    Phoronix: The NVIDIA 390 Driver Is Playing Nicely With Linux 4.15 Kernel

    For those NVIDIA Linux users reliant upon the proprietary driver and wanting to upgrade to the Linux 4.15 kernel that will be officially released within the next two weeks, the 390.12 driver is playing nicely...

    Well in Ubuntu 18.04 prime sync breaks on 4.15 so many will be disappointed. Ubuntu could fix but likely won't

    I just wasted a couple hours going down this rabbit hole and I'm saying no; In my experience it doesn't. Only working configuration for me is 4.13.1 with nvidia-384 on Ubuntu 17.10. However I'm unsure I have the same kernel config M used in the article, I'm not convinced this would make a difference on Wayland.

    And 387.34 has no fix for memory allocation bug.
    I just upgraded from 387.34 to 390.12 and for example Shadow of Mordor do use a bit less gpu memory now.
    According to
    Code:
    nvidia-settings -t -q UsedDedicatedGPUMemory
    used gpu memory went from 1223/2048 MB to 1133/2048 MB.
    Sorry I didn't test with HD-textures or a fully modded Skyrim.
    Not bad for workaround.

    This is good news since I move to a 1080Ti Mini card in my system next week, probably the right decision too since Navi is now a 2019 product.
    I would argue that buying 1080Ti is almost never right decision because it has barely any better cooler than blower design from Nvidia and almost zero overclocking potential. Unless you plan to use custom waterblock, it doesn't fit otherwise or you got it on some kind of amazing sale. Being few bucks cheaper than next competitor variant with beefy cooler just isn't worth it (this is kinda like MSI Armor series which is universally hated for same reason).

    Yeah they clarified now they are talking about driver safeguards.
    Then it might be worth updating your article to clarify that.

    Even in the original revision they talk about "GPU Display Driver" being potentially affected, I suspect that somebody misinterpreted it as "nvidia being affected" and hence why they distanced even further (see the side-by-side comparison of new/archive.org versions). Could this be that somebody misinterpreted your original article, wrote a shitty fluff piece on routers/nbc/reddit and suddenly we have bunch of new articles feeding on the drama?
