The NVIDIA GPU is a popular graphical chipset manufacturer.
NVidia GPUs can use either open source (x11-drivers/xf86-video-nouveau) or proprietary (close source) drivers (x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers). Because it is more up-to-date and efficient, the proprietary driver is often seen as a must-have for more computationally intensive 3D applications and games.
