Support for GTX 275 added

| Posted: Apr 2, 2009 5:13 pm

nVidia has punted a 2nd driver out the door today 185.65 Beta. This new driver includes support for the just launched GTX 275 among other things.

 

The new driver is the second one today as nVidia released WHQL 185.50 earlier this morning. The new drivers also offer performance improvements for Cuda enabled applications.
