NVIDIA's Unix team today released the 370.28 driver as their newest Linux/BSD/Solaris driver in their short-lived branch.

The NVIDIA 370.28 driver most notably adds over/under-clocking support for GeForce GTX 1000 "Pascal" graphics cards. This Pascal clock adjustments via CoolBits was previously added to the NVIDIA 370 beta Linux driver from last month.

The other big feature to this stable driver release is the experimental PRIME synchronization support to reduce tearing on multi-GPU systems, assuming you are upgrading to the newest X.Org Server 1.19 code currently in Git form.

The NVIDIA 370.28 driver also has several fixes, including for potential hangs in vkQuake and Dota 2. There is also a new PixelShiftMode for the MetaMode option.
