NVIDIA To Discontinue Linux Support For Some GPUs
Nvidia does not support Linux, and cannot "stop" supporting something they didn't support to begin with. Nvidia supports their GPUs and releases a binary driver to enable their users to utilize them under linux.Quote:
NVIDIA To Discontinue Support For Some GPUs on Linux
With this, NVIDIA certainly gained a former AMD customer...
When the news of r600-r700 drop of support came, i was really angered with AMD, especially since they seem to favour newer generations in the opensource radeon driver. To me, AMD wanted to push people to upgrade, they essentially killed the not-so-old generations on Linux.
Now NVIDIA, not only will still provide legacy drivers like they always did, so their older generations will work on Linux for many years to come, but, something that most didn't notice, they dropped support for much older gpus than AMD. Those dropped are D3D9 gpus, not 10-10.1 like AMD's... It makes sense, that after so many years, these older generations won't get any new features, it is not like that they could gain anything noticable anyway, and most are well below modern gaming requirements.
And to think that arrogant overrated prick told NVIDIA to f*** just because they won't open their expensive intellectual property to him...
Ha, told you they'd be dropping support for something soon! Though I thought they'd also drop series 8 and 9.
