For those conservative Linux desktop users not wishing to immediately upgrade to the exciting NVIDIA 313 Linux driver, NVIDIA on Monday morning released the 310.32 official driver. While not as exciting as the new 313 series, this 310.32 update carries many of the same changes.

The items worth mentioning for today's NVIDIA 310.32 driver release include:

- Support for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX and Tesla K20Xm graphics processors.

- Support for toggling PCI Express 3.0 support via the NVreg_EnablePCIeGen3 kernel parameter. PCI-E 3.0 "Gen3" support is still known to be problematic for certain software/hardware combinations.

- Initial support for X.Org Server 1.14, the xorg-server update to be released in the next month or two.

- Performance improvements when dealing with OpenGL frame-buffer object (FBO) binds with Xinerama enabled and separately for some versions of HyperMesh with Quadro GPUs.

- Improved HDMI 3D support.

- Various bug-fixes, including a shader compiler crash fix and the usual VDPAU fixes.
