Very cool news for all the Linux users, including myself. nVidia has released nvclock 0.8 nearly 2 years after it's last update. This is very good news, as nVidia drives for Linux have improved vastly over the past 2 years, making them an actual worthwhile investment for hardware acceleration and game playing. For those new to it, nvclock is an enthusiasts dream – A hardware overclocking utility for Linux. This new version supports all newer GeForce cards and has stamped out a huge number of bugs and incompatibilities with previous versions. It is x86-64 sources compatible for those of us running 64bit Linux and supports hardware sensor detection and readout, for fan speeds and temperature monitoring. It weighs in at less than 400k and has a decent looking GUI (akin to nVidia's Control Panel). You can get it from www.nvidia.com or from the linked article.
