Release Highlights

  • Added support for the following GPU:
      GeForce GTX 1660
      GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
      GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q Design
      GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q Design
  • Fixed a bug that would occasionally cause visual corruption on some Vulkan titles. This bug was particularly prevalent on DXVK titles.
  • Fixed a bug that caused vkCmdPushConstants to generate Xid 13 messages when executed with VK_SHADER_STAGE_ALL on a compute queue.
  • Added initial support for G-SYNC Compatible monitors.See the README for details.
  • Added support for stereo presentation in Vulkan.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause OpenGL applications to crash after repeated VT-switches.
  • Fixed a bug that could sometimes prevent PRIME displays from being selected in the display settings page of nvidia-settings.
  • NVIDIA Video Codec SDK 9.0

    A new release of the Video Codec SDK will be available in Q1 2019. For more information and early access sign-up, refer to https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-video-codec-sdk

    The main features available in this release are listed below:
    o Support for Turing NVENC/NVDEC.
    o The NVDECODE API (also known as the NVCUVID API) has been updated to support YUV 4:4:4 decoding for HEVC on Turing GPUs.
    o NvEncodeAPI has been updated to support HEVC B-frames on Turing GPUs.
    o NvEncodeAPI adds the capability to output the encoded bitstream, and motion vectors from motion estimation-only mode, to video memory. This avoids the overhead of copying the output from system to video memory for processing pipelines operating directly on video memory.
    o NvEncodeAPI now accepts CUarrays as input buffers. The SDK contains a sample application to demonstrate how to feed a Vulkan image to NVENC using the Vulkan-CUDA interop.
  • Added NVIDIA optical flow support.

    A new library libnvidia-opticalflow.so is included in the driver package. The NVIDIA optical flow library can be used for hardware-accelerated computation of optical flow vectors and stereo disparity values. The API header files, sample applications and documentation will be available in a separate Optical Flow SDK package in Q1 2019.

    For more information and early access sign-up, refer to https://developer.nvidia.com/opticalflow-sdk
  • Removed libnvidia-wfb.so from the driver package.This module was only used on X servers that did not provide their own implementation of libwfb, and all X.Org xserver versions now supported by the driver do so.
  • Updated the VDPAU driver to reject decoding to YUV 4:2:2 video surfaces.The NVIDIA VDPAU driver always produces YUV 4:2:0 content.Previously, the VDPAU driver implicitly converted a YUV 4:2:2 video surface to YUV 4:2:0 during decode.Now, the VDPAU driver will fail the decode request.
  • Optimized nvidia-installer to only run depmod(1) once when installing, rather than twice (once during the uninstall phase and again when installing new kernel modules).
  • Removed the NVreg_UseThreadedInterrupts kernel module parameter from nvidia.ko. This removes the ability to forcibly fall back to an older mechanism (tasklets) for running the bottom-half interrupt handler. Instead, threaded IRQs (the default since 367.44) are always used.
  • Fixed a bug where destroying a direct-to-display swapchain could crash Vulkan applications.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Vulkan applications from using the VK_EXT_display_control extension on a display that is driven by X.
  • Improved nvidia-bug-report.sh to grab the output of the `vulkaninfo` command when it is available.
  • Fixed build failures which resulted in errors like "implicit declaration of function drm_...", when building the NVIDIA DRM kernel module for Linux kernel 5.0 release candidates.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent nvidia-xconfig from disabling the X Composite extension on version 1.20 of the X.org X server.
  • Fixed a build failure, "too many arguments to function 'get_user_pages'", when building the NVIDIA kernel module for Linux kernel v4.4.168.
  • Fixed a build failure, "implicit declaration of function do_gettimeofday", when building the NVIDIA kernel module for Linux kernel 5.0 release candidates.

Additional Information

Known issue:

Vulkan with flipping enabled on Quadro cards can lead to graphic corruption.
If you think you have run into it you can do either of the following as a workaround:

- Disable flipping in nvidia-settings (uncheck "Allow Flipping" in the "OpenGL Settings" panel)
- Disable UBB (run 'nvidia-xconfig --no-ubb')
- Use a composited desktop

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_64-418.43.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.
