Default Geforce GT 520MX on Linux

Hi all,
does anyone know if Nvidia will release a Linux driver for the 520MX??
I haven't found any compatible driver yet and my screen resolution is really ridiculous..

is the model number a secret or something?

If it has Optimus and you can't select the nVidia card you can't use the GPU with the nVidia drivers because at this time nVidia does not support Optimus under Linux, see the big thread: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=144750
