    Phoronix: NVIDIA Contributes Some New Tegra/Nouveau Patches

    It's not any re-clocking code or magical improvements for Nouveau's Pascal support, but on the Tegra side a NVIDIA developer has volleyed some new open-source patches...

      It serves as a decent backup driver until you install their closed one.

          The contribution here is for Tegra which is embedded hardware, in embedded there is a bit more interest in opensource (I mean $$$) than on desktop. Not much, just a bit.

              no one did but IMO it is anyway as its useless an ya wonder why many still use the closed Nvidia Driver .

                On my machine it crashes with the nvidia driver and works just fine (don't really need to game on a 2010 mac) with nouveau.

                  NVIDIA when they keep not releasing power management firmware for newer GPUs.

                    i think that is because there are various legacy linux setups that might be too much of a hassle to provide support for.

                    not everybody needs fast 3d graphics, but they surely could use some decent 2d acceleration and good multi-monitor support. that's one of the reasons i'm not really considering an nvidia card to drive my 4k display at work, until nouveau gets performant enough.
