I'm not too sure what to say but I suppose I'd better write something before I shut down and stick a 9800GTX into my system to start playing Crysis, finally! - As far as costs go we're hearing an annual fee of $49.95 USD that can be paid only by Credit Card. At the moment we don't know if this is only locked to U.S. people or if anyone around the world will be able to get in on it.
The other thing is an internet connection is required to install the driver to make sure the driver matches up with your system. How exactly this works we're not 100% sure, but we're sure NVIDIA are working on it before they release the drivers to the masses.
Now, you don't think we would release all this information without giving you the chance to try out the driver yourself? Of course not! - So if you want to get in on the action you can download the driver here and use the following key when asked: 13A18 1P88R1I 31LF1O4 13O15LS 1D8A99 9Y.
What happens now is going to be interesting; we're not sure how the hardware community is going to react to having to pay for drivers. If the support team is there and regular updates come as promised then we can't see people being unwilling to pay the small fee for this kind of performance increase.
Well, I'm off to enjoy some Crysis. No doubt more details on the new Unified Driver will pop up over the next month, so keep an eye on the news page as we keep you updated on what's going down!
