    Default NVIDIA Releases 195.30 Linux Beta Driver

    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases 195.30 Linux Beta Driver

    Before going off on a holiday recess, NVIDIA's Unix graphics driver team has put out a new NVIDIA driver beta release in the 195.xx driver series for Linux, FreeBSD, and OpenSolaris. Just shy of a month ago NVIDIA had put out the 195.22 Linux display driver that delivered on VDPAU improvements, support for NVIDIA 3D Vision Stereo, better DisplayPort monitor handling, and many other enhancements. The just-released NVIDIA 195.30 beta display driver now delivers on fixed performance for KDE 4.x when dealing with text that hasn't been anti-aliased, GPU acceleration for many more X RENDER compositing operations, experimental GPU acceleration of the X RENDER CompositeTrapezoids, a VDPAU overlay-based presentation queue, and lastly "nvidia-settings --query all" now really reports all available attributes (something we had been after with NVIDIA to fix)...

    Probably they think nouveau is a new name for an old driver anyway.

    VDPAU support for other graphics drivers would be nice.. with radeonhd my 1080p videos do not run smoothly, with windows they do.

    The API is there for anyone to use. It's up to the driver guru's of other cards to implement it.
