|The latests version (7.8.1) of Mesa3D library is now available in AROS nightly builds.|
This version takes advantage of the Gallium3D driver system which is now integrated into AROS. The choice is between nVidia hardware accelerated driver or software/CPU fall-back driver. The correct driver for your configuration is selected automatically at the 3D subsystem start based on your hardware configuration.
NOTE: To use the nVidia hardware accelerated driver, you need to have GeForce 5XXX, 6XXX or 7XXX card and start AROS in VESA mode.
NOTE: Where possible, nVidia AGP cards will take advantage of AGP transfer speeds, thanks to recent integration of AGP driver into AROS.
