NVIDIA Finally Reaches WHQL-Certification For Vista

| Posted: Feb 20, 2007 10:44 pm

NVIDIA have just issued out some new ForceWare graphics card drivers for Vista, these numbered the 100.65s. The big news behind this driver release is that they're the first NVIDIA drivers to have received WHQL validation from Microsoft.

 

Its unfortunate however that these drivers are apparently still missing some rather important features from within the control panel, not to mention they're still lacking support for DX-10 in SLI mode. NVIDIA state this will become available in a 'future' driver; More on that at the Inquirer.

 

In contrast, another article at the Inquirer today indicates that AMD have got things perfectly under control in the driver dept. in line with the release of R600 in late march.

 

A press announcement from NVIDIA on the latest drivers can be found here, and you can download the 32-bit 100.65s here, and 64-bit ones here folks.

 



FEBRUARY 20, 2007-NVIDIA® Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today released the world's first WHQL-certified drivers for Microsoft DirectX 10, coinciding with the release of the first DirectX 10 test kit from Microsoft, which allows other hardware vendors to test their graphics processors using the DirectX 10 WHQL tests.

 

Microsoft DirectX 10 is included with Windows Vista and delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects for games, all rendered in real-time on NVIDIA GeForce 8-series GPUs. GeForce 8-series GPUs are the first and only Microsoft DirectX 10-capable GPUs currently available.
