NVIDIA Releases 296.10 GeForce Driver, Introduces Windows 8 Driver Supportby Andrew Cunningham on March 13, 2012 10:00 PM EST
NVIDIA has just posted the WHQL-certified GeForce driver 296.10 for Windows 7 and Vista desktops and laptops and Windows XP desktops, and has also released a 296.17 driver specifically for the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. The new driver package replaces the weeks-old 295.73 driver package, and both it and the Windows 8 driver support all GeForce 8, 9, 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 series cards and IGPs - the desktop versions include support for the DirectX9 6 and 7 series chips, and the laptop versions include support for mobile Quadro products.
A few months usually pass between NVIDIA driver releases, so the list of new stuff is pretty light relative to what we normally get: boosted SLI performance in Blacklight: Retribution, Dirt 3, Dishonored, Dungeon Defenders, F1 2011, and rFactor 2, and 3D vision support for Dear Esther and Deep Black: Reloaded. The Windows 8 driver adds WDDM 1.2 support for that OS. That's it.
You can download all of the drivers from NVIDIA's GeForce driver site, which is linked below.
