Nouveau Might Add A "NvReclock" Option

A patch has been proposed to introduce a NvReclock option for more easily enabling NVIDIA GPU core/memory re-clocking support by this open-source, reverse-engineered driver where supported. Initially this NvReclock option is only going to be enabled by default for select GPUs.

Nouveau Becomes Friendly Towards Non-Root X Server

A few days ago I wrote about the Intel and Radeon drivers supporting the X.Org Server without root rights due to the DDX drivers adding support for server-managed FDs. That support has now been extended to cover the Nouveau driver too.

NVIDIA Publishes A New Open-Source Nouveau Driver Patch

A short time ago NVIDIA made the bold move of working on open-source Tegra K1 graphics support for Nouveau, the reverse-engineered open-source NVIDIA driver they previously took a neutral approach to handling. The Tegra K1 Nouveau support is still being worked on but there's a fresh patch out of NVIDIA for the open-source developers.

Libpciaccess Ported To Windows To Help Nouveau

The generic PCI access library (libpciaccess) used on Linux and other POSIX platforms by the X.Org Server and other components has now been ported to Windows via Cygwin. This porting to Windows was done to help in the Nouveau open-source NVIDIA reverse-engineering process.

Nouveau 3.14 Gets New Acceleration, Still Lacking PM

The Nouveau open-source NVIDIA kernel driver changes for the Linux 3.14 kernel are now known. The Nouveau changes are exciting in having hardware acceleration support for some new GPUs but is less exciting as it's yet another kernel release without proper dynamic power management / re-clocking support.

Nouveau Gets Page Flipping Fixes, Sync To VBlank

Last week was the main set of Nouveau DRM driver changes for the Linux 3.13, which included new power management and re-clocking code for this open-source NVIDIA driver. Prior to David Airlie sending in the DRM pull request a few hours ago, a few more Nouveau changes were merged.

Nouveau Receives Greater Re-Clocking Support

The Linux 3.13 kernel has major power management and re-clocking changes -- including automatic fan management by default and initial support for Fermi/Kepler GPU core re-clocking -- and now separate from that work are some more re-clocking improvements. This time around the re-clocking work is for some older NVIDIA integrated/mobile graphics cores.

Reading The Clocks With Nouveau's New PM/Re-Clocking

If you have checked out drm-next since yesterday when Nouveau received new re-clocking and power management code that's still experimental but brings initial support for Fermi and Kepler GPUs, you may have noticed the disappearance of the performance_level sysfs.
