mrazster added a comment to T6580: Nvidia Linuxdriver 396.24 .

We have 4 different nvidia drivers for varying levels of compatibility:

  1. nouveau for old cards or cards too new for the highest driver (except for the 970, poor bastard)
  2. The 304 long-lived branch
  3. The 340 long-lived branch (8600GT or newer)
  4. The 390 long-lived branch (400 series or newer)

I'd rather not add another driver until the next long-lived branch is introduced. That will most assuredly meet the new needs for DXVK and company. At that time though, we will most likely retire the 304 long-lived branch to keep the list shorter. In the meantime, Nvidia is still backporting features just at a slower rate than you might like. You are of course welcome to clone our nvidia-glx-driver package and get it working with the short-lived branch, but we have already rolled back from 396 once, and I would prefer to not repeat that since it legitimately forced people to rollback from command line.
Also, while I get the frustration over Tomb Raider that's just the way of it. Nvidia was late to the Vulkan party in general and they haven't been very forthcoming in helping the Mesa devs get Nouveau up to snuff either.

Updating the branch to 396 without changing how updates are done will will lead to black screens on systems that the 396 drivers no longer support, even if an extra 390 package is added.

As Devil said, you can easily compile it yourself and until now it wasn't need to be updated to the latest driver, and solus is rolling not bleeding edge stuff will get updated but not by braking other users systems. I bothered them about it already and they will come up with a solution

.... and it seems the maintainers don't wanna have yet another nvidia driver pkg :)
