Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD driver 470.57.02 [production branch release]

Release highlights since 470.42.01:

  • Added support for the following GPUs:

    • NVIDIA A100 80GB PCIe
    • NVIDIA A16
    • NVIDIA PG506-243
    • NVIDIA PG506-242
    • NVIDIA RTX A2000
    • NVIDIA T4G
  • Updated the nvidia-settings command line interface to confirm successful assignment of string attributes. This makes the behavior more consistent with other types of attribute assignments.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause flickering in Blender and Steam when running on Xwayland.

  • Fixed a bug that caused GTK+3 applications using the GtkGLArea class to crash when running on Xwayland.

  • Added a workaround for DOOM Eternal, which avoids an application bug where Vulkan swapchain recreation events are not properly handled. On desktops like GNOME where the window is initially redirected to the compositor, this may prevent the game from flipping (and thus enabling G-SYNC).

  • Added a workaround for Far Cry 5 when run through DXVK, which avoids a shader race condition bug that was previously exposed by new compiler optimizations.
