Release Highlights

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
      GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
      Quadro M520
      TITAN Xp
      Quadro P3000
  • Improved compatibility with recent kernels.
  • Fixed a bug that caused "nvidia-settings --query all" to print many duplicate entries.
  • Fixed a bug that caused applications to crash in some situations when calling glXMakeCurrent while OpenGL threaded optimizations were enabled.

    This frequently occurred when Steam was attempting to make a video appear full-screen.

  • Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU applications to use the blit presentation queue when a previous VDPAU application didn't shut down cleanly.
  • Fixed hangs and crashes that could occur when an OpenGL context is created while the system is out of available memory.
  • Fixed a bug that caused corruption when OpenGL windows were moved or resized.
  • Fixed a bug that caused X screens that use Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none" to be resized to 640x480 when using "xrandr -s" to change the screen configuration.
  • Fixed a kernel crash that occurred when attempting to map large user memory allocations into CUDA.
  • Disabled OpenGL threaded optimizations by default, initially enabled in 378.09, due to various reports of instability.
  • Added support for the following Vulkan extensions:
      VK_EXT_acquire_xlib_display
      VK_EXT_display_control
      VK_EXT_display_surface_counter
      VK_EXT_direct_mode_display
      VK_KHX_external_memory
      VK_KHX_external_memory_fd
      VK_KHX_external_semaphore
      VK_KHX_external_semaphore_fd
    These extensions require a Vulkan loader version >= 1.0.42.
  • Removed the X driver's logo splash screen and the corresponding NoLogo and LogoPath xorg.conf options.
  • Added the "ResamplingMethod" MetaMode option, adding support for bicubic resampling methods when scaling screen transformations are in use.See the README for more details.
  • Fixed a bug that left HDMI and DisplayPort audio muted after a framebuffer console mode was restored. For some displays, this caused the display to remain blank.
  • Fixed a bug that caused audio over DisplayPort to stop working when the monitor was unplugged and plugged back in or awoken from DPMS power-saving mode.
  • Fixed a regression that caused corruption in certain applications, such as window border shadows in Unity, after resuming from suspend.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented PRIME Sync from working on notebooks with GeForce GTX 4xx and 5xx series GPUs.

Supported Products

NVIDIA TITAN Series

NVIDIA TITAN Xp

Additional Information

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_64-381.09.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.

See the README for more detailed instructions.
