    Default NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 "Kepler" On Linux?

    Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 "Kepler" On Linux?

    NVIDIA has finally introduced their first Kepler-based graphics card: the GeForce GTX 680. The new Kepler graphics architecture is an exciting successor to Fermi, but how well does this new graphics processor work under Linux? Here's a glimpse in what to expect for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600 series on Linux...

    And David Airlie just asked Linus to pull these changes along with Nouveau's de-staging

    That sure will make a nice announcement

    On the official there ins't any binary driver for Linux now. Look self:

    So don't write in news, that it is supported.

    @ olbi: The support which the article is about, is unofficial. The 680 indeed isn't listed as supported.

    NVIDIA will be releasing 295.33 in a few hours with official support.

    It's nice of Nvidia to send Phoronix a card. Now if they'd only enable OC'ing in their binary drivers and show Nouveau a little love

    The 295.33 driver is available in the Ubuntu-X-Swat PPA for easy installation by users of Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc.: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates

    AMD results are not available for these GPGPU results since the AMD OpenCL/APP SDK was being problematic under Linux at the time,
    What kind of problem? JuliaGPU and SmallPt run without problems on my HD7970/HD6970 GPUs (I'm running Debian GNU/Linux, fglrx 12-3).

    Also, I would like to see some OpenCL double-precision float point benchmarks, as this type of workload is very important for scientific computation.
