    Phoronix: Trying Nouveau NVC0 Gallium3D With Civilization 6 On Mesa 17.1

    With Intel Kabylake graphics on Mesa working (albeit very slowly) for Aspyr Media's latest Linux game port, Civilization VI, and RadeonSI Gallium3D running too albeit at a less than desirable speed, I decided to try running the open-source NVIDIA (Nouveau) driver with this latest AAA Linux game release...

    I wouldn't expect anything else than a CPU- bound cap of 20 and 30 FPS just like RadeonSI because this game couldn't care less about GPU performance than high CPU clocks...

      I was running the Linux 4.10 kernel and had enabled NvBoost=2 mode and re-clocked the graphics card to its 0f performance state.
      Why maniüulating the driver settings and dont stay on default? This has nothing to do what "normal users" would do.

        Well first of all, "normal users" don't tend to use Nouveau but the NVIDIA binary driver. And Nouveau gaming is basically impossible without the re-clocking / boosting.

          Normal users use the binary driver, which does the re-clocking by default.

            anybody mind creating an apitrace for this game? I am quite sure this is due some multithreading stuff, but who knows

                Doesn't look like MT'ing is the cause here – It consistently segfaults in the register allocator instead.
                I tried to debug it myself during the weekend but C++ is \_(:_/ for me, so not much luck.
                I'll poke You on #nouveau about it later.

                  Distros install nouveau, USERS install the binary driver. Don't confuse yourself.
