I'm sorry but the first thing that comes to mind when I read "Thunderbolt" is this.

Nvidia is finally adding Integer Scaling to their video drivers in addition to a Low Latency mode: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/gamescom-2019-game-ready-driver/

So now their drivers are pretty feature comparible with their competitors. The annoying thing is that they decided to make it a surprise announcement and were staying silent regarding these feature requests...

Edit: Integer Scaling isn't available for Pascal and older generation video cards... wtf!?

But does the low-latency mode work with OpenGL?

Anyway, NVIDIA recently removed 3D Vision from its newer drivers, so I'm less inclined to get them...

because integer scaling requires the power of TENSOR CORES or something.

I don't get why it needs to be limited to Turing and newer series cards. It's not like it's increasing the Internal Rendering Resolution (that's what Dynamic Super Resolution/Super Sample Anti-Aliasing does). Most emulators support Integer upscaling in software with no discernible performance impact!

gotta push the latest hardware.

even tho said hardware would be overkill for integer scaling.

Dun get why they got rid of it in the first place.

It's not the first time nVidia ends the party for us users of their older hardware.

Remember when Fermi GPUs were in the roadmap for Vulkan support (the hardware itself supports it just fine, from what I've heard), then suddenly "MAXWELL+ ONLY, SORRY". And then there is the whole trainwreck of Sega 32X Optimus under non-Windows platforms.

Their hardware support lifecycle is still amazing, with regards of driver releases. But once your hardware is on the edge of getting moved to the legacy branch in the next 3 years, you know which company whose hardware NOT buy on your next refresh cycle. Oh wait, this means noone should buy GPUs at all :/

At least Fermi did eventually get DirectX 12 support, even if it was only the software components of DirectX 12. I think it took 3 or so years after DirectX 12 support was added to Windows 10 for them to finally fulfil that promise.

...which means exactly nothing for those of us either Not Running Windows®, or actually wanting multiplatform solutions (of which Vulkan is one that will actually work everywhere but Macs). I guess the only hope for us Linux users to get Vulkan on our Fermi GPUs are when the Nouveau folks actually implement it (but then, they're focused on recent hardware too - they get no help from nVidia so they have to gather their reduced manpower around the most attractive target, which means that anyone using 5yo tech gets nothing...)

Anyway, while engineers make the silicon and write the drivers, the marketing (and sometimes Legal) guys are the ones that greenlight actual releases. If not adding a single, niche feature helps them selling another thousand new GPUs even when the engineering costs are already covered for supporting it on previous-gen hardware, they'll keep doing it so.

IBM is opensourcing the POWER ISA:
https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/08/20/197244/ibm-is-moving-openpower-foundation-to-the-linux-foundation

IBM should have done this at least two decades ago, when PPC was still relevant!
But hey, some competition for RISC-V is always welcome. "ARM everywhere" is not the direction I want to take, despite the need to dethrone x86 for good.

Is there any chance this can be slipped back into the installer like when they senselessly decided to restrict nView to Quadro cards only?

According to the very last posts here there's a tool at https://helixmod.blogspot.com/2017/05/3d-fix-manager.html that can provide support for 3D Vision. Haven't tested it yet.

Unfortunately people still believe that repair is useless, and when it breaks you should go and buy a new device because it's convenient to empty your bank account every time your $1000 cellphone needs a new battery, or when your washing machine starts leaking water.

Also, people that comes from failed nations (communism, etc) tends to associate "repair" with trauma (repair the same things one zillion times, etc.), which is also obviously wrong.

At the other end of the spectrum, we have this:
https://mobile.slashdot.org/story/19/08/27/1412215/the-fairphone-3-packs-in-features-while-keeping-its-green-credentials
Too bad being "green" and "politically safe" involves yesterday specs with prices of tomorrow :/
