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 Linux kernel KMS driver (nouveau), Gallium3D drivers in Mesa, and the Xorg DDX (xf86-video-nouveau).

<li>Performance level selection (also known as "reclocking") is not supported yet. Expect low 3D performance on laptops using a Tesla GPU and all Fermi/Kepler cards. (see [[CodeNames]])</li>
