    Phoronix: Several Older NVIDIA Tegra Powered Tablets To Be Supported By Linux 5.17

    For those that happen to have older ASUS Transformer tablets powered by a NVIDIA Tegra SoC, the Linux 5.17 kernel cycle early next year is enabling a number of them to work off the mainline kernel...

    Invaluable contribution to the kernel. It's been 10 years since my tegra tabled died.

      You can't get a tablet with a decent SoC anymore, it would seem. They're all powered by MediaTek or, more recently, Unisoc

        Are these SoC's GPUs targeted by Redhat's Nouveau OpenCL work?

          I should see if the Ouya is supported as it uses the same SoC. I've got two other Tegra3 tablets floating around as well.

            No, they're not covered by Nouveau. The Tegra SoC driver has always been open source, no need for support from Nouveau anyway.

            But it seems OpenCL is not supported: https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/...-support/40409

              What makes the GPU hardware embedded in a Tegra different from a Geforce? I thought some of them were based on Maxwell? (similar to Geforce 7xx, 8xx, and 9xx)

                It's sad that there is no standard like UEFI for ARM devices.
                Instead, every device has its own particular boot method, and most of the time only the manufacturer's kernel works on it.
