Last month NVIDIA announced a really exciting ARM development board based around their Tegra K1 ARM SoC called the Jetson TK1. This high-end ARM board was supposed to begin shipping this week, but it looks like that might be in question.
It looks like NVIDIA is finally preparing to support OpenCL 1.2 within their NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
We've been talking about NVIDIA's work on CUDA 6 since last November but today the sixth generation Compute Unified Device Architecture has finally been officially released.
With this week's NVIDIA 337.12 Beta driver release that was exciting for bringing overclocking support for new GPUs and other features, it also looks like NVIDIA developers are working on G-SYNC Linux support.
With this morning's release of the NVIDIA 337.12 Beta Linux driver there is finally GPU overclocking support for the NVIDIA "Fermi" GPUs and newer, a.k.a. the GeForce 400 series and newer. This long-awaited overclocking support, however, isn't setup the same as when overclocking older GeForce GPUs with the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
This past weekend I wrote about NVIDIA planning to release a huge Linux driver update that would finally bring overclocking support under Linux to GeForce 400/500/600/700 series hardware. That milestone has now been realized with the 337.12 Beta driver release and besides overclocking it has a bunch of other features.
At long last NVIDIA is expected to release a new binary Linux driver tomorrow that will support GPU overclocking for the GeForce 400 series hardware and newer (Fermi, Kepler, and Maxwell, inclusive). This first NVIDIA 337 series Linux driver release will also bring other new features.
In late March NVIDIA unveiled the Tegra K1 Jetson development board as a very exciting quad-core Cortex-A15 with NVIDIA's fifth companion core while also leveraging a Kepler GPU with 192 CUDA cores, Serial ATA support, USB 3.0 support, and other features. This exciting ARM development board will begin shipping later this month for less than $200 USD.
While their proprietary Linux graphics driver right now only supports X11-based environments, NVIDIA has talked in the past about their plans to eventually support Wayland, and they've reaffirmed their intentions this week to supporting Wayland by their closed-source Linux GPU driver.
Earlier this month we found out NVIDIA would be dropping pre-Fermi support from their mainline graphics driver on Windows and Linux. For Linux users, we have some good news about NVIDIA's Linux support plans.
Besides announcing the next-gen Pascal GPU family, NVIDIA just announced the Jetson TK1 DevKit... Already I have put in an order for this ARM development board with likely more on the way in being super-excited about the performance potential of this sub-$200 ARM Linux platform.
While NVIDIA's recently-announced Maxwell graphics architecture is doing terrific under Linux, Pascal was announced today as their next-generation GPU come 2016.
A NVIDIA Linux engineer has published a new set of twelve patches for the open-source Nouveau driver. These kernel patches paired with a modified Mesa driver yield a open-source combination that can start to run shaders and render triangles.
During the Game Developer's Conference this week I had some hands-on time with a NVIDIA Tegra K1 device.
NVIDIA will be removing all support for graphics processors prior to the GeForce 400 "Fermi" series from their mainline Linux graphics driver.
NVIDIA released the 304.1210 legacy Linux graphics driver this morning.
NVIDIA released on Wednesday the release candidate for CUDA 6, the latest major breakthrough in the company's parallel programming environment.
With this morning's release of the NVIDIA 334.21 Linux graphics driver there is now support for GPUs with VDPAU Feature Set E.
The NVIDIA 334.21 Linux graphics driver was released this morning and its change-log is quite lengthy.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 is a great value graphics card for $120 that delivers great mid-range performance while its performance-per-Watt is exceptional. If you don't mind using binary graphics drivers, the GTX 750 based upon NVIDIA's new Maxwell architecture with the GM107 is worth checking out.
Now that the Tegra DRM/KMS driver is beginning to stabilize, patches were published today by Thierry Reding -- who is now employed by NVIDIA -- to implement libdrm support for the Tegra open-source Linux graphics driver.
NVIDIA has released the 331.49 Linux graphics driver today, but it's not what you might think.
I've been briefed this morning on what NVIDIA will be doing to encourage open-source driver development for the just-launched Maxwell GPUs that succeed Kepler.
Hopefully you have just read our launch-day review of the very exciting GeForce GTX 750 Ti "Maxwell" that is an excellent mid-range performer for Linux users with phenomenal power efficiency. For developers needing not a mid-range graphics card but an ultimate performer, NVIDIA is also quietly shipping today the GeForce GTX Titan Black.
NVIDIA announced their first public Linux graphics driver beta in the 334.xx series today and with it comes a splendid number of changes.
Although it likely won't be in focus for any future Tegra SoCs, the NVIDIA "Grate" reverse-engineered, open-source Tegra driver continues to be developed for supporting the existing Tegra 2, 3, and 4 series SoCs.
For those questioning whether NVIDIA's open-source graphics merits of the past few months have been real, this weekend NVIDIA released the initial open-source hardware enablement code to support their forthcoming Tegra K1 SoC graphics within Nouveau!
While NVIDIA may not be doing much to help out Nouveau at the moment, they at least are supporting their Linux customers well in continuing to maintain their legacy binary Linux graphics drivers. The 304.1190 Linux driver was released today to fix a problem from NVIDIA's Nalu days.
An open-source, independent developer has written an implementation of NVIDIA 3D Vision for OpenGL with Linux compatibility.
It's been a while since the last official mainline NVIDIA Linux graphics update, but that changed this morning with the debut of the exciting NVIDIA 331.38 Linux GPU driver.
