    UPDATE (March 27th, '20) - Another New Video Released >>> The next PS3 NVidia RSX accelerated steps
    (Original Article from Nov. 14) Is the PS3 a bit closer to gaining Hardware Acceleration (via RSX) in OtherOS (Linux) with a proper driver to enable the GPU chip? We are not there, but we may be getting closer to a reality. Earlier this year (back in April) we detailed some of the progress that the busy dev RenéRebe has made with unlocking the potential of the PlayStation 3's RSX chip and now today we have been greeted with a new video and what we can expect with this project as the developer starts to undertake the challenge of further unlocking one more component of the Ps3 hardware,. The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..

      Messaged Rene to see where the PS3 work progression is going and this is his reply:-

      wenn I feel like it. Also did you test the t2 build? I got very little feedback, and actually more questions to help getting it running on Gentoo or Debian. Which is to say not very motivating.

      I haven't tested T2 build myself as i am a complete noob when it comes to Linux OS. I hope he doesn't lose all motivation for this it would be a shame.

      Yeah I don't know Linux from my ass or a hole in the ground. A through and through windows guy. Only real experience I have with Linux is setting up my DreamPI to get my Dreamcast online for multiplayer games over modern net. So I am afraid I won't know where to start to help give feedback to this.

      I hope he goes a little further and get some help from Linux testers. I haven't tried to install Linux yet on my ps3 although I'd like to try it at some point in the future.

      He just posted another live stream after 12 hours! Looks like he is back at this at full force!

      Both added to the Main News again but maybe when I will find some time, I think I will write-up an all new News Thread.

      He is interested in obtaining a PS3 Reference Tool model. However, he is hesitating because:
      1. He doesn't have that much money (the price is up there)
      2. He is not sure if OtherOS will run

      Also, apparently hundreds of people unsubscribed.

      If you have a reference tool, you might want to make him an offer.

      Also, apparently Linux upstream changes are breaking stuff. This is why the binutils version of my PS2 toolchain is stuck.
    11. Anthonyy817
      Yeah it is very unfortunate he mentioned that hundreds of people unsubscribed to him since December. It is most likely people who were only interested in PS3 HW Acceleration and not interested in his other technical videos.

      But hey, 2 live stream videos in the same day is pretty great. Hopefully he stays motivated to continue work on it.

      I unsubscribed a while ago.

      To me, it was quite underwhelming, lack of viable content, too long of delays between releases, other subjects i lacked interest in, etc. Props to him for trying tho...

      That's the cold hard truth,i feel the same.
      I salute him for his work,I wish him success ;)

      I would like a complete tutorial on how to install linux and thus be able to try new things
      Neal Cullum likes this.
    15. Roxanne
      There are already Tutorials for that and this isn't new for the PS3 to install Linux. Therefore this isn't the Goal from René to show that.

      I was curious to know one thing ... what will be the effect of hardware acceleration in general? in games for example ... I do not own a PS3 CFW, I just asked out of curiosity.:D
    19. atreyu187
      Thanks was about to post this but I figured you might since we spoke of it in Reddit. Please share anything you might find lurking around. You always seem to find new obscure stuff, wether it be Dreamcast or PS3.

      Better emulation I would think and possibly more homebrew. Alot I don't understand either lol. N64 could be a possibility
