Nvidia Geforce Drivers Release Announcement thread

To add aswell, the GTX600 series got a driver update as late as 31st of january this year (2022). Quite amazing considering that gpu line debuted early 2012, thats about a 10 year driver support, officially supported for MS's new Windows 11.
And even after driver updates stop, it doesnt make the GPU irrelevant by any means, you can still play all your old games ofcourse, even newer ones (with performance impact ofcourse), just without NV's (and AMD's) optimizations. Then again, say a GTX680 wont be running CP2077 all that well (or any +2022 next gen game) so driver updates become quite meaningless anyway.

Dang, I can't edit posts after some time...nevermind
Just the kernel module, totally crippled without both the firmware and user space half blob. Also not even remotely any plans to to send to into kernel upstream, and the usual CLA pill.

That's just the bare minimum which was inevitable to get a ahead of serious concerns that the kernel blob might pose a severe security risk after the source had already been leaked.

It's still *that* type of code which won't have any chance to make it into the official kernel sources.

And did it really open up much?... Actually no. The former kernel driver internal magic which defines which features a GPU effectively even exposes has simply been offloaded to a GPU side co-processor since Turing, so the good old criple-by-firmware-strategy still applies.

Btw anyone know how to make Nvidia gpu scaling works 1:1?

So for example I'm rendering a game on 1920x1080. So it will be centered with black bars around it on my 3840x2160 display

Disable scaling? You may need to do this in your display settings too though.
Yep, straight from NVIDIA:
No scaling - This setting leaves the display image in its original size and centers it on your screen resulting in a small though crisp image. A black border may appear around the display image.

Obviously this requires that monitor doesn't go scaling on its own, too
