Parrot includes three nvidia drivers, the first is the opensource nouveau driver which is pre-installed and supports many common nvidia cards.

The other driver is the official proprietary driver shipped by Nvidia which is divided in 2 drivers, one legacy driver for old devices no longer supported by Nvidia, and the latest Nvidia driver which supports the latest GPUs.


Nvidia proprietary driver

Parrot includes the latest 367.44 nvidia driver

This version only supports GeForce, Quadro, NVS, Tesla, … GPUs based on the Fermi, Kepler, Maxwell, or newer architectures. Look at the legacy packages for older cards.
