    Phoronix: NVIDIA 460.67 Linux Driver Brings A Few Fixes, 5.11 Kernel Compatibility

    While we are very eager to see the NVIDIA 470 series Linux driver for at least having Wayland / DMA-BUF support improvements and OpenGL 3.0 support, for now the NVIDIA 460 series is the latest public stable series and today was updated to v460.67...

    You don't actually need this for 5.11 unless of course you run into an issue. Older driver worked for me fine. Installed this one anyway.

      Probably just hurrying to block the fact they negated their whole new platforms that hobbled cryptomining, trying to put some GPU's into the hands of desktop users and gamers by adding the cryptohash limiters in drivers. Too bad all the cryptominers will already be buying these up with botnets and will just use their broken driver indefinitely.

        Yup, 5.11+460.56 here running as smooth as ever. 5.11 compatibility must be a copy paste from a previous release.

        That driver doesn't seem to work in most mining scenarios: https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-c...-rate-limitier
        It still requires cards inserted directly into the motherboard.

          OpenGL 3.0 support...are we going back in time? xD I think you meant OpenCL ;-)

                What a crazy 'feature' for a driver.
                This is why open source is so important.

                  i'm confused. people on reddit claim that 1337 hackers bypassed the limiters, but this is saying 1337 hackers didn't, rather that nvidia's incompetence left out the limiters in a driver that was released by "accident." so what's true?

                    Actually, open source is exactly why AMD can't implement an equivalent feature. The drivers being open to modification, anyone can comment out any protections.
                    (Still, open source > closed source, but open also has its drawbacks.)

                    Nobody bypassed the protection, the claims were proven to be running other hashing algorithms, that's why the card were reporting more MH/s than expected.
                    This leaked driver indeed lacked part of the protection, but it was an internal beta (supposedly geared towards testing OpenCL under WSL), so it's pretty buggy and doesn't even work right on all cards.
                    A blunder on Nvidia's part, but not as monumental as the tech press would have you believe.
