Going back to the beginning of this year there's been talk of NVIDIA looking at Optimus support for Linux and in August they confirmed they were working on NVIDIA Optimus Linux support. As part of their Optimus Linux implementation they want to use DMA-BUF for the multi-GPU interactions just like the open-source drivers, so that they can all work together. However, kernel developers continue to reject this notion.

While the hardware hasn't even been released yet by NVIDIA, support for the very interesting and powerful GK110, a.k.a. "Kepler 2", is already starting to materialize within the open-source reverse-engineered Nouveau driver.
NVIDIA on Tuesday released the open-source libvdpau 0.5 library for their Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix.
At long last, NVIDIA confirms they are working on supporting their multi-GPU Optimus Technology under Linux with their proprietary graphics driver.
I have confirmed with NVIDIA that the current 304.xx Linux graphics driver series is "the last release branch for some cards, including GeForce 6/7."
NVIDIA released a new binary Linux graphics driver on Monday morning.
NVIDIA has announced today the release of their GeForce GTX 660 Ti "Kepler" graphics card, a new competitive NVIDIA GPU for the $299 USD price-point. The Linux binary driver from NVIDIA should be able to handle this new graphics processor while the Kepler support for Nouveau is still being raised.
The first certified NVIDIA 304 series Linux graphics driver has been released. The NVIDIA 304.37 Linux x86/x86_64 graphics driver packs in 41 official changes affecting several areas of this leading proprietary graphics driver.
NVIDIA doesn't usually show up at the annual X.Org Developers' Summits/Conferences, but for some reason at least one NVIDIA employee will be trekking to Germany for meeting with the open-source developers.
Days after it was publicly revealed that a security vulnerability in the NVIDIA Linux driver easily yields root system access, NVIDIA has updated their proprietary graphics driver to address this problem.
NVIDIA's had a past few weeks with Linus Torvalds having harsh words for NVIDIA, the downing of their forums, and now a NVIDIA driver exploit being revealed that gives normal users the rights to super-user privileges.
The NVIDIA 304.30 Linux graphics driver is available this Monday afternoon. There's several exciting changes to this latest NVIDIA Linux driver for the 304 series that's still in beta.
An ex-NVIDIA engineer that had a patent concerning high compression rate texture mapping attempted to attack an open-source project for supposedly violating this patent related to software graphics texture compression. The open-source software in question is Crunch and it's written by a Valve Software developer.
NVIDIA released the 304.22 Linux x86/x86_64 graphics driver beta this morning, which has a number of new features and fixes. There's 27 official changes to be exact.
There's some hope for NVIDIA laptop customers that rely upon their binary Linux graphics drivers that one day hope to utilize Optimus Technology.
It's been an interesting week for NVIDIA with Torvalds speaking quite negatively of NVIDIA, NVIDIA PR's fluffy response, and their recent loss of a huge order due to not having an open-source driver / MIPS port. However, NVIDIA Linux engineers are hoping to be better Linux patrons.
A while back I performed an OpenCL performance comparison against a range of AMD Radeon graphics cards. In this article, the table has turned as the OpenCL results on NVIDIA's GeForce graphics cards are examined.
NVIDIA has lost an order of at least ten million graphics cards because their GeForce/Quadro driver is closed-source.
NVIDIA's PR department has issued a statement following the harsh comments by Linus Torvalds last week where he referred to the graphics company as the single worst company they have ever dealt with, called them out on not supporting Optimus, and other issues.
Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel, has called out NVIDIA for their poor graphics drivers / support in a public presentation. In the talk he called NVIDIA "the single worst company we have ever dealt with" and ended his green comments with "NVIDIA: FUCK YOU!"
