NVIDIA R295.33 Graphics Drivers for Linux with GeForce GTX 680 Support


NVIDIA Linux logo

NVIDIA has released a new set of graphics drivers for Linux (32/64-bit). R295.33 adds the support of the newly released GeForce GTX 680 as well as the GeForce GT 620 and the GT 630M. This driver fixes also some bugs related to VDPAU, DisplayPort or OpenGL.
