    Phoronix: NVIDIA 100.14.19 Display Driver

    After a very slow summer, NVIDIA has finally rolled out an updated Linux proprietary display driver. The release highlights are quite extensive. However, as NVIDIA did not have the courtesy to allow for testing this driver in advance and right now we are out covering Intel's IDF, we do not have benchmarks to share. However, as time permits over the next day or two we hope to publish some new Linux NVIDIA GeForce 8800 benchmarks.

    X Server 1.4 works without -ignoreABI now with it. Now I would like to see updates for the legacy drivers.

      Its good now that this new driver works with the new Xorg 7.3, but composite's not working quite right as compiz fusion does not work properly on Xorg 7.3. Apparently not an nVidia driver bug but an Xorg one.

        This is the best nvidia linux driver I have ever used.

            I haven't had any problems so far, the previous driver didn't knew the name of my card (7600GT) but now all seems ok. Good work Nvidia.

              I'll see how this driver fairs on my system, since I've got an old FX card... Hopefully all will be OK.
