Submission + - Bell Labs Experimental System Enables 3D Rendering (

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.

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

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
