NVIDIA has once again managed same-day Linux support for their newest graphics processors.

With the GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 having just launched, NVIDIA immediately put out the 343.22 Linux graphics driver that enables support for these high-end Maxwell based GPUs. As said in that earlier article, in the next few days our review samples should be arriving to test out these high-end, high-performance Maxwell graphics cards under Linux to see how they perform. The GeForce GTX 750 Maxwell graphics cards have been fantastic under Linux so I'm super excited about the GTX 900 series.

With today's NVIDIA 343.22 Linux driver release the main feature is the Linux hardware enablement for the GTX 970/980 parts. Besides that, there's just a number of bug-fixes. Bug fixes include better handling of the sync-to-vblank setting, OpenGL out-of-memory issue during mode switching, a UseSysmemPixmapAccel control, and various bug-fixes.

Besides this updated NVIDIA 343 Linux driver being out for Linux x86/x86_64/ARM users, the equivalent driver is also out today for FreeBSD and Solaris users. Download this new NVIDIA driver at NVIDIA.com.
