NVIDIA 100.14.11 Display Driver

It was just two weeks ago that NVIDIA had introduced the 100.14.09 display driver, but today we have another new Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD driver out from the green binary camp. The NVIDIA 100.14.11 display driver adds support for their new GeForce 7 integrated graphics, fixes console restoration problems, and improves some other areas of their Linux (as well as FreeBSD and Solaris) driver.

The NVIDIA 100.14.09 driver had appended new GeForce 8 and Quadro product support, but in today's driver we have new GeForce 7 support. Well, the product support being added is for the GeForce 7025 and GeForce 7050PV with the nForce 630a. The NVIDIA GeForce 7000 IGP series replaces the aging GeForce 6100 and 6150 integrated graphics. NVIDIA's 7050PV offers support for PureVideo technology, integrated HDMI, and TV encoding while the lower-end GeForce 7025 does not contain these features, but both integrated graphics processors come clocked at 425MHz and offer similar specifications.

In addition to the new product support, the 100.14.11 driver fixes console restore problems for different configurations including the Quadro FX 4400 SLI, VESA console, and notebook LCD displays. The three other official changes that make up this release include improved interaction with ATI RS480/RS482 motherboards, improved support for House Sync with G-Sync II, and improved NVIDIA X driver interaction with the ACPI daemon.

This driver is only a minor update and with our testing thus far, we haven't come across any performance changes or other undocumented improvements since the 100.14.09 graphics driver. The NVIDIA 100.14.11 Solaris driver is identical in changes to the Linux version, with the exception of the X driver interaction with the ACPI daemon. You can discuss the NVIDIA display drivers for Linux and Solaris in the Phoronix Forums.
