Ubuntu 19.10 will ship with proprietary Nvidia drivers available on the ISO.

This addition is a first for Ubuntu, and could dramatically improve the “fresh install” Linux experience for (potentially millions of) Ubuntu users.

And gamers too.

Not just "gamers too", this move is obviously aimed at gamers.

the proprietary Nvidia drivers are not enabled by default.

Instead, those drivers are simply there, ready for the system to install for those who opt to enable them.

The open-source Nvidia drivers known as “nouveau” continue to serve as the default GPU drivers on Nvidia hardware for new Ubuntu installs and “live” sessions

Puppy does this now, but not putting the driver package in the iso.
Most official Puppies, have the Nvidia driver packages in their repositories, to download and install.

Quote:
with the various packages adding an extra 114MB to the (already engorged) 2.1GB .ISO file.

That indicates only the latest driver package is going to be in the iso.
That is OK for new and newest Nvidia hardware.
However, not for old or very old Nvidia hardware.
Depending on the hardware, the newest drivers may or may not support the old hardware.
