    Phoronix: GTX 750 Maxwell Acceleration Starts Working On Nouveau With Linux 4.1

    While the Nouveau developers remain blocked by NVIDIA on bringing up accelerated support for the GeForce GTX 900 series, with the forthcoming Linux 4.1 kernel there is initial GeForce GTX 750 "Maxwell" accelerated support out-of-the-box...

    FWIW the reason that you only get GL 3.0 is because the nouveau ddx's glamor usage is somehow messed up, and GLX_ARB_create_context_profile doesn't get exposed, so you can't create a core context. No idea why. I believe you can force EXA and then somehow tell it to do all the EXA in software, or maybe even setting AccelMode to None will work.

    I have patches for enabling EXA with maxwell, but they're incomplete, and I keep forgetting to finish them up.

    Note that this isn't a shortcoming of GLAMOR but rather of how the nouveau ddx integrates it.

            Hey guys, i have GeForce GTX 750. Bought it couple months ago, and experience in linux was just horror. Window dragging in Gnome 3, tearing issues, etc...

            Why is the GTX 750 so specific?

            Since i read here: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...-Linux-4.1-Try
            „I don't recall this problem recently with Nouveau on non-GTX750 setups...“

            And do you have any tips for improving performance?

              Switch to the proprietary driver.
