Written by Michael Larabel in NVIDIA on 30 May 2010 at 05:22 PM EDT. 2 Comments
Last week NVIDIA had released their first 256.xx series Linux driver in the form of the 256.25 Beta release, but as we discovered, it boasted some major performance regressions for a NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M and other mobile ASICs. This issue has now been resolved thanks to a new beta release.

The NVIDIA 256.29 Beta driver has been released and its only official change is "Fixed a bug which prevented use of high performance PowerMizer levels on systems with certain ACPI configurations."

The NVIDIA 256.29 Linux Beta driver can be downloaded at NvNews.net.
