    Just look under the "supported devices" section for the recently released 173 driver.

    I've read that NVIDIA has released some documentation that would be useful to Nouveau driver developers. Are they planning to follow in the same path as AMD with supporting open drivers or what?

    They want to make sure that the nouveau driver works good enough with any NVIDIA GPU so that you get a working desktop to later install the proper driver. That's not the case right now. With some cards you can have major trouble even booting a Live System to start the installer for a distro unless you use "nomodeset" as kernel parameter. Their goal is improving the out of the box experience not to have an alternative driver for graphic intensive tasks like gaming. I don't blame them, it's a reasonable thing to do.

    Ah thank you that makes sense to me. Guess I will be leaning towards AMD since radeon's hardware support seems to be improving quickly. Nice to have options though.
