      Weird all this open source stuff from nVidia after The Lapsus$ Hacking Group released their code... coincidence???

        Considering none of this is the code they asked to be open source, yes, coincidence.

          Is it possible to reverse engineer the leaked code by reverse engineering?

            Wouldn't help. Nouveau sucks because it can't raise the cards' clock speed above "rock fucking bottom." Only firmware can do that, and the cards only accept firmware signed by nvidia. Nvidia ain't publishing firmware for nouveau that supports that capability.

                Aside from the firmware issues mentioned by Developer12, you would get a driver no legitimate distribution can ship because it's a copyright infringement. You need clean room reverse engineering for proper open source implementations, there's no way around that. That's also why Lapsu$' leak doesn't really matter. At most you can get some counterfeit patched version which will most likely be closed source (that scene tend to prefer keeping things closed for bragging rights or something) and may or may not contain back doors. The competition can't use it because the copyright infringement would be blatant and they risk getting sued and losing and the same applies to Mesa trying to improve Nouveau by studying or modifying that code.

                    It doesn't affect any desktop hardware, does it?

                    INB4 you should be using Windows
