NVIDIA 430.09 Linux Driver Brings GTX 1650 Support, Surprising VDPAU Improvements
The GeForce GTX 1650 is now supported by this new NVIDIA Linux driver along with its Max-Q Design and the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q Design.
The NVIDIA 430 Linux driver also adds HEVC YUV 4:4:4 decode support to VDPAU, various other VDPAU additions, raised the X.Org Server requirement to version 1.7, adds the GL_NV_vdpau_interop2 extension, and updates the NVIDIA installer to work better on the latest Linux distributions.
GL_NV_vdpau_interop2 is the latest NVIDIA OpenGL extension for sharing of surfaces between VDPAU and OpenGL. It's a bit surprising seeing all of the NVIDIA VDPAU work in this release since lately they've been pushing their cross-platform, CUDA-based Video Codec SDK for video encode/decode. Judging by this latest VDPAU activity, they'll at least be supporting the Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix for a while longer.
This latest NVIDIA Linux driver can be downloaded at NVIDIA.com. I'll have up GTX 1650 Linux benchmarks in the next day or two.
