Nvidia 430.09 now available for download, supports GeForce GTX 1650

The most significant update in this release is that the new NVIDIA Linux driver now supports the GeForce GTX 1650 with its Max-Q Design and GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q Design.

Nvidia has announced the release of version 430.09 of their display drivers for Linux platforms. The most significant update in this release is that the new NVIDIA Linux driver now supports the GeForce GTX 1650 with its Max-Q Design and GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q Design.

The new version also enables VDPAU / OpenGL surface sharing with a specific field or frame structure. Application-specific picture structure selection can avoid the need for implicit surface structure conversion by implementing OpenGL. Besides, support for creating NVIDIA VDPAU driver YUV 4:4:4 video surfaces are also added.

Apart from that, a critical bug is fixed in this version too. The bug which could cause a low-resolution display to be driven when PRIME is set up to unload with nvidia-xconfig-prime is fixed.

Other updates include a bump in the minimum supported X.Org xserver version to 1.7 (video driver ABI version 6), updated Nvidia-installer to improve ncurses compatibility when libncurses.so.6 exposes reentrant ABI ncurses, for example, openSUSE Leap 15 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15.

Known issue:

Vulkan that are enabled with flipping can lead to corruption in graphics. You can do either of these things as a workaround.

  • Disable flipping in nvidia-settings (uncheck “Allow Flipping” in the “OpenGL Settings” panel)
  • Disable UBB (run ‘nvidia-xconfig –no-ubb’)
  • Use a composited desktop
