This almost feels like an April Fools’ Day joke that was six months late. Nouveau – that terrible open-source graphics driver for NVIDIA? That will soon get replaced with the new open-source NVK driver. This was written by Jason Ekstrand from Collabora, as well as Koral Herbst and Dave Airlie at Red Hat. Getting the driver to work, according to the blog post, was through the Turing class of GPUs, which contained a new unified firmware blob; NVIDIA’s open-source kernel driver; and obtaining the official headers for the 3D and compute hardware.
