NVIDIA Linux Display Drivers 1.0-9625 Beta

September 22nd, 2006 by micks

If ATI is not exactly your cup of tea and/or you don’t actually believe their drivers will see any kind of radical improvement in the foreseeable future any more than you believe in the eventual success of Lightkey’s world domination plans, you might be interested in the recent release of the first beta of NVIDIA‘s 1.0-9xxx display driver series, namely the 1.0-9625 Linux drivers for x86 (readme) and x86-64 (readme) hardware architectures.

Some of the notable features (many of which were anticipated by Phoronix‘s Michael Larabel in his article on the upcoming 1.0-9xxx driver series) include:

  • Initial support for GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap
  • New “Display Configuration” page in nvidia-settings
  • Support for Quad SLI
  • Support for OpenGL 2.1

    You forgot the greatest part, it fixes that annoying google earth rendering bug. Now I can look at random places just for the heck of it just like everyone else :)

    These new drivers work great for me.
