Progress On SPIR-V For The Nouveau Driver Is Moving Slow

Back in July I wrote about someone working on a SPIR-V to NV50 IR Nouveau translator so that this intermediate representation for Vulkan and OpenCL 2.1+ could then be fed into this open-source NVIDIA driver. A brief, indirect update was shared this weekend and so far it appears the work is progressing slowly.

Nouveau Patches: Kepler GDDR5 Re-Clocking, PCI-E Speed Changes & More

Last month I wrote about an experimental Nouveau code branch that offered better GDDR5 Kepler re-clocking support. For some, this branch allows Nouveau users to finally fully re-clock their GeForce GTX 600/700 series graphics cards. Those patches are now being offered up for mainline Nouveau.

NVIDIA Performance Counters Still Coming Along For Nouveau

Samuel Pitoiset for the past few years has been on what seems like a one-man mission to implement NVIDIA's hardware performance counters inside the open-source Nouveau driver. He continues making much progress and it's starting to become a reality for developers who wish to profile their apps/workloads with Nouveau under Linux.

Experimental Nouveau DRM Branch Yields Better GDDR5 Kepler Re-Clocking

If you've been reading Phoronix any length of time for open-source graphics news, you'll know the most difficult challenge facing open-source NVIDIA (Nouveau) driver developers is the re-clocking / power management situation. It's been slow and re-clocking still leaves a lot to be desired.
