I wonder what could possibly be holding up nVidia from releasing a press release about the new drivers... :eek2:

I say ATi takes the lead of driver update. They probably making whole bunch of BS and hidden cheating codes in their driver, undetectable... :p

Sorry Volt, I meant it as a joke. Everyone was so convinced that new drivers "were coming out Monday" that I remembered a lot of peeps here saying "no, that is wrong...it's tomorrow, Tuesday that they're coming out"..

Hey, it was at least an attempt at something new instead of me lame old "We're still ready!" type-o-comment. ;)

Basically, it just keeps them quiet for a few minutes...right?

yeah, but if i had kids I would be playing some "waiting for darkness" by ozzy and no one would dare talk during that great song, unless it's the middle of the song which kinda gets a bit lame with the psycho music. lol....anyways, back on topic. there are new drivers, not official though.

According to someone on beyond3d, its 45.32 coming out this week..

P.S. Whats the address for nvidia's ftp where these drivers are? I tried ftp.nivida.com but that doesn't let me in.

Per request: nVidia's back-up FTP server (ftp://download1.nvidia.com/Windows/)

None, that's me 6 year old sons and he's currently having a ball playing Airfix Dogfight & Extremely Goofy Skateboarding on it in some truly impressive marathon sessions. (It's been raining here.)

EDITED BITS: I forgot to mention that the drivers are in the Quadro directory, you can find 'em here (ftp://download1.nvidia.com/Windows/Quadro_Certified/45.24/).

quakecon starts tomorrow, I'd think they'd want to have new drivers out before that, that means probably today

The 45.23 drivers WHQL for all GF FXes are now available on nvidia's FTPs but the main driver page has not yet been updated

Winxp WHQL:

ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/45.23/45.23_win2kxp_whql_english.exe

ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/45.23/45.23_win2kxp_whql_international.exe

Win9x non-WHQL:

ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/45.23/45.23_win9x_english.exe

ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/45.23/45.23_win9x_international.exe

Of course these drivers are the same as the leaked 45.23 driver almost a week ago...






For mirrors:
