NVIDIA GeForce 700 Series On Linux Run Excellent

For the past week now I have been running Linux benchmarks on a lot of new NVIDIA GPUs, including the GeForce GTX 760, GTX 770, GTX 780 Ti, and GTX TITAN. These graphics cards with their Linux reviews coming out soon have been running top-notch with the binary Linux driver and running a heck of a lot faster than the slow-performing Radeon R9 290 with the current Catalyst Linux driver.

NVIDIA Dropping 32-bit Linux Support For CUDA

If you are reliant upon NVIDIA's CUDA computing parallel computing platform, hopefully you're running 64-bit Linux. NVIDIA announced their plans on Friday to deprecate the 32-bit Linux x86 CUDA Toolkit and the 32-bit Linux CUDA driver.

NVIDIA Updates Legacy Driver For Decade-Old GPUs

NVIDIA released yesterday the 331.20 Linux graphics driver update that stabilizes the R331 Linux driver with new features like EGL, modern Linux kernel support, a new frame-buffer capture library, and plenty of other features. Following that, NVIDIA has now released an updated legacy driver for the GeForce 6/7 series graphics cards that are the better part of a decade old.

NVIDIA Still Working On Linux 3.11+ Support

In mid-October I had written how AMD's Catalyst driver surprisingly beat NVIDIA to modern Linux support. While NVIDIA is usually first to support new kernel releases, AMD won in shipping "out of the box" Linux 3.11 and 3.12 compatibility. NVIDIA, however, has devised a workaround and will be coming up with a more proper long-term solution.

Kepler: Nouveau Is ~20% The Speed Of NVIDIA's Blob

With the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Linux review out of the way, I carried out some benchmarks comparing the performance of the open-source "Nouveau" driver to NVIDIA's official closed-source Linux graphics driver on this Kepler-based GK107 GPU. Similar to other NVIDIA GeForce 400/500/600 GPUs, if using the Nouveau driver as found by default on Ubuntu Linux and others, you can expect the performance to be less than 20% that of the official NVIDIA Linux driver.

NVIDIA Releases Major Linux Driver With New Features, EGL

NVIDIA this morning unveiled their first Linux graphics driver beta as part of the 331.xx series. The NVIDIA 331.13 Beta that was released this morning for Linux systems is quite exciting in that it brings a whole lot of fixes, improvements, and new features. Perhaps most exciting is that there's finally (but limited) EGL support right now -- a precursor for handling Wayland and Mir.
