NVIDIA released New GeForce graphics drivers For Windows 8 Consumer Preview

If you use the Consumer Preview of the operating system Windows 8 delivered on 29 February by Microsoft – final version always approached for next fall -, that should interest you.

 As rival AMD earlier this month , the giant NVIDIA has indeed released a version of its graphics driver that was specifically developed for the prerelease version of Windows 8.

 Numbered 296.17, it works with both fixed and mobile solutions such as the recent GeForce GT 520, GeForce GTX 560, GeForce GTX 580 and GeForce GTX 590, with the relatively fixed and mobile solutions like the old GeForce 9000 Series GeForce 8000 Series, GeForce 7000 and GeForce 6000 Series even. For those running Windows Vista and Windows 7, remember to complete a stamped version 296.10.


  1. This is part of Nvidia’s High end cards. It’s based as a lower end spectrum of the Higher end cards. This is great for pelope that are on a budget but do not want to sacrifice the quality for photo and video editing, playing HD video, and playing games. If you have a 19-22 HD monitor, this is a perfect video card. It has enough power to push the pixels on that size screen. Anything larger than 24 , I would recommend to use these cards in SLI configuration. This is a great card by itself and it works well in 1.1 version PCI-E slots for pelope worried about compatibility. Fits in most PCs as well, Length is about 8.5 – 9 . Fits in my Gateway GT5622. II have tested it with a 300 Watt power supply and it works, but I did upgrade it to a 460 Watt power supply. Overall this is a great card that plays many past great games plus most recent games with frame rates over 30 FPS. Many games tested are over 50-60 fps.
