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.
This past week as part of Epic Games making UE4 free to developers they managed to get NVIDIA to let them open up some of the PhysX source code as PhysX is depended upon by Unreal Engine 4 for physics handling. NVIDIA this past week ultimately opened up their entire PhysX SDK to everyone.
NVIDIA has decided to open up some of their CPU-based implementation of PhysX 3.3 with clothing and destruction libraries.
One week ahead of GDC2015 where NVIDIA will quite likely be demoing glNext on Linux, they've today introduced the 346.47 binary driver update.
NVIDIA today finally mainlined their Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix (VDPAU) support for handling video decode of H.265 / HEVC.
Alexandre Courbot spoke at FOSDEM this past weekend about enabling the NVIDIA Tegra K1's "GKA20A" Kepler-based graphics processor with the open-source Nouveau driver.
For conservative NVIDIA Linux users not quick to jump to new release streams, the 340.76 stable update is now available, which is also the driver that's continuing to provide long-term support for pre-Fermi graphics card users relying on NVIDIA's binary blob.
In continuation of this morning's launch-day article for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, the graphics card that's priced at $200 USD and is built on the very power efficient Maxwell architecture, here's some more Linux benchmark results.
While writing yesterday's article about Keith Packard leaving Intel's open-source Linux graphics team after being a longtime member of the X community, I noticed that Intel has a rather interesting new hire... A prominent member of Nouveau, the community-based, open-source NVIDIA driver project.
NVIDIA quietly released the 346.35 Linux graphics driver on Friday.
NVIDIA announced the release today of the CUDA 7.0 Release Candidate that brings new features to their popular but proprietary parallel programming toolkit.
For the better part of the year I've been using a NVIDIA Tegra K1 that sports four Cortex-A15 CPU cores and a Kepler class GPU, which yields incredible ARM performance and is all-around a great SoC. Kicking off CES week though is NVIDIA announcing the Tegra X1, which enters the 64-bit ARM world and is using a Maxwell GPU.
Before going on holiday break, Aaron Plattner at NVIDIA released version 0.9 of the VDPAU library (libvdpau) and of the VDPAU information utility (vdpauinfo).
The VDPAU API has been extended to accommodate H.264's Hi444PP profile.
Just a few days after the NVIDIA 343.36 Linux driver release, NVIDIA has outed the next beta in the NVIDIA 346 Linux driver series.
While NVIDIA's 346 Linux driver series is in beta with a great deal of improvements and new features, for those sticking to the 343.xx stable series there is out this Friday the 343.36 driver.
NVIDIA has out a wonderful Thanksgiving surprise... New Mesa code for Tegra K1 GPUs and newer!
With the new NVIDIA 346 Linux driver series NVENC support was made available for accelerated video encoding support under Linux.
This week NVIDIA introduced the 346 Linux driver beta with a huge amount of changes and new features -- from GPU over-volting to NVENC and VP8 support. Curiosity got the best of me so I've now ran some GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 Linux benchmarks to see if the performance of these new, high-end Maxwell GPUs have changed at all with this latest proprietary driver release.
NVIDIA has committed a new "nyan_blaze" motherboard for Coreboot.
One of the features introduced with this week's NVIDIA 346 Beta Linux graphics driver was the ability for the end-user to manipulate the graphics core voltage.
