Has anyone tried the proprietary driver with an Nvidia gt310m?


I've been getting a little discouraged with my laptop and I've been finding a lot of machines with gt310m graphics. The driver page last I checked didn't list this as being supported by the proprietary driver, I was just wondering if there's anyone that has tried it, and what the results were.

GeForce 310M (PCID 0x0A75) IS supported with the newest unified driver even though the driver search web app does not list it. You have to read the documentation until the web code is updated.

Once nvnews.net's forum is back up, you can read the threads there where the latest driver works as expected since at least the 195.36.03 beta driver. There were some issues with previous drivers and external LCD displays.
