nVidia is most reliable name in providing top-notch display cards and very latest invention is nVidia 256.35. This card has numerous innovative features and some of them are as follows:

  • If Performance Level clock frequencies reported incorrectly in nvidia-settings it fixed a regression in 256.29.
  • Fixed a 3D Vision Stereo bug that caused the stereo glasses to not toggle when the flat panel was not running at its native mode timings.
  • Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to crash when rendering its thermal gauge widget if the range of valid values for the thermal sensor was empty.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented use of high performance PowerMizer levels on systems with certain ACPI configurations.
  • Fixed a bug that caused non-primary Fermi GPUs to fail to initialize framebuffer memory. This caused a variety of symptoms, up to and including system hangs.
  • Improved Thermal Settings reporting in nvidia-settings to accurately reflect hardware configurations with multiple thermal sensors.
