Nvidia GTX 1050 upgrading

Post by Franczesko » Fri May 18, 2018 6:12 am

Hello

I would like to ask you about upgrading Nvidia card I've read how to do that on the forum,but I am confused is there any point of that, my main issue is the GPU temp, it's a lil bit higher than on windows 10 ( about 7 degrees, 55 - 58 degrees on linux, max temp on windows 51 ) I ve hear that the upgrading is not recommended because it would make some problems in the future with system, and it's better to stay with default drivers nvidia384. I am waiting for your opinions.

thanks you for the answers

Code: Select all

Kernel: 4.13.0-41-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)
           Desktop: Cinnamon 3.6.7 (Gtk 3.18.9-1ubuntu3.3)

Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA Device 1c03 bus-ID: 01:00.0

All I can say is that my mint is solid with the above specs. I feel no reason to use any other combo at present.

I can tell you that my Ubuntu Mate 18.04, Kernel 4.15, NVIDIA 390 install on the same hardware currently has terrible screen tear on video playback , regardless of tweaking the settings.

Make of that what you will.

I wouldn't worry to much about that small change in temp readings.
