Question Do Steam games work with the Nouveau drivers?


Hi.

Do Steam games work with the Nouveau drivers? Which games are playable?

My Nvidia graphics card is near 4 years old so I presume it's more Nouveau friendly than a brand new graphics card.

it should work but my experience is that the nouveau drivers render things more slowly than the nvidia drivers.

check out glxgears to compare.

Hi schneidz.

On my laptop with nvidia optimus, running nouveau drivers - I got 60fps on glxgears.
