Given that the PS3 GPU is similar to other NVIDIA GPUs, would the NOVEAU effort for PC NVIDIA GPUs help here?

Yes, all researches about nv47 can help

But to tell the truth, for low price now, more recent graphic cards and their GPU's, for PC, offer more benefit if you manage to control them.
So there are not so many PC dev making researches for this old model.

Iron Peter & Glaurung frankly did all the needed work. We just need to focus on ZCOMP and TILE now in order to recover the last remaining 30% performance, mainly by finding a way to write data where we need in order to configure it properly.

Once we reach 100% (at least on fw<=2.01) there will be surely volunteers to adapt a high level interface similar (but not the same) as Direct X or similar (probably the same) as OpenGL.

This little lack of performance is enough to ruin any motivation...
(That and of course the fact that you need fw<=2.01 of course... Maybe for fw<=2.80 there is still hope for a little trick in order to revive RSX access but there are rumours that in fw>2.80 it has been put away for security reason -just a rumour-. So, I would advise to keep a fw<=2.01 for those really interested in competing with Game OS performance, in future. I fear that above that fw version any PC will give you more graphic power -that will be more and more true as time passes- for less investment -money and hw mod hacking investment-. So btw, a fw downgrader would still be greatly appreciated for that reason!)

Xorloser is bringing his help in order to raise the number of people able to use geohot's exploit to dump their ps3 memory content :

Good to see xorloser back in business, PDX do so little these days ;)

Of course also just as amusing seeing the sticker on the front of the machine saying "Retail" implying he probably has at least one test kit knocking about, ahem ;)

Opened up the PS3 scene to what? He still doesn't have a method even planned to run unsigned code in GameOS, and there's no way to sign code. He can decrypt games and firmware, but there's nothing that can be done with them that I can see. I'm sure poking around in the firmware will be fun, but I don't expect there's going to be a way to install altered firmware. It's not like you can run GameOS on top of OtherOS...

On another note, there should be a hypervisor dump floating around next week. What's the policy here regarding that?

He enabled us to investigate system, in order to bypass limitations enforced by Hypervisor that restrict us the access to use the full hardware.

Now we can mess around with ps3, i don´t say he hacked ps3 i say he opened the scene´s door.

As always, posting copyrighted material (like a firmware dump) is not allowed. You are allowed to discuss legal methods of obtaining it (such as dumping it yourself) and information gained through the study of it.

Thanks. Looks like the hypervisor wiki will get updated anyway.

Geohot, and other people all literally said the GPU has been unlocked the entire time in all firmwares, it just needed a driver. This is for the guy why tried to patronize my post. If you don't like it go bite at their ankles, not mine.

Also dumps and dump tools have been published, and a SPU can be used for decryption of vendor content.

A little while ago you guys mentioned you were working on a new look for ace utilities because of the new look in windows vista, any news on that? Perhaps a screenshot?
