Great work by Samuel Pitoiset on these instruction pipelining improvements for Maxwell on Nouveau NVC0 along with exposing OpenGL 4.3. Sadly, Samuel won't be contributing many other patches to Nouveau for now since he's now working for Valve on the open-source AMD driver stack.

Stay tuned for more Nouveau vs. NVIDIA Linux benchmarks shortly on Phoronix. If you appreciate all of our original Linux benchmarks and articles on Phoronix, please consider joining Phoronix Premium to show your support while enjoying ad-free viewing and articles like this all on a single page.
