NVIDIA 1.0-8762 Display Drivers

Filed under
Software

After being quiet for nearly two months since release their relatively nonchalant 1.0-8756 drivers, NVIDIA has come out this afternoon and released the NVIDIA 1.0-8762 Linux display drivers. Contained in this release are a few fixes and new product support. Here at Phoronix we have taken a quick look at some of the changes. While we normally would have a full article examining these newly released drivers, as well as new in-house performance numbers, NVIDIA had caught us off guard and had provided no notice until after they were released. With that said, we are also in the process of finalizing articles for posting in the coming days to correspond with some of the new hardware launches this year at Computex Taipei. ATI will also be releasing their new Linux display drivers soon.

With the Linux x86 and x86_64 drivers, NVIDIA has appended ten release highlights to their Linux drivers with the 1.0-8762 release.

Full Story.

Ozon OS "Hydrogen" Alpha Available For Testing
