Nouveau Fermi Acceleration Merged Into X Driver
Phoronix: Nouveau Fermi Acceleration Merged Into X Driver
The Nouveau (and PathScale) developers working on reverse-engineering the NVIDIA Linux binary driver in turn to write a free software driver with 2D/3D acceleration for all of NVIDIA's graphics processors, have another accomplishment under their belt today. They've now merged the NVC0 (a.k.a. "Fermi") acceleration support into the xf86-video-nouveau DDX driver...
Xv is also accelerated if you read more than the changelog for the first nvc0 commit..
