While NVIDIA has a ways to go on the open-source driver side, when it comes to proprietary drivers on Linux the green graphics giant continued to dominate with their high quality proprietary driver that continued adding in new features.
It seems a few days ago NVIDIA quietly released some documentation to help open-source driver developers working on Nouveau.
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.
NVIDIA yesterday released the 358.13 Linux graphics driver as the newest mainline driver. This week, however, they've also updated their legacy drivers for X.Org Server 1.18.
The NVIDIA 358.13 Linux graphics driver was released today as the latest bug-fix version since the new-feature 358.09 beta driver.
The US Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration has teamed up with NVIDIA's PGI compiler division to create an open-source Fortran compiler atop LLVM.
Today while setting up some CUDA benchmarks, I noticed that CUDA 7.5 is now officially available for SteamOS.
NVIDIA is readying their Vulkan drivers for a same-day release and on the Windows side they've already begun exposing some of the Vulkan interface.
A NVIDIA developer has posted two updated patches for PRIME synchronization with the Intel DRM driver to hopefully fix tearing when using PRIME GPU sharing.
Alexandre Courbot, a developer at NVIDIA who has been working on the Tegra open-source graphics support a lot for Nouveau, presented last week at LinuxCon Europe 2015.
The first public beta in NVIDIA's 358 driver series for Linux, BSD, and Solaris is available! Building off the NVIDIA 355 series, the 358 series adds in more pieces of the puzzle for interfacing with DRM/KMS and continues stepping closer to Mir/Wayland support.
It seems that NVIDIA's proprietary Linux graphics driver is having some bad interaction issues with the newest Intel Skylake systems.
The proprietary NVIDIA Linux driver has a slider within its nvidia-settings utility for adjusting the OpenGL image settings, but do those settings have much of an affect on performance?
The xf86-video-nouveau DDX driver has dropped support for GLAMOR hardware acceleration and in the process eliminated the support for the Maxwell GPUs.
CUDA 7.5 is officially available this morning for NVIDIA customers wishing to use their proprietary compute API.
NVIDIA has shared some details on their Vulkan driver that will be released later in the year.
NVIDIA released the libvdpau 1.1.1 library today to fix three new CVE security issues.
NVIDIA has released the 355.11 Linux driver today, which is their first stable release in the 355.xx series.
NVIDIA has announced their GRID 2.0 platform while also unveiling their Tesla M6 and M60 server cards.
The latest stable update to the NVIDIA 352 Linux driver series is now available, for those not riding the current NVIDIA 355 driver series.
With NVIDIA this morning rolling out the GeForce GTX 950, here's a look at their current product stack.
Complementing VOGL and APITrace for Linux OpenGL debugging is now the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Debugger.
Well, that didn't take long... Minutes after the embargo lifted on all of the Khronos announcements today that include new OpenGL desktop extensions, NVIDIA has put out a supported beta driver for Windows and Linux.
While no performance improvements were explicitly mentioned as part of this week's NVIDIA 355 Beta driver release for Linux, there's been several requests by Phoronix readers to benchmark the new driver.
NVIDIA this morning released their first public Linux driver beta in the 355.xx series, and it's quite an exciting update!
Earlier this week I posted some initial benchmark figures for the NVIDIA Tegra X1 on Ubuntu Linux. Those results showed much promise for this 64-bit ARM big.LITTLE SoC that also bears a Maxwell GPU, but that wasn't tested for the initial comparison. Here are a few more benchmark results from this Tegra X1, including an Ubuntu 15.04 installation to show the difference against the Tegra X1 on Ubuntu 14.10.
NVIDIA released the 352.30 Linux graphics driver this morning that adds support for one GPU plus has a handful of bug-fixes.
The GeForce GTX 980 Ti as NVIDIA's current highest-end desktop GPU is running great under Linux, assuming you don't mind running the proprietary graphics drivers.
