NVIDIA 1.0-8XXX Series Preview

Filed under
Software

By now, you would almost need to be living underneath a rock to not have heard about the upcoming NVIDIA Rel80 GeForce display drivers. Although a majority of this preliminary information has been Microsoft Windows centric, today we'll be sharing with you some of the features that should be on the horizon for Linux users and the 1.0-8XXX drivers, one of which feature is the long awaited SLI support.

For quite some time we've been mentioning in various articles that the NVIDIA Linux 1.0-8XXX drivers are expected to be phenomenal and include a long list of awaited features such as SLI and improved graphical support. Now that various other sources have begun reporting on the Windows Forceware Rel80 (Release 80) features, we've managed to acquire some additional Linux information in the process and will share this information with you today. Among the Windows features that are expected to make their way into the next official driver release is improved TV-out/HDTV support, vertical sync capabilities, and multi-threading support. Of course what all of you have been waiting to hear, NVIDIA SLI (Scalable Link Interface) Linux support. On top of that, there are some additional features we expect NVIDIA to further develop and bundle into future revisions of its proprietary Linux drivers.

It has become necessary to spell out what it means for your computer to be a loyal platform that obeys your decisions, which you express by telling it to run certain programs. Read more
