Now that I'm back in the United States, I'm beginning to upload the Phoronix recordings of the X.Org development talks that happened this past weekend in Brussels at FOSDEM 2013. Here's the video of the NVIDIA Open Tegra talk that covers the ongoing work for creating an open-source graphics driver for NVIDIA's increasingly popular ARM SoCs.
An update on the open-source NVIDIA Tegra graphics driver was shared this weekend in Brussels. The Tegra DRM driver was merged and there's more features to be implemented in succeeding releases. Unfortunately, open-source 3D support for NVIDIA's ARM hardware isn't yet on the radar.
NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner released version 0.6 of the libvdpau open-source library before calling it a week.
For those conservative Linux desktop users not wishing to immediately upgrade to the exciting NVIDIA 313 Linux driver, NVIDIA on Monday morning released the 310.32 official driver. While not as exciting as the new 313 series, this 310.32 update carries many of the same changes.
NVIDIA released the 313.18 Linux graphics driver this morning as the first official/certified (non-beta) driver in their 313.xx driver series. The NVIDIA 313 Linux driver release packs an awesome number of changes.
Aaron Plattner at NVIDIA is still working on the open-source "PRIME Helpers" patches for the Linux kernel. This is work towards ultimately better handling PRIME/DMA-BUF for NVIDIA Optimus Technology on Linux.
At the same time as officially announcing the NVIDIA Tegra 4, the Santa Clara company has also announced an Android-powered open gaming platform in the form of a portable gaming device that uses their latest-generation ARM hardware.
With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) taking place this week in Las Vegas, NVIDIA has officially rolled out their next-generation Tegra 4 ARM platform.
Earlier this week I shared some AMD Catalyst OpenCL benchmarks showing the performance gains made by AMD's proprietary Radeon graphics driver this year in bettering the GPGPU results. In this article is similar testing on the NVIDIA side with their binary driver.
NVIDIA released Linux kernel patches this morning for supporting their next-gen "Tegra 4" SoC under Linux. A few details were revealed within the code commits.
This week the NVIDIA Linux developers released the NVIDIA 313.09 Beta Linux graphics driver. This driver packs in many new features so some early benchmarks of this first 313.xx Linux driver release have already been carried out.
NVIDIA has released their first binary Linux graphics driver beta in the 313.xx series. The NVIDIA 313.09 Beta has bug-fixes plus new features to make for an exciting Linux gaming experience.
NVIDIA is still working on a way to implement buffer-sharing for their closed-source Linux graphics driver.
New details have been shared with Phoronix about the back-story that led to the work on the open-source NVIDIA Tegra DRM graphics driver that will be introduced in the Linux 3.8 kernel.
NVIDIA has published initial patches for providing open-source 2D hardware acceleration support on their NVIDIA Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 SoCs. This work is based upon the experimental open-source Direct Rendering Manager driver to be merged into the Linux 3.8 kernel.
With the Linux 3.8 kernel in early 2013 there is going to be an open-source NVIDIA Tegra 2 DRM driver. NVIDIA is currently working out initial patches for applying 2D acceleration atop this mainline Linux kernel driver.
NVIDIA has quietly released new versions of its Linux 4 Tegra software platform that's currently targeting their "Cardhu" and "Ventana" platforms.
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.
Back in August a basic DRM driver for the NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics core appeared but wasn't merged into the Linux kernel. The Tegra DRM driver still hasn't been merged to this day, but it might hit staging with the Linux 3.8 kernel.
The NVIDIA 304.64 Linux graphics driver was released today with support for new graphics cards, address performance issues related to recent Linux kernels, and provide other fixes for those relying upon this closed-source driver.
NVIDIA has issued a stable Linux graphics driver update in the 304.xx series to address outstanding bugs.
NVIDIA pushed out their first Linux graphics driver beta in the 310.xx series on Monday. The NVIDIA 310.14 driver supports OpenGL 4.3, brings threaded OpenGL performance optimizations, and many other new features. The NVIDIA 310.14 Beta for Linux is an exciting release!
NVIDIA released CUDA 5.0 on Monday morning and it boasts many new features for this popular GPGPU environment.
Going back to the beginning of this year there's been talk of NVIDIA looking at Optimus support for Linux and in August they confirmed they were working on NVIDIA Optimus Linux support. As part of their Optimus Linux implementation they want to use DMA-BUF for the multi-GPU interactions just like the open-source drivers, so that they can all work together. However, kernel developers continue to reject this notion.
NVIDIA has released an updated proprietary Linux graphics driver.
Back in 2010 NVIDIA said they have no plans to support Wayland, but is that still the case?
NVIDIA will be releasing 2D (and potentially 3D) documentation concerning their ARM Tegra graphics core. "NVIDIA committed to open-source" even read one slide during a presentation at the annual X.Org Developers' Conference.
NVIDIA has unveiled today the lower-cost GeForce 600 "Kepler" graphics cards: the GeForce GTX 650 and GTX 660.
NVIDIA has released a new Linux graphics driver in the 304.xx series, which means the GeForce 6/7 series support is still there, while adding in some new improvements.
NVIDIA has announced today the graphics cards that are no longer supported by their mainline Linux graphics driver going forward but will be moved to a new 304.xx Linux legacy driver branch.
