    Default pick a discrete card...

    The last I looked, the only discrete card options were Nvidia. I suspect ATI support would be comparatively more expensive.

    I am greatful that AMD seems to be improving their Linux performance. That is the first benchmark I have seen where catalyst performs better on Linux. And I look at a lot of benchmarks.

    However, that Catalyst driver is beta. I strongly suspect that if we look over the various benchmarks over the past year, we will see a consistent deficit of catalyst drivers vs. Nvidia offerings on Linux and their windows counterparts.

    I thought there were earlier articles about Tegra nouveau drivers
    I would expect that nouveau will be an option eventually. You might need to wait until some nouveau dev gets their hands one one of these boards.

    I'd assume some patches needed here and there in userspace too, since currently userspace figures out what to do based on pci-id's. And now we have separate gpu (nouveau) vs display (tegradrm) drivers. Etc. I'm sure *someone* has nouveau working on the thing already, but not don't think everything needed is upstream and released yet, etc.
