NVIDIA 2012 Linux Graphics Driver Year-In-Review


After yesterday publishing the 2012 AMD Catalyst Driver Year-In-Review, here is the recap of the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver progress made in 2012.

This year the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver made some significant performance improvements, continues to work very well for video acceleration with VDPAU, is still supporting new hardware on launch-day, and various new features continue to be introduced. This year NVIDIA also dropped some older hardware support, but they continue to have well-maintained legacy drivers plus the open-source Nouveau driver as another option.
