interesting - OTOH, unreal2004 is somewhat old. How does it perform on more recent programs? and how does it perform on older hardware? the driver is used by a fermi card...

Sad that you can't be happy on that.

this is a masterpeace of programming to me. i didn't expect that they come so far anyway.

it is not that I am not happy, it is more, that this single example does not prove anything.

It feels like shooting with cannon on sparrows (German expression: Mit Kanon auf Spatzen schiessen)
a fermi card has much more power that the average card, when the game was released, and it have a much larger instruction set. this only says, that 7 year old code runs fast on a recent card - nothing more.

8O What? What does my comment shoot at? For me it feels different. I am just wondered that an open source driver appears, without having any specs from the manufracturer (in this case nvidia) - and that it runs ut2004 faster than nvidias. It's more unstable - as far as I know. And it's just for linux. Maybe nvidia runs faster on windows. However.

I don't know how nvidia thinks about this, but for me it's just a little wonder.

Maybe they'll pay these coders for optimizing their own drivers.

It's very first development but promisses a lot.

Achieved same clock speed as the binary driver by loading it, letting it raise the clocks, and then doing "kexec -f" to reload linux, not giving it a chance to lower them again.

Where are the screenshots to confirm it is the same image quality? Everything else says nothing.

Code:
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers
