<h1>Nouveau: Accelerated Open Source driver for nVidia cards</h1>

<p>
The <b>nouveau</b> project aims to build high-quality, free/libre software drivers for [[nVidia cards|CodeNames]].  “Nouveau” [<i>nuvo</i>] is the French word for “new”. Nouveau is composed of a kernel KMS driver (nouveau), Gallium3D drivers in Mesa, and the Xorg DDX (xf86-video-nouveau).
</p>

<h2>Current Status</h2>

<ul>
<li>2D/3D acceleration supported on all cards; see [[FeatureMatrix]] for details</li>
<li>Reclocking support largely missing, expect low 3D performance on Tesla laptops and all Fermi/Kepler cards (see [[CodeNames]])</li>
</ul>

<h2>News</h2>

<ul>
<li>July, 2013: H.264/MPEG2 decoding for cards with [[VP2]] merged into 3.11 and Mesa-9.2</li>
<li>July, 2013: NVF0 (GTX Titan) support merged into 3.11 and DDX</li>
<li>May, 2013: Performance counters GSoC ([[blog|https://hakzsam.wordpress.com/2013/05/27/google-summer-of-code-2013-proposal-for-x-org-foundation/]])</li>
<li>Dec, 2012: Thermal management for [[NV43+|CodeNames]] (see [[this|http://cgit.freedesktop.org/nouveau/linux-2.6/tree/Documentation/thermal/nouveau_thermal]] and [[this|http://www.spinics.net/lists/dri-devel/msg31902.html]])</li>
