    In addition to all of the contributions Valve graphics engineers have been making to the open-source Radeon "RADV" Vulkan driver, they have also begun investing in improvements to the open-source Mesa NVIDIA "NVK" Vulkan driver too.

          What? Sure they are. A750 now performs at the same level as rx7600 and 4070 in many tasks, while being cheaper, though at a bit higher power draw.

                Just tested. Compiled mesa-git + kernel with the mentioned patches and it works without problems.
                See:

                Edit: Oh well. Had after around 3 minutes in desktop a hard freeze, after reboot it did not show anything on the screen anymore. Just black.

                  Makes me wonder if we're going to see a Tegra-based Steam Deck in the future.
