Trying Out The Nouveau Driver Rewrite
Phoronix: Trying Out The Nouveau Driver Rewrite
While Linux 3.7-rc1 hasn't even been released yet as the merge window is still open, the Linux 3.7 kernel is exciting and users of the open-source Nouveau driver will be greeted by the Nouveau DRM driver rewrite / code restructuring. Due to the invasive Nouveau work, some early Nouveau tests under the Linux 3.7 kernel were carried out. The 3.7 results were then compared to the earlier Linux 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6 kernel releases.
Anyone know if these bugs have been fixed with new drivers?:
I've been trying to compile the new "mesa" and nouveau 3D drivers. In some guides I've seen is used the next option: "--disable-vdpau"
Currently, what about vdpau and nouveau? Still can not use vdpau?

wasn't this rewrite to lower cpu/memory usage ?
if so then running tests on a heavily gpu limited system should bear only minimal performance improvements (mostly due to better timing)
Do you have a reference for that?
