Moments ago NVIDIA had released the 1.0-9746 display driver for Linux users. New in this display driver is simply support for the GeForce 8800GTS and 8800GTX. These cards were previously only supported by the 1.0-9742 Beta display driver available at nZone. A 1.0-9746 NVIDIA display driver is also available for Solaris and FreeBSD, which also have the GeForce 8800 series support. The NVIDIA 1.0-9846 display driver is available for x86 and x86_64. You may also be interested in the Phoronix NVIDIA AYiR 2006 article or our 8800GTS / 8800GTX Linux Preview. If you've tried out these new 1.0-9746 display drivers, be sure to share your thoughts on the Phoronix Forums.
