NVIDIA AYiR 2006 - Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| With ATI/AMD continuing to improve the quality of their display
| drivers in the monthly releases, next year may very well be the
| hardest year yet for NVIDIA. The community-driven Nouveau
| open-source 2D/3D NVIDIA driver project is also finally
| beginning to take shape.



...pledge at least $10 USD towards the development of the open source nouveau
driver for the nvidia card series...

| For the longest time nvidia have failed to provide specifications
| for their hardware or a working free accelerated 3d driver for
| inclusion with X.org. Thus leaving the many users of their
| videocards on popular UN*X systems such as Linux with only the
| option of using a 2d only driver or using nvidia' notorious
| proprietary driver.
| With the advent of technological improvements to the underlying
| system to allow desktop effects this leaves a great number of users
| out in the cold. A project does exists to reverse engineer a driver
| for the existing nvidia cards, however this is a hard task which
| will require many man hours to complete. Thus the aim to presentt
| he Nouveau team with this no strings attached donation of at least
| $10.000 USD to further their nobel effort in developing this driver.
