On Low-End GPUs, Nouveau Speeds Past The NVIDIA Driver @ Phoronix

Posted on Saturday, March 19 2011 @ 22:57:43 CET by

The Nouveau open-source driver for NVIDIA GeForce 8/9/200 graphics cards is now faster than NVIDIA's own driver, according to a report by Phoronix. You can view the benchmarks over here.
"With a little work, the group of community Linux developers without any corporate backing have clean-room reverse-engineered the proprietary NVIDIA GeForce graphics driver to write a fully open-source 2D/3D driver for NVIDIA graphics cards. After years of work, this open-source driver called Nouveau is now just as fast -- or faster -- than the official NVIDIA driver when running it on low-end GeForce 8/9/200 series graphics cards."
