NVIDIA's Mark Kilgard presented at SIGGRAPH 2014 in Vancouver to cover the changes found in the just-released OpenGL 4.5 specification. He also went over some of NVIDIA's Linux driver changes.
While we're incredibly infatuated right now with NVIDIA's Tegra K1 that offers quad-core Cortex-A15 performance with Kepler-class graphics, the 64-bit Tegra K1 should be even better.
While the OpenGL 4.5 specification is fresh off the press and we haven't even seen the Khronos SIGGRAPH announcement yet, NVIDIA has already made public their OpenGL 4.5 beta drivers for Linux and Windows.
NVIDIA today has announced their first beta Linux/Solaris/FreeBSD driver release in the 343.xx driver series. As expected, this release drops pre-Fermi hardware support from the Linux mainline driver code-base.
NVIDIA is working on adding HEVC/H.265 video decoding support to VDPAU.
NVIDIA announced this morning their new Shield Tablet and Shield Controller. The new Shield Tablet is a $299 Android tablet that's great for gaming and is mighty powerful with using the Tegra K1 SoC.
For those still out there running a GeForce 6 or 7 series graphics card, NVIDIA has updated its legacy proprietary 304.xx Unix graphics driver for Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris systems.
Succeeding last month's NVIDIA 340.17 Linux driver beta is now the first official release in the 340.xx driver series for Linux / Solaris / BSD. The NVIDIA 340.24 driver was released this morning with new features but is heavier on the fixing side.
NVIDIA has today released ther 331.89 Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD graphics drivers within their long-lived 331.xx graphics driver branch.
NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner has announced the release of libvdpau 0.8 as the library for the VIdeo Decode and Presentation API for Unix.
The first beta driver in NVIDIA's forthcoming "Release 340" driver series for blob-using Linux users is now available.
NVIDIA released their 337.25 Linux graphics driver beta this Friday afternoon to end out their work month.
NVIDIA has made another open-source contribution today by releasing a small set of patches needed to adjust the Nouveau Gallium3D driver to support their "GK20A" graphics.
NVIDIA has released a new proprietary Linux graphics driver within its 331 "long-lived branch" series.
NVIDIA launched their GeForce GTX 750 graphics cards back in February as their first products based upon their new Maxwell architecture. Sadly those GPUs didn't support any H.265 or VP9 acceleration, but at least it looks like the former will be supported by the next round of Maxwell GPUs.
After NVIDIA's 337 Linux driver series has already been in beta with the major new feature being Fermi/Kepler/Maxwell overclocking support, the latest beta has now been released.
NVIDIA has published the third revision of their open-source Nouveau kernel DRM driver patches for supporting the "GK20A" Kepler graphics of their Tegra K1 SoC.
In continuation of the Trying Out The Jetson TK1, NVIDIA's High-End Tegra K1 Board and Benchmarks Of The NVIDIA Tegra K1 and Its Hotness articles, here's some results provided by the community compared to my early NVIDIA Jetson TK1 board with Tegra K1 SoC.
Here's our first public benchmarks of the NVIDIA Jetson TK1 ARM development board powered by the Tegra K1 SoC with quad-core+1 Cortex-A15 and NVIDIA Kepler GPU. There's also some thermal metrics for those concerned about the active-cooling on this development board.
For those lucky enough to already have their Jetson TK1 ARM development boards shipped out by NVIDIA, here's a few tips to get better setup within the default Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Linux environment.
NVIDIA's very interesting Jetson TK1 ARM development board is now shipping! This is the interesting ARM development board that's priced sub-$200 and powered by the Tegra K1 that has a Kepler GPU.
Last month NVIDIA announced a really exciting ARM development board based around their Tegra K1 ARM SoC called the Jetson TK1. This high-end ARM board was supposed to begin shipping this week, but it looks like that might be in question.
It looks like NVIDIA is finally preparing to support OpenCL 1.2 within their NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
We've been talking about NVIDIA's work on CUDA 6 since last November but today the sixth generation Compute Unified Device Architecture has finally been officially released.
With this week's NVIDIA 337.12 Beta driver release that was exciting for bringing overclocking support for new GPUs and other features, it also looks like NVIDIA developers are working on G-SYNC Linux support.
With this morning's release of the NVIDIA 337.12 Beta Linux driver there is finally GPU overclocking support for the NVIDIA "Fermi" GPUs and newer, a.k.a. the GeForce 400 series and newer. This long-awaited overclocking support, however, isn't setup the same as when overclocking older GeForce GPUs with the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
This past weekend I wrote about NVIDIA planning to release a huge Linux driver update that would finally bring overclocking support under Linux to GeForce 400/500/600/700 series hardware. That milestone has now been realized with the 337.12 Beta driver release and besides overclocking it has a bunch of other features.
At long last NVIDIA is expected to release a new binary Linux driver tomorrow that will support GPU overclocking for the GeForce 400 series hardware and newer (Fermi, Kepler, and Maxwell, inclusive). This first NVIDIA 337 series Linux driver release will also bring other new features.
In late March NVIDIA unveiled the Tegra K1 Jetson development board as a very exciting quad-core Cortex-A15 with NVIDIA's fifth companion core while also leveraging a Kepler GPU with 192 CUDA cores, Serial ATA support, USB 3.0 support, and other features. This exciting ARM development board will begin shipping later this month for less than $200 USD.
While their proprietary Linux graphics driver right now only supports X11-based environments, NVIDIA has talked in the past about their plans to eventually support Wayland, and they've reaffirmed their intentions this week to supporting Wayland by their closed-source Linux GPU driver.
