    No wayland support yet? What a bummer they just made one little fix to the EGL driver.

      G-Sync

      Fuck G-Sync, I don't want Nvidia's proprietary G-Sync.
      I want VESA's open standard Adaptive-Sync (marketed by AMD under the name FreeSync).

        Does this support NV_command_list?

          that's was supported already with earlier driver. But if you insist:
          Code:
          $ glxinfo | grep command_list
              GL_NV_blend_square, GL_NV_command_list, GL_NV_compute_program5,
          Damned my card does not support hevc:
          Code:
          $ vdpauinfo
          display: :0   screen: 0

          Hmh need to update my graphics card ... again. gtx960 is too powerfull for me, hopefully they release weaker version of the same chip. I highly doubt there will be revised version of gm107 and I would be stupid to update gm107 to gm207

                At simple seek in wine, performance seems very similar with 346.47, however in assasins creed brotherhood single player appears gains around 5fps depending scene



                Maybe more later add other tests

                  No, you're right. Ninja, haha... I checked with JuliaGPU before upgrading just now: it was showing the version as OpenCL 1.1 CUDA 7.0.28, now it's OpenCL 1.2 CUDA 7.0.0 (um, right... CUDA toolkit 7.0.28 is installed anyway, but the driver has its own support level, and I guess even 7.0 would be specific enough). GTX 550 Ti, fwiw. Being at compute capability 2.1, I expect there will be no CL 2.x in this card, but it's nice to see any progress after all the years.

                    The REAL news is the "YUV 4:2:0 compression support at HDMI 2.0 [email protected]" support. I can finally play games on Linux with my 4k 850b TV!!
