Release highlights since 346.22:
- Added support for the following GPUs:
- GeForce 800A
- GeForce 800M
- Updated the NVIDIA X driver to reject frame packed interlaced HDMI 3D modes during mode validation. These modes were being validated by the driver, despite never having been supported.
- Fixed a bug that prevented the console from being restored after forcefully terminating X, on some GPUs with multiple DisplayPort monitors attached. This bug also subsequently prevented X from being started following the failed console restoration.
- Updated the version of libvdpau shipped with the driver to 0.9. This version honors the VDPAU_DRIVER_PATH environment variable and fixes a race condition if multiple threads call VdpDeviceCreateX11 simultaneously. See

for more information.
Please note that users are encouraged to use their distribution’s libvdpau packages rather than relying on the one shipped with the NVIDIA graphics driver.
- Fixed a bug that caused the ACPI hotkey mask to be set incorrectly on some laptops even when the EnableACPIHotkeys option is disabled.
- Disabled the EnableACPIHotkeys option by default. This option is now considered deprecated and will be removed in a future driver release. On modern Linux systems, display change hotkey events are delivered to the desktop environment as key press events, and the desktop environment handles the display change by issuing requests through the X Resize and Rotate extension (RandR).
- Fixed a bug that caused the screen image to be shifted when screen transformations (such as rotations or reflections) were enabled on a G-SYNC display attached to a Kepler-based GPU.
