    Phoronix: NVIDIA 177.76 Display Driver

    Last month we saw the release of the NVIDIA 177.67 Linux driver along with the 177.67 beta driver, and a 177.70 driver. In the fourth NVIDIA Linux driver release in under a month's time, the 177.76 display driver has been released. This too looks like another beta driver with more fixes in store for those with GeForce or Quadro hardware owners.

    There are all kinds of problems with screen corruption when using non-Qt apps, not related to slowness. These issues are on 6 and 7 series cards.
