I wonder if this'll be the scrape where AMD overtakes nVidia in the GPU vendor results.

I thought it had already! But you're right. It's neck and neck, but Nvidia still have a slight edge!

GPU stats showing Nvidia slightly ahead (50% vs 47%)
Time to join the dual-monitor club again, after 5 years away from it. So good to be back.

Now to save up for that third monitor…

If I use Nvidia open kernel modules, should I choose "open source drivers" or "propriearty drivers"?

Does this "open/proprietary driver" point still make sense?

Probably not, given that 99% of people using Nvidia will be proprietary and 99% of people using AMD or Intel will be using mesa (open source). It was more relevant when AMD were still pushing the Catalyst/Radeon driver. And Nouveau driver hasn't really matured all that much in the last few years to my knowledge - not sure it's worth talking about it at this point. If Nvidia are going to do anything around open source, it'll be their new kernel modules, I expect.

It's close :) But might take another month.

I think nouveau is actually the most relevant for this question. I.e. since they can start implementing important features like reclocking based on the new Nvidia's open kernel module, it will become feasible to use nouveau + nvk (Mesa Vulkan for Nvidia) as a functional open stack at some point.

For AMD this question is indeed not interesting.

The kernel modules are curently usable for some cases like gaming but lack some features like power management and are a bit buggy. I was using open kernel modules but switched back because of bugs.

I don't think nouveau will be relevant for GT800 and above for a year but it indeed will be in the future.

Same hardware and setup for years now...just my Desk and the VR device changing...well and my OS a little bit ago.
