Nvidia 375.20 stable driver released, increases OpenGL shader cache size and more

Posted by , | Views: 21,800
The latest Nvidia driver 375.20 is now available. The interesting change is that it increases the OpenGL shader cache size, which may help with games like Deus Ex Mankind Divided on Linux.

One of the issues Deus Ex has, is that it will often re-cache everything when you load it up (that long loading time when you first open it), this driver should hopefully be a fix for that. I can't test it yet myself, as I am waiting for the PPA to be updated.

On top of that it also adds in support for newer GPU models, adds in support for xorg 1.19 and more. It's nice to see Nvidia so quick to ready their drivers for newer versions of xorg.

First time only? it's doing it almost all times i start the game, rare time don't. And it take a really long while. For example dying light only did it first time i ran it, and when it updated. But Deus ex is doing it almost 50% the times i start it. Is it normal?

No it's not normal, as mentioned this driver might help fix it.

And that's why their cards are the logical choice for Linux, FOSS ideology/ideals notwithstanding.

Just checked my cache folder and it seems it has topped the 64mb many moons ago, 128mb feels a bit shallow still but better than nothing so Nvidia has my thanks. :-)
