which will largely mirror what GLSL has. The TGSI modifications shouldn't be too difficult... probably just adding a...

    Actually the nvc0 driver already has a bunch of the necessary support for tessellation (and there's no way it'll happen on nv50 -- while it could be emulated, it would be very slow, thus useless)....

    I see you're taking the approach often taken in articles on this site of bringing up unverifiable/generic problems without providing further details. That's by far the best way to not get them fixed,...

    The theory being that I care about destructive criticism from people who don't contribute to nouveau? Interesting. I don't :) And I feel very welcome on the nouveau project, and would highly...

    Not sure when a claim was made that I was. I'm targeting learning about GPU's and 3D graphics, and improving driver quality. (And no, "reclocking" doesn't fit under quality.)



    I don't think...

    Reclocking is hard to work on, and requires tons of hardware and time for tracing, testing, etc. This is not available to everyone. But it's being worked on, although progress is slow. Why not...

    Yeah, it all works fine for me too on a 9500 GT (G96) and a Quadro FX 370LP (G98). There are some known issues with GT21x cards that hang on startup (and which never really worked to begin with, so...

    See https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63165. You may have better luck with blob pgraph fw.
