Precise vBlank Timestamps For The Nouveau Driver
Phoronix: Precise vBlank Timestamps For The Nouveau Driver
One year after the Radeon and Intel drivers supported precise vblank timestamps, there's a new patch for enabling this support in the open-source NVIDIA (Nouveau) driver...
Does this mean that nouveau will finally stop tearing on video playback under a compositing window manager (gnome-shell)?
Not yet, but the problem is worked on. Hopefully this works lands in time for Linux 3.3.
