NVIDIA have just released a fresh set of drivers, where we have them split into two variants. First off, we have the GeForce 296.10 which is available for Windows XP, Vista and 7 users, where it boosts SLI performance in a few titles: Blacklight: Retribution, Dirt 3, Dishonored, Dungeon Defenders, F1 2011 and rFactor 2.




The update also includes improvements or adds 3D Vision profiles for Dear Esther and Deep Black: Reloaded. Support for the newly-released GeForce GTX 560 SE is included, as well as a bunch of bug fixes for various applications when running single or multi-GPU configurations. As a bonus, the 296.10 are WHQL-certified. You can grab those, here.
