A new ForceWare driver for Windows Vista has been leaked to the web. The credit goes to Station-Drivers for the discovery. This driver is available in both x32/x64 forms, it also includes WHQL certification and support for the GeForce 6-8 families. Despite the WHQL certification, since this driver came from an 'unofficial source', consider it as a beta ? and use it at your own risk. Don?t blame us if your computer explodes to small pieces/nuclear chain reaction/Anthrax attack. This is an unofficial beta driver and use it with extreme caution.
Derek Perez, the PR headmaster, contacted us and said that Nvidia hadn't signed anything with Intel and that SLI will continue to be technology exclusive to nForce chipsets. However, Intel's keynote held on the first day of Computex had a slide which mentioned that Intel has licensed SLI technology for future products, after which one outlook for future V8 systems was a bit more optimistic.
Nvidia has released a new beta ForceWare Vista driver for their GeForce 8000 family. This driver offers improved performance for DirectX 10 version of Company of Heroes.

For the architectural part our own Charlie "Open Sauce ATI Drivers, AMD" Demerjian, while the guttery part of testing R600 boards on AMD and Intel processors with no less than five motherboards fell into my hands. But, before we get to that, we're presenting you with a couple of screenshots from the FUD doc that was spread around selected media. Since we did not receive the presentation from Graphzilla, we feel no obligation not to post information contained in this document.

A new ForceWare driver has been leaked to the web anonymously. The driver?s date is 27/04/2007 and it?s available only in one form for Windows 2000/XP/2003. This driver includes Multi-language files and support for the GeForce 5-8 families. However, since this driver came from an unofficial source, consider it as super-beta and use it at your own risk! Don?t blame us if something bad happens.
Nvidia plans to release some of its graphics processor unit (GPU) technology to Intel in exchange for cooperation with the chip giant, according to sources at motherboard makers. Nvidia has had discussions with Intel and has already reached several agreements for cooperation, noted the sources, adding that details of the agreements remain unknown.

SLI still does add cost to a platform, and while that cost is shrinking, there is still a market out there that would rather save a few dollars than have an additional PCI Express X16 sized graphics card slot and SLI functionality. Thus, Nvidia is finally delivering an nForce 600-series platform sans SLI, called the nForce 650i Ultra. The nForce 650i Ultra is targeting cost conscious gamers and will be competing against Intel's popular 965-series platforms.
Everyone is speculating about the performance of the upcoming GeForce 8800 Ultra. We calculated the benchmarks of a 8800 Ultra in a mathematic way (we don't talk about how we did that exactly) and can offer an outlook to the real performance of this card.
This website gathers information to determine the viability for a class action lawsuit against nVidia (and some of its manufacturing partners) for problems involving "Vista Ready Certified" products on the Microsoft Vista operating system.We beilive that nVidia and its manufacturing partners defrauded us. Therefore, we are proactively gathering information from victims around the world who have suffered similar harms, and who we believe have also been defrauded.
French site Station-Drivers have managed to put their hands on ForceWare 101.09 WHQL. This driver is available for both Windows XP (x32/x64) and Windows Vista (x32/x64). Since this driver never came officialy directly from Nvidia, consider it as a beta, and use it by your own risk.
Some sour news for owners of nForce 2 based PCs. It appears NVIDIA has no intent to further support the once dominating much loved chipset. You wouldnt mind so much if it wasnt for Vista taking over the reigns next year, but without some fresh fully functional drivers for the OS you'll be in a bit of trouble.
Yes it is possible. The example is a MCP 550 running SLI mode with 2 7600GT (ASUS+GIGABYTE) with Forceware 84.21.
Here at Computex we have the privilege of meeting a lot of companies? employees ranging from CEO`s all the way down to Customer Service. We were very fortunate to speak with someone from Nvidia at a restaurant. We can not say who this person is, or what position this person holds. According to Him/Her, Nvidia will invade the processor market in the long future, telling us that it could take years but eventually - it will happen.
NVIDIA had an issue on their hands with their flagship 7900 GTX retail cards consistently freezing and locking -- we finally have the answer and NVIDIA's response.
Not everybody knows how to perform a voltage mod. Today we?re giving 7800GT users a small gift - this universal 7800GT BIOS image contains a small voltage mod of 0.1v in 3D mode, meaning you will be able to overclock your 7800GT even higher.
NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced that it has combined the processing capabilities of the NVIDIA GoForce family of handheld graphics processing units (GPUs) with Intel Corporation?s newest processor family based on the third-generation Intel XScale® architecture.

NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced the Company will be conducting technology demonstrations this week of its new family of NVIDIA nForce family media and communications processor (MCP) which will be available mid-2006. Nvidia Press Release
Since the nForce4's release, the chipset's ActiveArmor networking capabilities have struggled to live up to their promised potential for reducing CPU utilization by handling TCP checksumming in hardware rather than on the host CPU. Over time, we've watched ActiveArmor's CPU utilization oscillate between impressively low and alarmingly high. Every new driver release seemed to change ActiveArmor's CPU utilization, and to make matters worse, many found that using ActiveArmor at all could lead to data corruption or instability.

If you checked out our world exclusive benchmarks of the new Quake 4 1.05 with dual core and multi CPU performance enhancements you found that we had none. Well turns out there is an issue causing this, and our results are correct.
Late last week, we had two exclusive insider reports in regards to NVIDIA?s upcoming product strategies. These included the company?s decision to phase out its 7800GTX 512MB early next year and launching the 7800GS in AGP flavor to cover the missing market.
We have done some preliminary tests on Dual Core AMD CPU with the latest Forceware 81.95 NVIDIA drivers with Dual Core Optimizations. Results are very promising...
After some interesting discussion across a couple of forums this past couple of days, coupled with the desire to put into the public domain the information I'd received during the course of the week, I've taken some time out to look at the relationship between marketing firm AEG and graphics giant NVIDIA, in particular their so-called 'outreach programme' and what it really entails.
This news is six months old but for various reasons is still not widely known. nVidia dropped "Unified" driver support in Windows XP/2000 for certain GPUs (Graphics Processing Units), starting with driver v77.72. This is not the first time they have done this with their "Unified" driver architecture but it is significant in its disparity. The irony is the lack of "Unification".
A new version of nvFlash (NVIDIA Firmware Update Utility) is available, and the most current version is nvFlash v5.25
nVidia BIOS Modifier has been updated to version v3.0 ! This tool must be used by ADVANCED users ONLY! This tool works correctly with BIOSes of 6x00 / 7x00 series cards ONLY (including QUADRO series, built on NV4x and higher) !!! BIOSes of 5x00 and older aren?t supported.
Integrated slides and video of our SIGGRAPH 2005 Exhibitor Tech Talks (Sponsored Sessions) are now available.
The Problem: Shimmering is a problem that can occur between mipmap transisitions on various hardware within the G70 series. Prior on the Geforce 6 series you could set the LoD clamp and turn on High Quality and shimmering would be removed. However it turns out that these fixes did not provide adequate results on Geforce 7 hardware.
