    “City Bus Simulator”?

    How is that a “top new gaming title”?

    Same here, we want a linux release, the latest driver is 190.53 if my memory doesn’t fail ..

    and the latest driver with OpenCL support is 190.29 …

    they don’t seem to be using the same codebase for both platform drivers as they claimed xD

    One of my main reasons to buy nvidia is the good quality drivers on this platform =(
