eVGA GeForce GTX 750 "Maxwell" On Ubuntu Linux
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 28 February 2014. Page 3 of 9. Add A Comment

When powering up the eVGA GeForce GTX 750 with the 334.16 Linux Beta the hardware support was in place just as it was with the GTX 750 Ti. No Linux issues were encountered in running the GeForce GTX 750 aside from the lack of overclocking support by NVIDIA's Linux graphics driver with Fermi, Kepler, and now Maxwell GPUs. Hopefully the overclocking support will come soon to the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver with it being supported already for earlier generations of GPUs via CoolBits.

See my GeForce GTX 750 Ti Linux review for more of my comments related to NVIDIA's Maxwell on Linux. Overall, everything is in great shape and it's the same story for the eVGA GTX 750.
