Valve released SteamOS 2.87 this week as the latest "Brewmaster" release of their Debian 8 based Linux gaming distribution.

SteamOS 2.87 switches to the NVIDIA 367.27 driver in order to provide official support for the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 Pascal graphics cards (the GTX 1060 should also work on that driver release, just not officially recognized).

Besides the updated NVIDIA Linux binary blob, SteamOS 2.87 now enables the new AMDGPU-PRO driver stack for Bonaire-class GPUs. Valve says they will enable the support for other AMD GPUs as testing is completed.

In addition to these graphics driver changes, there is a range of other Debian/SteamOS package updates. More details at SteamCommunity.com.
