NVIDIA 1.0-8183 Display Drivers

Filed under
Software

When continuing our investigation for the "HP: The SLI Godfather?" article, it was found that Hewlett-Packard is hosting a NVIDIA Linux display driver that is numbered 1.0-8183. The interesting part about this is that the latest drivers available from NVIDIA's official site are 1.0-8178, which was released toward the end of last year. If you had read our other related articles, you will also know that we have been testing the 1.0-8751 Beta display drivers for most of this month now, and NVIDIA is not expected to release a new set until early April. What is inside the drivers that are entitled 8183 Revision 1? What are the details involved? We have a small report today on these findings, as well as a download.

When navigating to the driver and software section of Hewlett-Packard's website for the xw9300 (the HP workstation discussed in our previous article) under the NVIDIA graphics section we had found drivers entitled -- 8183 Rev. 1 27 Feb 2006, 8174 Rev. 1 7 Dec 2005, and 7676 Rev. 1 7 Nov 2005. Of course, from this list the driver that has not been officially released is 8183, or formally known as 1.0-8183. Seperate pages are available for both x86 and x86_64 software.

In addition, this release fixes the frame buffer corruption issue that had occurred in certain SLI modes where the screen would be filled with horizontal blocked lines.
