When will the next NVIDIA Linux display driver be out? Originally we believed that there would be something of significance in the early February time frame to accompany the 100.XX series, but that has now passed. With the recently released GeForce 8800GTS 320MB and other GeForce 8 parts preparing to leave Santa Clara, it does raise the possibility for the next Linux display driver to come out around CeBit time. CeBit will be taking place this year from March 15 to the 21st. NVIDIA has provided same-day Linux support for the GeForce 7800GTX and 8800GTX along with other recent GPUs, but if they expect to keep it up we will see a new driver in the near future. While not certain, we hope this next driver will be the introduction of the new NVIDIA driver generation and not another maintenance release with added product support.

Getting back on track with today's topic, we are offering what will be our final comparison for the NVIDIA 1.0-9XXX series. The games we are using for benchmarking are Enemy Territory, Unreal Tournament 2004, Doom 3, and Quake 4. The NVIDIA GPU used for testing was the GeForce 6150, which is a very common integrated graphics processor for Linux HTPC users so we found it worthwhile to take another look at its performance abilities.
