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”.

AMD has released new drivers, available on its website, in response to complaints of screen tearing, texture and performance issues with the PC version of Rage.
According to the Bethesda Blog, Id is working with Nvidia to push out a similar fix. Users are advised to wait for the Rage-specific update rather than upgrading willy-nilly.
Of particular note are those using drivers updated for the Battlefield 3 beta, which will need to be rolled back.
Rage released yesterday in the US and arrives elsewhere by the end of the week, for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Reviews have been largely delighted.

Phil O’Shaughnessy, Creative’s vice president of corporate communications, has issued a statement on the company’s forums telling a community member to stop the unlicensed use of its technology.
The user in question had initially helped out fellow community members by making Vista drivers which are as of yet unavailable from Creative itself. However, the firm decided to draw a line under the matter when the drivers make its cards work on unsupported hardware.
“In principle we don’t have a problem with you helping users in this way, so long as they understand that any driver packages you supply are not supported by Creative,” said O’Shaughnessy. “Where we do have a problem is when technology and IP owned by Creative or other companies that Creative has licensed from, are made to run on other products for which they are not intended.”
As a consequence, all threads on this matter, including download links to the Vista driver packages, have been deleted.
Full statement after the link.
