    Phoronix: NVIDIA's Releasing An Overclocking Linux Driver Tomorrow

    At long last NVIDIA is expected to release a new binary Linux driver tomorrow that will support GPU overclocking for the GeForce 400 series hardware and newer (Fermi, Kepler, and Maxwell, inclusive). This first NVIDIA 337 series Linux driver release will also bring other new features...

      Will it support 3.14 kernel??

      Will it support 3.14 kernel??
      After upgrading to the last kernel on my opensuse, I was unable to compile the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-334.21 driver

        I wonder if this is going to be implemented to all the platforms under the "Unix drivers" rubric. Should be known by tomorrow.

          this driver sounds promising even to windows...
          "Nvidia revealed in a talk at GTC that the DX11 API update that was showcased on the previous GTC session will arrive in the form of a Geforce Driver, more specifically the Geforce 337.xx Driver. It will be released sometime in April and will result in very significant performance gains inside the DX11 API itself. The new driver takes a well known approach to solve CPU overhead without moving to a new API (DX12 for example). The approach is called ‘Tiled Resources’ and a weak variant of the same is also used in Mantle API. This will also grant Developers more control at the Assembly level."

            Works fine on 3.14 on Arch.

                  Hopefully we can now use AA together with FXAA, for Flightgear etc. like on Windows.

                    What's there to play? Metro Last Light?

                    NVIDIA should help nouveau more, not implement features required by 1% of Linux users (i.e. 0.01% computers users in general).

                      If SteamOS takes off, the current "99%" of Linux users you speak of might just become 1%.

                        My needing for overclock was to have smooth effects and web browsing scrolling even in the lowset powermizer settings due to my card being clocked ridicously low there, so it is good to hear

                          Underclocking for less resource usage, overclocking for more performance out of your hardware. Really awful material indeed.

                          But yeah I knew it was coming. I had an overclocked 9800GT for years, and got a new GTX 750Ti last month so it was time for this to appear

                            Clock-to-clock benchmarks compared to Nouveau, please, now that it's possible, just for fun.

                              Not really. I'm never going to risk voiding my warranty just to get a few extra frames, and I think that will be true for most people at any point in time. It's like with smartphone hacking, most people will always use it vanilla (and unlocking the phone has much larger benefits than a few frames to begin with).
