NVIDIA GPUs susceptible to Spectre vulnerability; new drivers released to mitigate

It turns out that NVIDIA GPUs are susceptible to Spectre after all (but not Meltdown). They have released new drivers to mitigate the vulnerability:

That's a bit misleading. From the actual NVidia release notes:

"We believe our GPU hardware is immune to the reported security issue. As for our driver software, we are providing updates to help mitigate
the CPU security issue.
"


Like any software, their drivers are a target, but their GPUs aren't susceptible.
