Default Is GTX 275 supported by the linux driver ?

The EVGA gtx 275s are available on Newegg now. I noticed the nvidia download site will say there is no supported linux driver if you try to download specifying gtx 275.

So my question, if I buy it, will it work in linux ?

It should work, at least with 185.19.

Well, not that I have any reliable insider knowledge but I would suspect that the GTX 275 does work even though the current nvidia driver might fail to recognize it.
When I first started using my 9800 GT it showed up as "Unknown NVIDIA GPU" but I was still able to use it just fine.

But hopefully you'll be able to get a more reliable answer from someone else around here.
Edit: Doh, too slow.

@ldesnogu: yes, 185.18.xx NVIDIA Linux graphics driver releases are more recent than the 185.19 BETA (see earlier threads on this topic).

For people looking for more information, I installed 185.18.10 beta drivers on my machine (Core i7 920, ASUS P6T Deluxe v2, Gainward GTX 275) using the pkg2 script. If I'm to believe glxgears, it works since I get >20k FPS (instead of 500 I got with the nouveau driver that came with Fedora 11 preview).

AaronP, thanks for confirming the beta drivers are supporting the GTX 275.

Default Re: Is GTX 275 supported by the linux driver ?

Hi!

I have a GTX 275 and now I have to learn using linux (Suse 11.1 to be specific). But I saw that the nvidia page does not offer linux drivers for gtx 275. Now I read that the recent drivers are working on them, but I have no Idea how to install them, because adding nvidia.com to the software repository does not work.

so, could you please give me a guide on how to install this driver?
thx.

@Arp: please see e.g. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show....php?p=2016740, ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...E/part-01.html and http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=72490. If distribution specific driver packages are available for 185.18.xx, it is recommended that you use them, instead.

The maintainer of the openSUSE RPM's won't add the GTX 275 ID into his packages because it's not stated as being supported in any nvidia documentation.
