Samuel Pitoiset who for years now has been working on the Nouveau driver and its performance counters support to be exact, has landed improved performance metrics handling for GeForce GTX 600/700 "Kepler" graphics cards.

Sam pushed today into Mesa Git the revised Kepler/SM30 performance metrics, which expose more data than the previous implementation. Details about the new metrics can be found via that Git commit.

These performance metrics can also be monitored through the GL_AMD_performance_monitor OpenGL extension.
