Is there an open source driver for Nvidia

This may sound silly but I honestly don't know if there is any open source driver that can work with nvidia or not. Currently I am using the Nvidia 390xx which I suppose is proprietary? I would love to not use proprietary apps or drivers but as I know you can't really avoid it with Nvidia.

Yes, there is. It is called nouveau. Mind you, I don't have nvidia myself, but from what I heard around here, it doesn't work quite that good. Certainly, not as good as the open source alternative from AMD. At least for gaming and that sort of stuff. But it's up to you to try or wait from real users opinions.

Ah yes sorry I forgot about Nouveau. Tried it many times but could not make it work, which is a shame. I may try it again. Thank you for the links!
