- various Nouveau improvements, including initial NVIDIA Maxwell GPU support, initial GK20A and GK110B GPU support as well as support for allowing to change the frequency of the GPU from the BIOS predefined values for nv40, nvaa, and nve0 clock types;
- Radeon performance improvements through improved APU power management have been enabled in some APUs;

Applications / packages
Other notable changes in Ubuntu 14.10 include:
- Improved hybrid graphics support:
- nvidia-prime and gpu-manager now support GDM (these changes were backported to older Ubuntu versions, but without the GDM patch that allows this);
- added support for “gpumanager_uxa” and “gpumanager_modesetting” boot parameters, so that there is an option to force NVIDIA Optimus systems (that don’t work well with Intel/SNA) to use either Intel/UXA or modesetting);
- allow RandR offloading even without bbswitch;
- Netflix now works without any extra plugins in Ubuntu 14.10 (the changes were backported to Ubuntu 14.04), the only requirement being Google Chrome;
- Pidgin comes with Unity support thanks to a new Unity integration plugin (can be enabled from the Pidgin Plugins > Unity Integration) – this includes (both are optional) Messaging Menu integration and Unity Launcher unread messages/conversations
- Applications using client side decorations (header bars) look better under Unity with Ubuntu 14.10, but they are still not fully supported: for instance, CSD applications have no shadow, but at least the header bar looks as it should now and the windows can be resized.
