NVIDIA Introduces 280 Linux Driver Series

Filed under
Hardware
Software

Now that NVIDIA has officially released the 275.xx Linux driver, they're onto the 280.xx driver series. Just in time for the US holiday weekend they have released the NVIDIA 280.04 binary Linux driver beta.

While the 280.04 beta driver marks the introduction of a new series, the official change-log is shockingly small. All that's officially mentioned for being fixed-up in the 280.04 beta is incremental bug-fixes and preliminary support for the X.Org X Server ABI 11. This is the video ABI that's being used by X.Org Server 1.11 RC1.
