Default 1.0.6106 6800 GT support


I am thinking about buying a Geforce FX 6800 GT Card, and I mainly use Linux. So I looked in the README of the current driver whether the 6800GT is supported, but I didn't see it anywhere.
However I saw people are suggesting the 6800GT over the ATi X800 because it shall have `better linux support`.

So, DOES the 1.0.6106-driver support the 6800GT?
OR do you get inofficial linux drivers shipped together with your 6800GTs?

* Added support for GeForce 6800 series of GPUs
* Added support for PCI-Express
* Added support for GLSL (OpenGL Shading Language).
* Added support for GL_EXT_pixel_buffer_object.
* Fixed problem that prevented 32-bit kernel driver from running on certain AMD64 CPUs.
* Added support for ACPI
* Added support for 4kstack kernels.
* Added configuration utility "nvidia-settings". For details, see the user guide
* Added a shell script "nvidia-bug-report.sh" that gathers system configuration information into a log file; the resulting log file (nvidia-bug-report.log) should be included when reporting bugs to NVIDIA.
* Added a new Xv adaptor on GeForce4 and GeForce FX which uses the 3D engine to do Xv PutImage requests.
* View the README (Text Version) for more information on this release.

I am just going to say it is supported since it says that in the release highlights. If you are wondering if its supported because it just says 6800's, the gt is a lower clocked 6800 ultra.

Talking Re: 1.0.6106 6800 GT support

Ahhh... ok.
I just wanted to assure me, because the last time I bought a graphics card I had to wait 3 months for the detonator to support it ( and as I always had had good experience with the nVidia linux drivers at TNT2-times, I didn't even look whether it is supported and expected it ).

So thanks again
