Andy “God, I Wish I Was In LA Watching Lakers’ Games” Mecham sent word that NVIDIA released new Linux drivers this morning. The changelog lists:
- nForce 220D/420/420D Integrated GPU support (see products supported list)
- OpenGL® 1.3 with NVIDIA extensions
- Support for accelerated offscreen rendering via SGIX_pbuffer and SGIX_fbconfig extensions
- Improved Viewperf and Quake performance
- Enhanced mobile support
- Improved AMD support
- Performer multi-threaded support
These drivers apparently support the graphics adaptor on motherboards designed around the new nForce chipsets. NVIDIA has also released a script called NVchooser.sh that determines which files you should download if you’re unsure.
You can download them from the new NVIDIA Linux Drivers Page.
