  • Updated the nvidia-settings control panel to more accurately reflect the current availability of G-SYNC or G-SYNC compatible display settings.
  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce MX230
    • GeForce MX250
  • Fixed a bug which could sometimes cause Vulkan applications to lock up the GPU when freeing large chunks of memory on systems with PRIME enabled.
  • Updated the driver to restrict use of the GPU performance counters to system administrators by default. The previous more permissive behavior can be restored by setting NVreg_RestrictProfilingToAdminUsers=0 when loading nvidia.ko.
