Nvidia Releases Linux and BSD Graphics Drivers with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Support

Nvidia released new long-lived graphics drivers for GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris systems with support for new GPUs, as well as various other improvements and bug fixes.

The Nvidia 418.43 display driver is available now and comes with support for three new Nvidia GPUs, including the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q Design, and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q Design. Owners of these GPUs will need to upgrade to the Nvidia 418.43 driver to use them on GNU/Linux or FreeBSD systems (Solaris not supported).

Apart from the new GPU support, the Nvidia 418.43 graphics driver adds initial support for G-SYNC compatible displays, support for Nvidia optical flow, as well as support for stereo presentation in the Vulkan driver. Additionally, the new display driver ships with the Nvidia Video Codec SDK 9.0, which adds support for Turing NVENC/NVDEC and several NvEncodeAPI improvements.OpenGL, DXVK, and PRIME improvementsThe Nvidia 418.43 display driver also addresses a few important issues reported by users from previous versions, including a bug causing visual corruption on certain Vulkan/DXVK games, a bug causing OpenGL apps to crash after repeated VT-switches, and a bug preventing PRIME displays from being selected in nvidia-settings' Display Settings page.

It also fixes a bug that may cause the vkCmdPushConstants function to generate Xid 13 messages when it is executed with the VK_SHADER_STAGE_ALL environment variable on a compute queue. The VDPAU driver was updated as well in this release, which removes the libnvidia-wfb.so library and the NVreg_UseThreadedInterrupts kernel module parameter from nvidia.ko.

Better support for the latest X.Org Server 1.20 display server and Linux kernel 4.4.168, as well as initial support for the upcoming Linux 5.0 kernel series are also present in the Nvidia 418.43 graphics driver, which you can download right now for GNU/LinuxFreeBSD, and Solaris64-bit systems from our free software portal. This is a recommended update for all Nvidia users.
