Besides announcing today announcing the most powerful graphics card in the world, the GeForce GTX TITAN, NVIDIA also announced the Tegra 4i. While part of the latest Tegra 4 generation of NVIDIA ARM SoCs and is their first product integrating an LTE processor, it's a bit of a disappointment.
NVIDIA today unveiled the GeForce GTX TITAN as "the world's fastest" graphics processor and the company even claims "the only [GPU] in the world powerful enough to play any game at any resolution at any time."
Aside from a lot of other exciting DRM driver happenings for the Linux 3.9 kernel, it looks like the DRM "PRIME Helpers" that were conceived by NVIDIA to help them support DMA_BUF in their binary driver will be merged.
Now that I'm back in the United States, I'm beginning to upload the Phoronix recordings of the X.Org development talks that happened this past weekend in Brussels at FOSDEM 2013. Here's the video of the NVIDIA Open Tegra talk that covers the ongoing work for creating an open-source graphics driver for NVIDIA's increasingly popular ARM SoCs.
An update on the open-source NVIDIA Tegra graphics driver was shared this weekend in Brussels. The Tegra DRM driver was merged and there's more features to be implemented in succeeding releases. Unfortunately, open-source 3D support for NVIDIA's ARM hardware isn't yet on the radar.
NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner released version 0.6 of the libvdpau open-source library before calling it a week.
For those conservative Linux desktop users not wishing to immediately upgrade to the exciting NVIDIA 313 Linux driver, NVIDIA on Monday morning released the 310.32 official driver. While not as exciting as the new 313 series, this 310.32 update carries many of the same changes.
NVIDIA released the 313.18 Linux graphics driver this morning as the first official/certified (non-beta) driver in their 313.xx driver series. The NVIDIA 313 Linux driver release packs an awesome number of changes.
Aaron Plattner at NVIDIA is still working on the open-source "PRIME Helpers" patches for the Linux kernel. This is work towards ultimately better handling PRIME/DMA-BUF for NVIDIA Optimus Technology on Linux.
At the same time as officially announcing the NVIDIA Tegra 4, the Santa Clara company has also announced an Android-powered open gaming platform in the form of a portable gaming device that uses their latest-generation ARM hardware.
With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) taking place this week in Las Vegas, NVIDIA has officially rolled out their next-generation Tegra 4 ARM platform.
Earlier this week I shared some AMD Catalyst OpenCL benchmarks showing the performance gains made by AMD's proprietary Radeon graphics driver this year in bettering the GPGPU results. In this article is similar testing on the NVIDIA side with their binary driver.
NVIDIA released Linux kernel patches this morning for supporting their next-gen "Tegra 4" SoC under Linux. A few details were revealed within the code commits.
This week the NVIDIA Linux developers released the NVIDIA 313.09 Beta Linux graphics driver. This driver packs in many new features so some early benchmarks of this first 313.xx Linux driver release have already been carried out.
NVIDIA has released their first binary Linux graphics driver beta in the 313.xx series. The NVIDIA 313.09 Beta has bug-fixes plus new features to make for an exciting Linux gaming experience.
NVIDIA is still working on a way to implement buffer-sharing for their closed-source Linux graphics driver.
New details have been shared with Phoronix about the back-story that led to the work on the open-source NVIDIA Tegra DRM graphics driver that will be introduced in the Linux 3.8 kernel.
NVIDIA has published initial patches for providing open-source 2D hardware acceleration support on their NVIDIA Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 SoCs. This work is based upon the experimental open-source Direct Rendering Manager driver to be merged into the Linux 3.8 kernel.
With the Linux 3.8 kernel in early 2013 there is going to be an open-source NVIDIA Tegra 2 DRM driver. NVIDIA is currently working out initial patches for applying 2D acceleration atop this mainline Linux kernel driver.
NVIDIA has quietly released new versions of its Linux 4 Tegra software platform that's currently targeting their "Cardhu" and "Ventana" platforms.
There's a new release available in the NVIDIA 310.xx Linux graphics driver series. The NVIDIA 310 Linux driver is already great for its big performance improvements thanks to Steam/Source coming to Linux and threaded OpenGL optimizations, but now the driver has been made even better.
Back in August a basic DRM driver for the NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics core appeared but wasn't merged into the Linux kernel. The Tegra DRM driver still hasn't been merged to this day, but it might hit staging with the Linux 3.8 kernel.
The NVIDIA 304.64 Linux graphics driver was released today with support for new graphics cards, address performance issues related to recent Linux kernels, and provide other fixes for those relying upon this closed-source driver.
