NVIDIA Linux 2008 Year in Review

Dec 17, 2008, 09:04 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Michael Larabel for this link. ]

"Like we had done in our AMD yearly recap, we are just looking at the stable driver releases that occurred in 2008. While NVIDIA maintains two legacy branches of their driver for older generations of graphics processors, when it comes to their primary driver there have only a handful of official releases this year. The NVIDIA 171.05 release occurred in January, 171.06 in March, 173.08 in April, and then the 177.82 release in November. There were multiple beta driver releases, however, filling the void between April and November. NVIDIA most recently had introduced the 180.xx driver series, but that's still in beta. With no official release based upon the 180 code-base out at the time of testing, for this article we had opted to use the 180.11 beta release for a brief look."
