nVidia has finally released a new ForceWare graphics driver (100.59 - 32-bit and 64-bit) for the new Windows Vista operating system which supports SLI.

 

Don't get too excited though - it's still BETA and not WHQL certified and SLI support is only included for the new GeForce 8800 range. Maybe worst of all is that the driver still doesn't support DX10 in SLI mode.

 

Release Highlights:

 

- Beta driver for NVIDIA SLI™ support for GeForce 8800 GTX/GTS GPUs

 

This driver supports the following features:

 

- Single GPU support
DirectX 9 support for GeForce 6/7/8 series GPUs
DirectX 10 support for GeForce 8800 GPUs
OpenGL support for GeForce 6/7/8 series GPUs

 

- NVIDIA SLI support
DirectX 9 support for GeForce 8800 GPUs
OpenGL support for GeForce 8800 GPUs

 

- DirectX 9 and OpenGL NVIDIA SLI support for GeForce 6 and 7 series GPUs and DirectX 10 NVIDIA SLI support for GeForce 8800 GPUs will be available in a future driver

 

If you're running Windows Vista and an nVidia graphics card, you can download the 32-bit version and 64-bit version from the nVidia website.
