Two new drivers went out this week with both NVIDIA and AMD getting in on the update action so let's take a look.

First up we have NVIDIA who released the stable 460.67 driver. Quite a small one overall that is mainly bug fixing and so upgrading to it shouldn't be a problem. Here's the full changelog:

  • Fixed a bug where using ray tracing extensions on multi-GPU setups could result in application instability if the GPUs did not match.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented G-SYNC from working properly after a mode switch on Kepler-based GPUs.
  • Fixed a driver installation failure on Linux kernel 5.11 release candidates, where the NVIDIA kernel module failed to build with error "error: implicit declaration of function 'sys_close'".
  • Fixed a bug where vkCreateSwapchain could cause the X Server to crash when an invalid imageFormat was provided.
  • Fixed a driver installation failure on Linux kernel 5.11 release candidates, where the NVIDIA kernel module failed to build with error "fatal error: asm/kmap_types.h: No such file or directory".

Meanwhile over in camp AMD they released their Radeon Software for Linux 20.50 driver. While the majority of AMD users on Linux will be using Mesa (and you should probably stick with it), AMD also offer this which has the AMDGPU All-Open and AMDGPU-Pro Driver which is another small release so here's the changelog:

  • Provide support for the Radeon RX 6700 XT Series of graphics cards
  • Introduce full support for RHEL / CentOS 8.3
  • Introduce preview support for Ubuntu 20.04.2
