NVIDIA has released the 375.82 and 384.59 drivers

Posted by , | Views: 10,883
NVIDIA have released two driver updates recently, 375.82 and 384.59 both with plenty of fixes and new GPU support.

The 384.59 driver carries forward work done in the earlier beta driver release at the end of last month and adds in these additional fixes:
  • Fixed a bug that prevented changes to stereo eye assignment from getting applied from the nvidia-settings control panel.
  • Fixed a bug that caused S4 suspend (also known as "hibernate") to hang during suspend when SLI was enabled.
  • Fixed a bug where devices would not be properly enumerated by the Vulkan driver. See the "Known Issues" section of the README for more details.
  • Fix a bug with GLX_EXT_buffer_age where incorrect buffer age values would be reported for SLI AFR configurations. In such configurations buffer age may now be greater than 3, the previous maximum buffer age.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause hanging and Xids when performing RandR transforms with Overlay and SLI enabled.
  • Extended the information reported by the NVIDIA Xinerama X extension to report PRIME displays in addition to directly-connected displays.
  • Fixed a bug that caused HDMI audio devices to appear or disappear inconsistently when HDMI devices were hotplugged or unplugged.

See the changelog forum topic here.

Then there's the 375.82 driver release for those sticking with it, which brings in more of the same.

I personally tend to wait a while before updating my GPU driver to see if anyone sees any more issues, although I am now quite behind on the 381.22 driver, now looks to be a good time to update. If you're on Ubuntu you can use this PPA.

It's usually worthwhile updating, especially since newer Feral ports tend to need later drivers. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Well, you should upgrade anyway as these releases fix critical security issues including privilege escalation. This is probably the most important bit of information here but the article is sadly missing it.

I haven't noticed any overheating problems with the 384 drivers yet, I did get a fair bit of heat with the 375 drivers.
