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.
With NVIDIA's upcoming 355.xx Linux driver series they will be employing a new kernel module build system for their proprietary driver.
NVIDIA is announcing today the release of a new OpenACC Toolkit for enhancing GPU computing, but sadly it's only free in the long-run for academia developers and researchers.
NVIDIA announced from the International Machine Learning Society (ICML) conference the release candidate for CUDA 7.5.
The shocker of the day is that aside from an independent (non-NVIDIA) open-source developer working on Nouveau SPIR-V support is that there's an actual NVIDIA employee working towards CUDA compute support atop the open-source Nouveau graphics driver.
There's another step forward today in NVIDIA's open-source/Linux hardware support! NVIDIA will begin supplying hardware reference headers for the Nouveau DRM driver.
It's been three years since Linus Torvalds did his very public shaming of NVIDIA over their Linux support and called them the worst company he ever dealt with, gave them the finger, etc.
NVIDIA released the 352.21 Linux driver today as the latest release in their 352.xx driver series.
NVIDIA has acquired the Graphics and Portability Group (GPG) of TransGaming, the company formerly responsible for the Wine-based Cedega software along with Cedar and other porting technologies.
NVIDIA unveiled the GeForce GTX 980 Ti today in gearing up for Computex Taipei. The GTX 980 Ti is NVIDIA's new flagship gaming GPU, which will set you back $649.99 USD.
Following FFmpeg in supporting NVENC for NVIDIA's GPU-based video encoding on Linux systems, the forked Libav project has now written up their own NVENC support for H.264 and H.265/HEVC.
NVIDIA has been working out plans for their graphics driver to support Mir and Wayland. As part of that, besides their recent EGL support, they've been tackling kernel mode-setting.
NVIDIA introduced yesterday their first beta driver in the new 352 Linux / Solaris / FreeBSD graphics driver series.
NVIDIA announced the release yesterday of the 346.72 driver, which is their latest binary Linux update in the long-lived 346 branch.
The NVIDIA 349 driver series has been stabilized today for Solaris, FreeBSD, and Linux with the debut of the NVIDIA 349.16 update.
If you're not on the NVIDIA 349 Linux beta but rather an older version of NVIDIA's binary Linux driver, today they released the 346.59 bug-fix release as the latest in their long-lived series.
Those with a bit of humor will love the demo NVIDIA recently used for showing off their Nouveau-based open-source graphics driver stack on the Tegra K1 SoC.
NVIDIA just released their first beta Linux graphics driver in their new, short-lived 349.xx driver series.
Last week NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX TITAN X, their latest $999+ USD graphics card. This new graphics card packs 12GB of GDDR5 video memory and the Maxwell-based GPU is capable of 7 TFLOPS of single-precision compute power. Now it's time for some Linux benchmarks of this new high-end graphics card at Phoronix.
While NVIDIA is working towards Vulkan and SPIR-V support, they aren't done optimizing for OpenGL as OpenGL will still be in use for years to come and there's many titles still seeking better performance. With the newest NVIDIA drivers, there's now NV_command_list support for further lowering the OpenGL overhead within the NVIDIA binary blob.
Since the beginning of the year CUDA 7 has been out in development form while this week from GTC 2015 NVIDIA has officially launched CUDA 7.0.
Besides NVIDIA announcing yesterday the $999 GeForce GTX TITAN X graphics card that will soon be reviewed under Linux on Phoronix, NVIDIA also announced the Digits DevBox: a $15,000 USD Linux-powered system.
NVIDIA officially announced the GeForce GTX Titan X $1000 USD graphics card today to kick off their 2015 GPU Technology Conference.
Just days after NVIDIA released the VDPAU 1.0 library for Linux GPU-based video decoding support with H.265/HEVC added, libvdpau 1.1 was released to fix-up the support for this new video format.
Next week is NVIDIA's annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC) taking place in San Jose, California.
NVIDIA announced today the release of VDPAU version 1.0 with support for HEVC / H.265 video decoding.
