Although the Linux 5.11 kernel is about to be released in early February, Linux founder Linus Torvalds said that he has decided to integrate the newly released open source driver of the NVIDIA RTX 30 series Ampere graphics card into the Linux 5.11 kernel. Generally speaking, no new features will be added until the new version of the Linux kernel is released, but because this update is very important, Linus decided to add this update.
Before the release of Linux 5.11-c4 this weekend, Linus Torvalds integrated the RTX 30 series graphics card open source driver from Nouveau driver into the Linux kernel. He said that this will not add additional risk and is happy to complete this update. This time is a rare update after the new version of Linux is packaged. The graphics card driver will be completely independent and will not affect the existing Nouveau driver.
