    Phoronix: Open-Source NVIDIA/Nouveau Changes Submitted For Linux 5.8

    There hasn't been too much to report on the open-source NVIDIA "Nouveau" kernel driver in some time since the enabling of Turing and no apparent progress on re-clocking to allow the graphics cards to hit their rated clock frequencies (the longstanding, number one limitation for this open-source driver), but some changes were sent in today for the upcoming Linux 5.8 kernel merge window...

        Where entry-level cards are concerned, most shops in my country only sell Nvidia. And I have no need for a mid-range AMD card when its sole purpose is to draw the desktop.

        As long as the kernel + mesa is compatible with the full range of latest entry-level Nvidia cards, it's good enough for me. The stock clock speeds are more than sufficient for such tasks.

          So, first it was "huge announcement" during GTC 2020, then that event got pushed back, and made an e-event, when did they push back the announcement from GTC?

          Its like they acknowledged everything during the event, and then ended with: "oh, the Linux news? keep waiting"
          What ball busters!
