[ Thanks to Michael Larabel for this link. ]

"The release highlights for the 180.16 driver release mention support for the following GPUs being added: Quadro FX 2700M, GeForce 9400M G, GeForce 9800GT, GeForce 8200M G, GeForce Go 7700, GeForce 9800M GTX, GeForce 9800M GT, GeForce 9800M GS, GeForce 9500GT, GeForce 9700M GT, and GeForce 9650M GT. However, support for some of these GPUs has actually been in the driver for quite a while. For example, in early November we were using a Sparkle GeForce 9500GT 1GB with the 177.80 Linux driver and this graphics card has been available since July. Either the NVIDIA Linux engineers had too much Eggnog to drink at their Christmas party or it's really just to reflect newer versions of some select GPU cores"
