Disabled frame rate limiting for configurations without active displays when HardDPMS is enabled.
Restricted the maximum number of GPU Screens to one GPU Screen per GPU device, to prevent X from crashing when more than one GPU Screen is configured for a single GPU device.
Fixed a bug that could cause the X server to crash while exiting DPMS with HardDPMS enabled.
Added a default filename when saving the Display Configuration file in nvidia-settings if an existing configuration file is not detected.
Added support for audio over DisplayPort Multi-Stream. This support requires Linux kernel version 5.5 or newer.
Updated the NVIDIA driver to allow NVIDIA High Definition Audio (HDA) controllers to respond to display hotplug events while the HDA is runtime-suspended.
Fixed a bug that caused DXVK titles to endlessly loop during shader compilation if no OpSource instruction was present.
Add PRIME Synchronization support for Linux kernel 5.4 and newer.
Vulkan with flipping enabled on Quadro cards can lead to graphic corruption.
If you think you have run into it you can do either of the following as a workaround:
- - Disable flipping in nvidia-settings (uncheck "Allow Flipping" in the "OpenGL Settings" panel)
- Disable UBB (run 'nvidia-xconfig --no-ubb')
- Use a composited desktop
Note that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than NVIDIA's official package.
Also note that SuSE users should read the SuSE NVIDIA Installer HOWTO before downloading the driver.
Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.59.run
One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig
Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to indicate which GPUs are supported by a particular driver version. Some designs incorporating supported GPUs may not be compatible with the NVIDIA Linux driver: in particular, notebook and all-in-one desktop designs with switchable (hybrid) or Optimus graphics will not work if means to disable the integrated graphics in hardware are not available. Hardware designs will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please consult with a system's manufacturer to determine whether that particular system is compatible.
