While we have been covering the NVIDIA and NVClock updates for almost the past month now when it comes to primarily the GeForce 7900 support, we have a few details to pass along today when it comes to new code merged into the NVClock SourceForge CVS public server in roughly the past week. To begin, a few init script table tokens were added for some GeForce 7 series GPUs and the performance table parsing was re-done. Other changes include adding several new GeForce 7 device IDs, basic support, and F73373S support. Additional NVClock code changes are expected to occur soon. No word yet when other features may be added. Well, with it being the start of April -- NVIDIA's Linux display drivers can be anticipated for a launch at anytime now (come on, just a little bit more waiting :), for real). NVClock CVS information is at SourceForge.
