NVIDIA has released their first driver update for NVIDIA GeForce and Quadro GPUs.
Microsoft‘s Windows 8 Consumer Preview was released two weeks ago and as part of their partnership to support NVIDIA GPU-based systems, they have released their first driver update for NVIDIA GeForce and Quadro GPUs.
This release represents the start of regular NVIDIA driver updates for Windows 8. These drivers, version 296.17, are available for both GeForce and Quadro GPU-based desktops and notebooks on NVIDIA.com and on Microsoft’s Windows Update. An equivalent driver, version 296.10 (WHQL-certified), can be downloaded on GeForce.com today. These drivers are a quick refresh from the recent version GeForce 295.73 drivers and are a must-have for gamers looking for the best experience in upcoming games like Blacklight: Retribution.
