NVIDIA 1.0-8168 Drivers Leaked

Filed under

After months of speculations, and over a year of waiting for Linux SLI support, the NVIDIA 1.0-8XXX series have began to emerge in the hands of die-hard Linux users and although these drivers are only preliminary, they certainly have gamers on their heels. Any day now, NVIDIA has due out their official Rel80 Linux drivers, which will support many wonderful features including Scalable Link Interface (SLI), but our friends over at ASUS seem to have accidentally leaked the BETA 1.0-8168 drivers at their support center. As this was most likely attributed to human error, the download source has since been taken down but if you are serious about acquiring these drivers for yourself, you can find mirrors from Linux users raging on forums about this leaked piece of software. We would like to point out that the drivers that have surfaced are preliminary, were built on October 20, 2005, and will not be the final release candidate. These drivers were initially anticipated to be released in October, as we had shared several times before in previous articles, but obviously, this deadline has since passed. Our last communication with NVIDIA yielded an early November launch and we are suspecting these drivers will finally be made available within the next week.

Although we will save all of our benchmarking results and SLI guides for the official release of the NVIDIA Linux 1.0-8XXX drivers, what we have for you today are some initial features with these ASUS-leaked 1.0-8168 drivers.
