    Phoronix: Just About 20 Lines Of Code Got Open-Source 3D Running On NVIDIA Pascal For Mesa

    Just a few hours ago I was writing about NVIDIA making public the GP100 "Pascal" GPU firmware binaries needed for as a requirement for bringing up GeForce GTX 1000 series hardware acceleration on the open-source driver stack. Now the initial support has landed in Nouveau's NVC0 Gallium3D driver within Mesa for allowing 3D support...

    Nice picture, GTX 1080 is the best beer opener ever!

      At least it does something useful.
      ## VGA ##
      AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
      Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

        If it can open beers 2x faster than a GTX 780 I buy one, any benchmark of it in PTS, Michael?

          Not easily scriptable, I guess. Moreover, it's hard to perform twice on same hardware, thus it could introduce some variation, etc.
          I don't think it can beat a 480 on perf/price, though. At least that's almost a sure win for the red camp.
          On the perf/Watt figure, though, I think they could compete reasonably well. Some benchmark figures would be interesting.

          But these days, nVidia locks everything down to the hardware. Would it work with the open source drivers (no blobs)?

          So, anyone willing to give Michael a tip for manual benchmarking? I guess he would need extra beer for this one !

            +1 for the open source beer source opener

              It depends on how the 1060 turns out. We already know it will be a bit more expensive then the 480, but if it offers enough extra HP, that would translate into comparable perf/price.
