We've finally got some WHQL-certified drivers from NVIDIA for Windows 8 Release Preview. The company released a beta version earlier this week and promised a four to eight-day window for the WHQL-approved version, and here we are.

Introducing the NVIDIA GeForce 302.80 drivers for desktop users running Windows 8 Release Preview. It's also been noted that these new drivers work on Windows 7, but as always, this is at your own risk. If you want to smash up these Windows 8-based drivers, let us know how you go.

You can expect more Windows 8-based testing once I heal from my Computex wounds, I broke my wrist pretty badly when I was over there. Feel free to send me donations of warm soup, hardware samples, warm hugs and money. I kid, I kid, but once I'm better, expect more original and new content from me, and more of us here at TweakTown (Trace, I'm looking at you buddy! International high-five).

Grab them here!

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
