+ - Bell Labs System Enables 3D Rendering on DisplayLi->

Submitted by
billakay
billakay writes ""A recently open-sourced experimental Linux infrastructure created by Bell Labs researchers allows 3D rendering to be performed on a GPU and displayed on other devices, including DisplayLink dongles. The system accomplishes this by essentially creating "Virtual CRTCs", or virtual display output controllers, and allowing arbitrary devices to appear as extra ports on a graphics card.

Story can be found at Phoronix. The code and instructions to get the system running can be found here at GitHub.""

+ - Experimental Code Published For Virtual CRTCs->

Submitted by billakay
billakay (1607221) writes "Some experimental code for Linux has been published that allows your graphics card to do 3D rendering, then have the pixels pushed off to an arbitrary device.

Initially implemented drivers enable 3D rendered applications and games on DisplayLink devices, as well as piping the pixels to userspace via Video4Linux2.

Full disclosure: I am one of the developers that contributed to this."
