The graphics card manufacturer NVIDIA has released a new beta version 319.12 of its graphics driver. The new version includes a lot of new features and improvements. Probably the biggest feature is the initial support of the Optimus technology, which allows dynamic switching between a mobile NVIDIA graphics card and an integrated graphics chip, like one from Intel.
NVIDIA today announced the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® drivers -- R310 -- double the performance(1) and dramatically reduce game loading times for those gaming on the Linux operating system.
The result of almost a year of development by NVIDIA, Valve and other game developers, the new GeForce R310 drivers are designed to give GeForce customers the best possible Linux-based PC gaming experience -- and showcase the enormous potential of the world's biggest open-source operating system.
