    This "Another Look At The Open-Source Nouveau With Fermi" is pointless because nouveau at no level manages new cards.

    Just to set things straight (again...): PM improvements in nouveau are expected for NV50-cards up to but probably not including G105M. Anything newer requires more work. Don't expect Fermi PM anywhere in the near future with nouveau.

    Phoronix: Another Look At The Open-Source Nouveau With Fermi

    Earlier this week was benchmarks of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 "Fermi" with the open-source Nouveau driver. The reverse-engineered Nouveau support for the GeForce 400/500 series is incomplete and requires users to generate their own custom firmware before there is even 2D/3D/video acceleration support. The initial tests on the GeForce GTX 460 also yielded a disturbingly large performance difference between the open-source and closed-source NVIDIA drivers, where as with previous generations of NVIDIA GPUs the performance difference is more manageable. Here is another look at Nouveau for Fermi, but this time from a GeForce GTX 485M.
