Time taken to do the gtkperf benchmark:

Nouveau driver from two days ago: 54.94 seconds
Nouveau driver from today: 24.86 seconds
NV driver (for comparison): 40.78 seconds

So you can see the nouveau driver is now substantially quicker than it used to be, and now even quicker than the old nv driver.

Keep rocking guys!

That's very good news. Until the driver implements the same features as nv, it's an apples-to-oranges comparison, though. Might it not turn out that to implement some 3D feature, the 2D layer has to work differently?

It's a completely different approach that lets us do 3D really soon. Woot woot indeed!

Oh, really? That sounds cool. What's the new approach? Is there a link to more info somewhere?

I was looking at this yesterday. It would mean updating large chunks of drm at the same time (API changes for nouveau), which I'm guessing is not going to be popular. Any ideas when the drm guys are going to sync with linus?

Richard.
