Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Nvidia cautions users about its G80 Vista driver - Nvidia cautions users about its G80 Vista driver
Wed, January 31 2007 | 3:37PM | PermaLink Feedback?
The inquirer reports: "NVIDIA, a fabless chip firm, has finally released an "official" driver for Vista 32 and 64 bit. Unfortunately it is a beta driver but better than nothing. This driver has OpenGL support for Geforce 6, 7 and 8 series and has DirectX 10 support for Geforce 8800 GPUs. It also has support for DirectX 9 with Geforce 6, 7 and 8 series of cards.

DirectX 9 and OpenGL drivers for SLI and the family stone will be available tomorrow. A DirectX 10 driver supporting Geforce 8800 cards and DirectX 10 in SLI mode will be available sometime in "the future".

Nvidia points out there's a heap of unfinished things in this driver, so you'd better stay tuned for new releases as this one looks too patched for our taste. Obviously Microsoft has ensured this "launch" is very well coordinated with the hardware and fabless chip folk."
