Just look at Stanislav last dmesg :
[drm] nouveau 0000:02:00.0: Detected an NV50 generation card (0x0aa280a2)
[drm] nouveau 0000:02:00.0: Attempting to load BIOS image from PRAMIN
[drm] nouveau 0000:02:00.0: 256 MiB VRAM
[drm] nouveau 0000:02:00.0: 512 MiB GART (aperture)
nouveau 0000:02:00.0: firmware: requesting nouveau/nvaa.ctxprog
nouveau 0000:02:00.0: firmware: requesting nouveau/nvaa.ctxvals

You can see its a nvaa card (0x0aa...) and that the two nvaa firmwares are
correctly loaded. So that's not the problem.
The problem is indeed the EE in xorg log :
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): Error creating GPU channel: -16
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): Error initialising acceleration.  Falling back to NoAccel
