Recent releases of NVIDIA's proprietary Linux driver support creating OpenGL contexts outside of the X Server.
For any NVIDIA Tegra users out there, a ton of exciting support work is finally being mainlined with the Linux 4.5 kernel.
NVIDIA yesterday hosted a Vulkan Developers Day at their campus for graphics developers to learn more about the next-generation Khronos API.
NVIDIA has released new patches today for helping the open-source Nouveau driver step towards properly supporting the GeForce GTX 900 "Maxwell" graphics cards as well as better supporting Tegra.
For those not following me on Twitter, the past week I've been busy running a huge OpenGL performance comparison (with performance-per-Watt metrics) on basically every NVIDIA GeForce GPU I have available going back to the GeForce 6 days up through the GeForce GTX 900 series and GTX TITAN X.
A NVIDIA engineer has penned a post about engaging with Vulkan and how this soon-to-be-released graphics API is great going forward.
NVIDIA released yesterday the second Linux driver beta in the 361.xx series.
NVIDIA's Unix graphics driver team is starting off the new year by releasing their first public beta in the 361 Linux driver series.
At NVIDIA's CES press conference last night they announced the DRIVE PX2 as a "in-car super-computer" that's "as powerful as 150 MacBook Pros", while this SC is powered by a yet-to-be-announced SoC.
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.
