    Default NVIDIA 310.19 Linux Driver Carries Enhancements

    Phoronix: NVIDIA 310.19 Linux Driver Carries Enhancements

    There's a new release available in the NVIDIA 310.xx Linux graphics driver series. The NVIDIA 310 Linux driver is already great for its big performance improvements thanks to Steam/Source coming to Linux and threaded OpenGL optimizations, but now the driver has been made even better...

    Still waiting for Nvidia to grow some some balls and use or reimplement dma-buf.

    What would help Linux as a gaming platform probably as much as Valve porting Steam to Linux is AMD offering decent drivers for their cards. Right now if you want somewhat near Windows performance there is no way around Nvidia and its blob.

    Well the 300 series introduced a lot of changes for the RandR stuff and at the time NVIDIA devs promised to re-work the nvidia-settings utility to make it easier to configure the new options.

    The interesting thing here is that this release seems to bring 310 out of beta and into the stable branch now.

    Default Wayland

    Still no support for Wayland.
    Still no support for fast-VT switching.

    Still not open source.

    Not using 310 yet but 304 removed settings like Gamma.

    There seems to be a setting... does it not work?

    You might be able to use the 'xgamma' utility.

    This is the very reason all my computers have Nvidia chips. I have to go with whoever has drivers that Do Not Suck (tm)

    Thumbs up my apu

    I need to find a small low-profile NVidia solution for my media computer: E450.

    AMD should shovel more money into Linux. No excuses.

    I can't understand why they are in so much financial debt.
    Big contract with Nintendo (Wii uses ATI)
    Big contract with Microsoft (XBox 360 uses ATI)
    Every major motherboard with an AMD cpu ships with an ATI chipset.

    Honestly, I thought it a mistake because the graphics on the original Xbox were great under Nvidia.
    360 was always a bit sluggish compared to the original Xbox. Essentially they are the same filesystem and operating system.

    I've finally opted to replace my gpu's with Nvidia. The support from NVidia is unprecedented.
    I can still get a old driver for an old card that runs on the latest Xorg.
