    Phoronix: NVIDIA 190.53 Pre-Release Linux Driver

    For those not interested in the Nouveau driver, head on over to NVIDIA's FTP server as a new 190.xx driver is available. Late last month NVIDIA released the 195.22 beta Linux driver as the first in this new driver series, and while there are new features and advancements going on there, NVIDIA is still maintaining the current 190.xx stable driver series...

    GT220 HDMI audio seems to be coming up increasingly often on forums now that they're not just OEM parts, and people (myself included) are using them to build HTPCs for the holidays. Hearing about a new blob revision just reminds me of the lack of ALSA support. The driver waiting game really is no fun.

    I will say, though, that VDPAU on this series of cards in particular is very slick. Brownie points to nvidia for that~

    Well i enabled the device with a tiny patch, but did not get any mixer settings. Something is missing. Hopefull an alsa dev gets such a card soon.

    I've just ordered one of these cards (gt220), but I'm slightly under the impression that audio isn't supported through the hdmi port - any experience with this? Does it work?

    Whats so wrong with having an opensource and a closed driver? And why is it okay to have two opensource drivers when talking about working on the same thing? The closed one is at least completly different from the open ones and is usable to offer future features like digital right management etc. (no need to wine, scream, cry about not needing this... some people do).

    Personaly I think all three of the drivers are impressive and having a choice doesn't heart either.

    ABitMoreOntopic: The nvidia drivers are still way beter than the ati drivers (relevant for people interested in using their hardware to their full potential). Even my 8 year old 4200 work perfect with nvidia's legacy drivers.

    please strike the ATI/AMD BOD with inspiration, so they put some more resources into the FGLRX team, so they can fix all the broken stuff, as fast as nVida does....

    I'm curious, do you really use the DIVX acceleration? What's the use case, it always seemed like such a useless feature to me with the speed that even old CPUs can decode it. I guess I haven't ever tried any 1080p divx files, are there any in use out there?
