From NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference, the company announced today the Tesla P100 as their most advanced accelerator based upon their Pascal "GP100" GPU.
Two weeks ago NVIDIA released their 364 Linux driver with initial support for Wayland and Mir. Some have asked why there aren't benchmarks yet or if GNOME 3.20 on Wayland supports the NVIDIA driver, but the short answer is the NVIDIA developers are still debating their implementation preferences with upstream Wayland developers.
While not nearly as exciting as the changes to find with the latest NVIDIA 364 Linux driver series, the 361.42 Linux driver is out today as the newest version in the 361 long-lived driver series.

NVIDIA continues to be working on PRIME synchronization support to fix tearing when using this multi-GPU method. There will be support for this functionality within the proprietary NVIDIA Linux driver.
Just under one week ago I wrote at length about the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 development board performance. It's a phenomenal ARM development board and quite powerful thanks to the Tegra X1 SoC with the Maxwell GPU and Cortex-A57 processor cores. My only gripes with the Jetson TX1 were around some issues with setting up the software as noted in the article, but it turns out there's already been some improvements in that front.
Just days after the NVIDIA 358.13 Linux driver release, the 358.16 Linux stable driver is now available.
