No estimates at the moment. I'm not sure whether anybody is working on
this at all at the moment.

I'm sorry but that question doesn't make any sense. NVIDIA is a vendor for
graphics card. DRI is a kernel software interface (in Linux, FreeBSD or
both, not sure) which allows hardware acceleration which works AFAIK
with NVIDIA cards and drivers, too.
