NVIDIA Releases 310.51 Driver To Kill Off The Series
Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases 310.51 Driver To Kill Off The Series
NVIDIA has announced the release of their 310.51 "certified" proprietary graphics driver for Linux, Solaris, and BSD operating systems...
What separates this from 319? I haven't used the nvidia proprietary drivers in a couple years so I'm a little out of the loop with this one.
The latest driver in the ubuntu 12.04 LTS repository is 310.14, hope this gets updated to the final version.
Which cards will get pushed off into legacy land?
Or card/chip families, etc
None. Everything that supports 310 also supports 319.

//You could upgrade everything else, but if you don't want to, go to your software repositories and uncheck the ppa.

I haven't done that because 310 works.

How do they come up with this naming convention?

Hum, if they are at 319 now, does it mean that now they will be forced to make major changes for the next driver?
