Driver Summary
nVIDIA GeForce6/GeForce7/GeForce6/GeForce7/GeForce8/GeForce9/GeForce 100/GeForce 200/GeForce 300/GeForce 400 Series Driver 260.19.12 Linux 32-bit.

Release Highlights:

  • Added support for the following GPUs: GeForce GTS 450, GeForce GTX 460M, GeForce GT 415M, GeForce GT 425M, GeForce GT 420M, GeForce GT 435M, Quadro 2000, Quadro 600.
  • ?Stopped installing OpenGL, VDPAU, CUDA, and OpenCL header files with the driver.
  • Fixed the CustomEDID X configuration option so that it can handle EDID files from Linux procfs; e.g., /proc/acpi/video/IGPU/LCD0/EDID.
  • Fixed an interaction problem with a change in X server behavior that caused slow text rendering on X.Org xserver 1.9.
  • Enhanced VDPAU to support interop with CUDA and OpenGL when Xinerama is active.
  • Fixed a bug in VDPAU that prevented temporal-spatial de-interlacing from operating when temporal de-interlacing was not also enabled.
  • Added support for configuring the dithering depth used when driving a flat panel with a GeForce 8 family or Quadro 4600/5600 or newer GPU. See the "Dithering Controls" in the Flat Panel page in nvidia-settings.
  • Added support for the nvcuvid API.
  • Fixed a bug in VDPAU that could cause a "display preemption" when toggling MPlayer to full-screen the first time.
  • Added OpenGL 4.1 support for Quadro Fermi, GeForce GTX 4xx, and later GPUs.
  • Enhanced VDPAU to fully support Xinerama.
  • Fixed a bug in the X driver that prevented operation of Xinerama when using multiple NVIDIA GPUs from different major hardware generations on X with ABI 4 or greater.
  • Fixed a bug in the OpenGL driver's Xinerama support.
  • Added GPU "Processor Clock" reporting to the nvidia-settings PowerMizer page.
  • Implemented support for SLI Mosaic Mode on Quadro FX 5800 and Quadro Fermi and newer Quadro GPUs.
  • Enhanced the VDPAU overlay-based presentation queue to allow it to be used when SLI is active, and in some cases when the X composite extension is enabled. See the README for further details.
  • Added support for configuring the dithering mode used when driving a flat panel with a GeForce 8 family or Quadro 4600/5600 or newer GPU.See the "Dithering Controls" in the Flat Panel page in nvidia-settings.
  • Added unofficial GLX protocol support (i.e., for GLX indirect rendering) for the following OpenGL extensions: GL_EXT_texture_integer, GL_ARB_stencil_two_side, GL_EXT_transform_feedback2, GL_NV_transform_feedback2, GL_NV_conditional_render.
  • Added GLX protocol support (i.e., for GLX indirect rendering) for the following OpenGL extensions: GL_NV_point_sprite, GL_EXT_stencil_two_side, GL_EXT_point_parameters, GL_ARB_transpose_matrix, GL_EXT_framebuffer_blit, GL_EXT_framebuffer_multisample.
  • GLX protocol for the following OpenGL extension is promoted from unofficial GLX ptotocol to ARB approved GLX protocol: GL_EXT_geometry_shader4, GL_ARB_shader_objects, GL_ARB_vertex_shader, GL_ARB_fragment_shader.
  • Added support for configuring individual displays as any eye in passive stereo mode "4" when using TwinView or SLI Mosaic through extensions to the MetaMode syntax.
  • Added ColorSpace and ColorRange features for HDMI. These give the ability to output YUV over HDMI and select full/reduced color range on RGB over HDMI. ColorSpace and ColorRange are X Configuration options and can be changed dynamically through nvidia-settings.
