Re: AMD To Release GPU Specifications Without NDA!
i'm wondering how much faster/better these currently closed drivers will get once the community gets to improve them. if nvidia sees gain from this they might be encouraged to release, too (_if_ the technology's largely the same anyway)
i'm also sure nvidia users will get advantages from this, as the nouveau driver will probably be able to profit from the knowledge gained (even if the implementation isn't perfect. i'm kinda sure most of the internals work similarly)
open source drivers are really good but it's still better to have driver support for linux than none at all! so thanks nvidia for your long-existing, good linux drivers!
