    Probably, because as Mesa development showed in recent years, opensource developers can come up with software providing very competitive performance.
    So, yes, maybe Mesa would be able provide as good as or even better speeds than the NVIDIA blob itself if those firmware bits were released.

    FYI, see as a recent example.
    Marek Olšák is at it again, this time optimizing generic parts of the Mesa stack, benefitting all drivers.

      It wouldn't be, but knowing Nvidia they will drag this out until AMD get close, they will then release Turing refresh (name it like Ampere or Pikachu) using 7nm that will demolish AMD again.

      If AMD is far behind I can see Nvidia doing the same pricing logic again as well.

      If RTX 3080Ti is 30% faster than 2080Ti then Nvidia will probably sell it for $1499 ~(1200*1.3) and so on.
