    I wonder if Nvidia will release low-end variants of the 1000 series (like a GT 1020 or GT 1010) for hardware accelerated desktop or video decode that we can use with Nouveau on Linux.

    But then again, for what a low end card will fetch on the market, I'd think it'd be a lot more cheaper and economical to simply use the iGPU on the latest Intel Skylakes or AMD's latest processor microarchitecture, whatever that is.

    I don't disagree, but at work I need the workstation to be stable above all else and at home I don't have a lot of time to tinker. So I'm using Kubuntu at work and Neon at home.
    But that's the beauty of Linux: between Debian stable and Gentoo/Arch, there's a distro for everyone.

    I guess I'll break down and get one of these Pascal cards just to support nvidia for supporting Linux so well.

    Should I go 1060 or 1070? Or maybe wait for the Titan P?

    Maybe I'll get two cards.

    You know what? Fuck you nVidia! You can keep your shit. I used to have an 980 Ti. I'm going for AMD now.

    And that's why I don't buy NVIDIA cards anymore, and why I ordered an RX 480. They have the right to not release firmware files and help open-source developers, and I've got the right to not buy their products

    Good job to Ben though!

    You can even skip this step and go directly to Ubuntu's driver manager. You won't get the absolute latest video driver, but it's safer if you're not comfortable fiddling with PPAs.

    Assuming the proprietary graphics driver currently supports that GPU, all you have to do is add the graphics PPA and install the driver and reboot. Here's a one-liner that should take care of that on a clean install:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository 'ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa' -y && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install 'nvidia-367' -y && sync && reboot

    My apologies. I'm probably misunderstanding what this and the other article said, but will I have to do anything weird to get the card installed and running (on Ubuntu 16 for example)? I don't mind proprietary drivers. I'd just like to drop it in, click a few buttons, and be able to continue using my PC.
    With kernel 4.8 or higher your card will be detected, X (or your favorite Wayland composer for that instance) will be able to set any video mode supported by your monitor, and you will be able to use an (unaccelerated for now) desktop. There should even be no need to click a few buttons.

    Edit: then as said above, you can download & install the proprietary driver if you wish, following the standard procedure of your distribution.
