      They released new beta driver too after almost 2 months of silence.
      Release highlights since 378.13:
      Added support for the following GPUs:
      GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
      Quadro M520
      TITAN Xp

      Restored support for the following GPU:
      GRID K520

      Improved compatibility with recent kernels.
      Fixed a bug that caused "nvidia-settings --query all" to print many duplicate entries.
      Fixed a bug that caused applications to crash in some situations when calling glXMakeCurrent while OpenGL threaded optimizations were enabled.

      This frequently occurred when Steam was attempting to make a video appear full-screen.
      Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU applications to use the blit presentation queue when a previous VDPAU application didn't shut down cleanly.
      Fixed hangs and crashes that could occur when an OpenGL context is created while the system is out of available memory.
      Fixed a bug that caused corruption when OpenGL windows were moved or resized.
      Fixed a bug that caused X screens that use Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none" to be resized to 640x480 when using "xrandr -s" to change the screen configuration.
      Fixed a kernel crash that occurred when attempting to map large user memory allocations into CUDA.
      Disabled OpenGL threaded optimizations by default, initially enabled in 378.09, due to various reports of instability.
      Added support for the following Vulkan extensions:
      VK_EXT_acquire_xlib_display
      VK_EXT_display_control
      VK_EXT_display_surface_counter
      VK_EXT_direct_mode_display
      VK_KHX_external_memory
      VK_KHX_external_memory_fd
      VK_KHX_external_semaphore
      VK_KHX_external_semaphore_fd

      These extensions require a Vulkan loader version >= 1.0.42.
      Removed the X driver's logo splash screen and the corresponding NoLogo and LogoPath xorg.conf options.
      Added the "ResamplingMethod" MetaMode option, adding support for bicubic resampling methods when scaling screen transformations are in use. See the README for more details.
      Fixed a bug that left HDMI and DisplayPort audio muted after a framebuffer console mode was restored. For some displays, this caused the display to remain blank.
      Fixed a bug that caused audio over DisplayPort to stop working when the monitor was unplugged and plugged back in or awoken from DPMS power-saving mode.
      Fixed a regression that caused corruption in certain applications, such as window border shadows in Unity, after resuming from suspend.

        So now it is disabled

            Not a card you want to buy. A card you want to sell.

              Lol and only for the small price of building a complete new i7 system 16Gb ram and gtx 1050 ti amongst other high end components. I think the prices of even a midrange graphics card is insane. I am doing great with just a gtx 1050 ti @1080p. Sure have to do settings tweaking but its way way better than what I had. I think the gtx 1050 ti for 140 bucks for what it can do is insane value. Oh by the way I build a completely new i7 seven just a for months back enclosure and all for under that $1200. If you have the money though power to you! I am just happy with what I have.

                Wow, about 10% more performance than a 1080ti for only twice the price? What a bargain!! Wait, what?? It has 1GB of RAM extra on top of that? OMG, shut up an take mym oney !!1!!1!!

                  In majority of cases the relationship between the number of CPU/GPU compute units and the price of the CPU is nonlinear.

                  A simple economic model explaining this is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fixed_cost

                    Until better performance comes to gaming in linux....gaming both in llinux and windows 10 myself. I can't justify even buying a gtx 1060 or gtx 1070. I don't want to be a downer but I stand by my reason. Eventually I will go for something like a gtx 1070 when the price goes down a bit and the support and performance is better.
