    Keep in mins that most servers are usually accessed remotely via ipmi / iDrac / ILO, so getting the signal out is rarely a problem...

    llvmpipe already pushed r600 out of top 5
    and it's catching up with nvc0

    you also need monitor to get signal into. there are usb videocards and there are usb or wifi-connectable monitors

    Code:
    MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=llvmpipe
    Same works for zink:
    Code:
    MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=zink

    Phoronix: OpenGL 4.5 Now Enabled For LLVMpipe With Mesa 20.3, To Be Back-Ported For 20.2

    It landed sooner than anticipated but the LLVMpipe patches enabling OpenGL 4.5 support were merged to Mesa 20.3-devel today and are also marked for back-porting to the Mesa 20.2 series soon to be promoted to stable...
