NVIDIA 460.56 Linux Driver Released With GeForce RTX 3060 Support

Written by Michael Larabel in NVIDIA on 25 February 2021 at 08:14 AM EST. 12 Comments
NVIDIA has updated their 460 series Linux driver to provide launch-day support for the GeForce RTX 3060.

The GeForce RTX 3060 is launching today -- assuming you can find one in stock. The RTX 3060 features 3584 CUDA cores, 1.78GHz base clock, and 12GB of GDDR6 video memory. We have not been provided with any review sample and as such no Linux benchmarks today -- at least there are the RTX 3060 Ti Linux benchmarks for those interested.

In addition to officially supporting the RTX 3060, the NVIDIA 460.56 Linux driver has a fix with indexed ray payloads in Vulkan, a bug fix where Vulkan's vkCreateDevice could fail on Ampere GPUs when using RT extensions, and a regression that could cause display corruption after resuming from suspend.

That's it for today's small NVIDIA Linux proprietary driver update, namely to officially add RTX 3060 support. This binary driver can be downloaded from NVIDIA.com.
