    So, we have 2 drivers now. One without Turing support, and another without transform feedback support.

    I wonder whether the latter will be the most used.

      Hope they add this one to the OpenSUSE repo, still on 390 now

        meir Actually, I've found it remarkably easy to create my own openSUSE RPMs for the nvidia-bumblebee* packages. I downloaded the 390.67 src.rpm that's out there and have been editing it ever since, in light of the slow speed of updates and the creeping requirements of other software. It usually only takes changing one line in nvidia-bumblebee.spec (Version: xxx.yy), although the 410 series edits were more invasive because there's all those new libraries.

        The following three files, plus rpmbuild -ba ./nvidia-bumblebee.spec, should get you started. Of course, the usual no-warranties, no-using-code-off-the-Internet-without-first-inspecting-it disclaimers apply, and I always find myself needing to delete by hand leftover files from the previous version and running ldconfig afterwards, so clearly I'm missing a few things.

          Seeing ray tracing and better yet 'DLSS' widely supported under Linux might convince me to get a RTX card... BUT I EXTREMELY DOUBT we will see that happen, at best 2-3 games a year will get the support added... not worth spit!
