NVIDIA has made available their first public beta in the R525 Linux driver series.

NVIDIA 525.53 beta is out this morning as this new feature update for NVIDIA's stellar but proprietary packaged Linux driver. The NVIDIA 525.53 Linux beta adds support for Dynamic Boost on NVIDIA graphics notebooks with AMD CPUs, support for the MESA_platform_surfaceless extension, expanded functionality for the open kernel modules, updated NVIDIA installer handling, support for over-the-air updates in the Proton and Wine NVIDIA NGX build, a new CUDA debugger implementation, and various bug fixes.

NVIDIA's open-source GPU kernel driver code now supports Quadro Sync, Stereo, X11 rotation, and YUV 4:2:0 format handling for Turing and newer GPUs.

The NVIDIA installer updates include reworking the dynamic kernel module system (DKMS) support so that it's now more robust.
