nVidia have been busy with GTX 680 driver released including the alternate (some say better) OS's :)

Linux Display Driver - x86

Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver

Release Highlights

  • Added support for the following GPUs:

      GeForce GTX 680
      GeForce GT 630M
      GeForce GT 620

    [*]Fixed a VDPAU bug where decoding some H.264 streams would cause hardware errors on lower-end products, resulting in corruption and poor performance.

    [*]Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort audio to stop working after monitors are hotplugged on GeForce GT 520.

    [*]Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.

    [*]Fixed a behavior change that prevented ConnectedMonitor from being usable with DisplayPort connectors.

    [*]Marked the GVO Clone mode NV-CONTROL attributes:


      NV_CTRL_GVO_DISPLAY_X_SCREEN
      NV_CTRL_GVO_X_SCREEN_PAN_X
      NV_CTRL_GVO_X_SCREEN_PAN_Y

    as deprecated. They will be removed in a future release. To display an X screen over GVO, it is recommended to use GVO with MetaModes, instead.[*]Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort devices to not be listed in Xorg.*.log. For example, if only DisplayPort devices are attached, the log file would contain


      (--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on NVIDIA GPU at PCI:2:0:0
      (--) NVIDIA(0): none

    [*]Added support for 3D Vision ready displays that have a NVIDIA 3D Vision infrared emitter built inside the panel itself.

    [*]Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL applications to crash with some libc versions, such as eglibc 2.15.

    [*]Fixed a bug that caused HDMI audio to stop working on AppleTV devices when an X server was started.
