With NVIDIA's 1.0-8756 Linux display driver having come out exactly one month ago, it should be about time for another driver release. For a while now, NVIDIA has been on the approximate 4 month/3~4 week release cycle for their Linux and Solaris (occasionally FreeBSD will be added to the mix) display drivers. Of course, the 4 week release cycle in between the major releases generally only contains an improvement or two, and then bug fixes for problems introduced in the last major release. However, this time around it seems that NVIDIA's Linux display driver launch may be pushed back a bit. According to a source, the next Linux driver installment may not be introduced until Computex Taipei of this year. The buzz this year at Computex Taipei will certainly be AMD's Socket AM2 among other things, and it just so happens that new Linux drivers from the green may occur during this Taiwan show. The Phoronix coverage from Computex Taipei 2005 is available here. ATI of course has yet to come out with its May refresh from the Linux and Windows display drivers. We hope to soon acquire more information on details related to the upcoming NVIDIA Linux drivers.
