With all the brouhaha about the newest video cards from nVidia, you might think that the company was going to abandon development of drivers for the older cards, or possibly make another cut-off of those cards supported. This morning’s release of new, and WHQL certified, drivers makes that idea go away, because these drivers are for all but the newest Fermi series boards.


Nvidia has today rolled out a new WHQL driver for all its ‘usual’ desktop graphics cards except the newly-introduced GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470. The GeForce 197.45 includes the PhysX v9.10.0129 software, supports the GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100, 200, and 300 series cards and ION GPUs, and includes the following highlights:
– Recommended for the best performance with the new GPU-accelerated features in Adobe CS5.
– Adds support for the new version of MotionDSP’s video enhancement software, vReveal, which adds support for HD output.
As always, follow the black brick links below to download Nvidia’s driver:
GeForce 197.45 WHQL (Windows XP 32bit)
GeForce 197.45 WHQL (Windows XP 64bit)
GeForce 197.45 WHQL (Windows 7/Vista 32bit)
GeForce 197.45 WHQL (Windows 7/Vista 64bit)

Adobe fans will be very happy, and so will those who are looking for the latest game fixes, which are only detailed on the nVidia site. After a rocky patch the drivers seem to be working well on all versions of Windows, laying to rest any ideas that nVidia was slacking on the drivers for Windows XP and Vista.


Spock @ the console the new drivers would seem to promote greater performance, Captain.
