Vista only, XP version still in beta

 

Nvidia released a WHQL version of the 158.18 driver for Vista 32 and 64 bit. It is the same one as the beta we tried last week, but this time it is certified by The Vole.

The problem with enabling SLI on the international driver version is now gone and in case of any problems, Nvidia recommends to use the US English one.

The new driver adds support for the Geforce 8600 GTS, GT, 8500 GT, 8400 GS and finally the 8300 GS. The last two are OEM parts only. The new driver increases the performance in 3D applications, has PureVideo HD support and you can now force Vertical Sync in DirectX titles. It also has many game and application compatibility fixes.  

This driver has a new better Control Panel and it is finally easier to find your way around the UI. A single GPU supports DirectX 9 and OpenGL rendering for Geforce 6, 7 and 8 series of GPUs and DirectX 10 support is only for the Geforce 8 series of GPUs. Nvidia SLI support in DirectX 9 and OpenGL mode is enabled for Geforce 6, 7 and 8 cards.

DirectX 10 SLI support for the Geforce 8800 GPUs comes in a future driver. You can download the Vista 32 version here and Vista 64 version here.

Windows XP 158.19 still remains in beta version.
