    And to add to pharma's well articulated response, I'll also say I'm using current drivers on my Optimus-enabled Gigabyte laptop with the Intel 630 iGPU + 1070MaxQ

    To add aswell, the GTX600 series got a driver update as late as 31st of january this year (2022). Quite amazing considering that gpu line debuted early 2012, thats about a 10 year driver support, officially supported for MS's new Windows 11.
    And even after driver updates stop, it doesnt make the GPU irrelevant by any means, you can still play all your old games ofcourse, even newer ones (with performance impact ofcourse), just without NV's (and AMD's) optimizations. Then again, say a GTX680 wont be running CP2077 all that well (or any +2022 next gen game) so driver updates become quite meaningless anyway.

    Just the kernel module, totally crippled without both the firmware and user space half blob. Also not even remotely any plans to to send to into kernel upstream, and the usual CLA pill.

    That's just the bare minimum which was inevitable to get a ahead of serious concerns that the kernel blob might pose a severe security risk after the source had already been leaked.

    It's still *that* type of code which won't have any chance to make it into the official kernel sources.

    And did it really open up much?... Actually no. The former kernel driver internal magic which defines which features a GPU effectively even exposes has simply been offloaded to a GPU side co-processor since Turing, so the good old criple-by-firmware-strategy still applies.
