New Linux nVidia drivers available now

Wednesday, 7th November 2012 00:15 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Graphics driver updates aren’t in our usual style but with the launch of the Steam Linux beta today it seems like a good time to be giving your open-source computer a bit of a spruce up. NVidia has released a new set of R310 drivers for a significant range of products, which it claims can “double the performance and dramatically reduce game loading times for those gaming on the Linux operating system”. The drivers were developed in collaboration with Valve and other Linux-friendly developers, and Doug Lombardi called them “an absolutely unequalled solution for Linux gamers”.

Thanks, Talkar.

    I wonder, if they’re able to sort out PC gaming for Linux, wouldn’t it be relatively easy to get Mac into some kind of decent shape as regards PC gaming? I’m just throwin’ that out there…

    Steam is already available for Mac and has been for some time.

    See what’s happening here? Valve decides to change something, to do something awesome and nVidia follows through. Nice! :)
