Default Updates for 180.06

Starting with driver version 180.06, the options described above are enabled by default on GeForce 8 and higher GPUs.

In addition, the PixmapCacheSize X config. option is now deprecated. Instead, there are two new nvidia-settings options: PixmapCache, and PixmapCacheRoundSizeKB. The former can be used to turn the pixmap cache on and off on a given X screen. The latter sets the rounding size for the pixmap cache. The driver will dynamically resize the cache when it needs more space, and this option controls the block size used (in kilobytes). E.g., if PixmapCacheRoundSizeKB is 1024, then the driver will allocate cache space in multiples of a megabyte.
