New NVIDIA Driver ‘Doubles Performance’ on Linux

The latest NVidia GeForce driver, released yesterday, gives Linux users 'double the performance' and 'dramatically reduces game loading times', according to the company's press release.

Having been in development for almost a year, the GeForce R310 driver has been designed to ‘showcase the enormous potential of the world’s biggest open-source operating system’.

NVIDIA collaborated with Valve and other games developers in designing the driver, having been ‘thoroughly tested’ with the Steam for Linux beta.

Users with GeForce GTX 600 series GPUs, as well as those with certain previous generation GeForce GPUs, will benefit from using the new drivers.
