GeForce 8800 Vista driver (100.54) coming Jan 30th!

Cameron Wilmot | Jan 25, 2007 9:01 PM CST

Driver Description: This driver is intended for testing on GeForce 8800 GTX/GTS series GPUs. This driver is intended for DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 application testing in single GPU only. It is not recommended for NVIDIA SLI testing. 3D performance of this driver is improved over Release 95 Vista drivers, and is on par with Windows XP for the top applications, with the exception of OpenGL applications. This driver can also be used with GeForce 7 and GeForce 6 series GPUs, though performance can be slower on some applications because we still have work to do on our drivers. Our goal is to get Vista performance equivalent to XP performance wherever possible, and we will do this through continuous driver updates.

NVIDIA's plan is to make a driver available for end users on on January 30, 2007. This driver is a beta driver and the first SLI driver, intended to support GeForce 8, 7, and 6 series GPUs, and will add support for GeForce 8800 GTX/GTS DirectX 9 SLI on the top applications. NVIDIA will continue to work on optimizing our Windows Vista drivers to ensure maximum performance on 3D applications.

In addition, NVIDIA is working very closely with Microsoft to finalize the WHQL certified DirectX 10 driver for the GeForce 8800 GTX/GTS GPU. Both companies have been in close communication to ensure that the logo kit gets finalized to enable the certification of the driver as soon as possible to enable getting it into the hands of customers.
