NVIDIA delivers massive performance boost to Linux gaming

If you’re one of those people who think that Linux is the ideal OS for your gaming needs, NVIDIA has announced the latest drivers for the Linux OS—the R310 drivers, which will drastically reduce load times for those who use Linux to play their games.

This is the result of almost a year of development by NVIDIA in conjunction with Valve and other game developers, and were thoroughly tested with Steam for Linux. These drivers are compatible with the GeForce 600 series as well as older models such as the GeForce 8800 GT.

“With this release, NVIDIA has managed to increase the overall gaming performance under Linux,” said Doug Lombardi, vice president of marketing at Valve. “NVIDIA took an unquestioned leadership position developing R310 drivers with us and other studios to provide an absolutely unequalled solution for Linux gamers.”
