Additional information
  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX 780
  • Fixed a regression that could cause X to crash when querying GPU information through NV-CONTROL on multi-GPU systems where some GPUs failed to be initialized for X.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause X to crash when using Vertex Buffer Objects (VBOs) with indirect rendering.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented some drop-down menus in nvidia-settings from working correctly when using older versions of GTK+.
  • Fixed RandR panning reporting when the current MetaMode is smaller than the X screen.
  • Fixed a regression that caused nvidia-installer to attempt post-processing of non-installed files.
  • Added the "ForceCompositionPipeline" and "ForceFullCompositionPipeline" MetaMode options. See the README for details.
  • Added support for HDMI 4K resolutions. Using a 4K resolution with an HDMI display requires a Kepler or later GPU.
  • Added support in VDPAU for 4k resolution MPEG-1/2 and H.264 video decoding, up to 4032x4048 for MPEG-1/2 and 4032x4080 for H.264, and up to 65536 macroblocks for both.

Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, tar xzf NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86_64-319.23.tar.gz && cd NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86_64-319.23 & make install

Then, edit your X configuration file so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used; this can normally be done by running 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.
