Which openSUSE graphics driver with GTX 1060?

This is a really basic question which astonishingly is not answered online.

My device is listed as:

NVIDIA Corporation GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 3GB] (rev a1)

The openSUSE Linux repository is at:


The openSUSE support page for NVIDIA drivers is at:


which states to use the x11-video-nvidiaG02, G03 or G04 driver. But which?

A useless link is provided by openSUSE to a Wikipedia page which says nothing about which driver goes with my device.

Choices correlating on the opensuse repository site are (noting, G02 is gone and G05 is added):

x11-video-nvidiaG03-340.107-lp150.12.1.x86_64.rpm 19MB 2018-10-30 22:15
x11-video-nvidiaG04-390.87-lp150.10.2.x86_64.rpm 28MB 2018-10-30 22:15
x11-video-nvidiaG05-410.73-lp150.5.1.x86_64.rpm 50MB 2018-10-30 22:15

I can manually install a driver via command line by Zypper e.g.

zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG04

But, which one?

If I pick the wrong one what happens?

Thank you.

Also, a suggestion to NVIDIA - for Linux support they should at least provide a link to the openSUSE driver site. openSUSE is a major top Linux distro which apparently does not exist in the NVIDIA support universe.

G03 = driver v340 = legacy driver for GT8xxx/9xxx devices
G04 = driver v390 = legacy driver for GTX4xx/5xx Fermi devices
G05 = current driver for current devices

Since you have a current 1060 device, G05 is for you.
Addendum: the G03 driver would fail with ‘GPU not supported’, the G04 driver would work but you would never get any new (Vulkan) features.
