--- Comment #5 from Max Staudt <mstaudt@xxxxxxxx> ---
The DDX also gained support for newer products just last month:

https://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-announce/2017-April/002796.html

Though that is based on similarities with the previous generation.

Looking at the code, not much code specific to generations
Kepler/Maxwell/Pascal seems to be present - they seem to build on top of the
Fermi code, where applicable. So I suspect that either the GPU architecture
changes, and less of this code will actually be used - or the hardware stays
similar, and the continue continues to work.


For an overview of the NVIDIA GPU generations, see:
