NVIDIA Corp is out today with a rather notewrothy 367.xx series Linux driver update.

The NVIDIA 367.35 driver that was released moments ago has GeForce GTX 1000 "Pascal" support improvements along with performance improvements and more. The possible performance win is improved buffer write speeds of the NVIDIA DRMKMS driver by using write-combined DRM dumb buffers.

The biggest addition for end-users with the 367.35 driver is support for VDPAU Feature Set H, which allows GPU-based decoding of 8K H.265/HEVC video streams. That's there now for Pascal users. Also benefiting Pascal with this new driver update is now being able to query clock values.

The NVIDIA 367.35 driver also has fixes for sometimes skipping Vulkan frames when the Composite extension is enabled and various other bug fixes.
