Hmm...makes sense, sorta.

If you looked at the old 50.xx releases on Quadro, before we had 50.xx and used the 40.xx, seems like the same idea is happening again.

I am using these. They are great drivers for all the games I play. Excellent for multi-monitor setups as well.

Watching paint dry is more exiting than downloading drivers from nVidia.

This version is for NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_004E.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000"
NVIDIA_NV41.DEV_00CE.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 1400"
NVIDIA_BR02.DEV_00F8.1 = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 3400/4400"

There is no WHQL, but I will upload this version as it has some missing files that the beta doesn't have.

True, but they still install on my FX 5900 that is nvstrapped to Quadro FX 3000. Although I had to force install thru the device manager.

If anyone doesn't know how to force install then I suggest they use Pieter's INFs. Because he adds support for all cards.

nVidia's driver uploaded, same INFs (modded) will work quite happily for this version.
Comes with International files but not used in the original INF ?
Might add this for those that need it.

This is a quadro certified beta driver. It is available to the public on the main nvidia quadro driver page. You dont have to download it from the ftp site.

Nothing really, just saying that it is publicly available to people who dont know about the ftp site . Sometimes nvidia puts drivers on the ftp before they are on the main website. Thats all Im saying.

These are great for FarCry using HDR, but that's about it. I lost about 10 frames with these in UT2K4 =/

Smooth as silk, but the Raven Shield bug is still there. Didn't think I'd get rid of the ol' 66.81 so quick. If the next official release are like these, there will be a lot of happy people. These rock!

This driver has different setup files (when setup.exe is used).
I got an option to keep/update my profiles to the newer version, and I could choose each one individualy.
I have never seen this before, I could just be an ignorant schmuck but has anybody else noticed in other drivers ?

I've updated the modded INFs to be international compatable for those that need it. (seeing the files are added)

Nvidia quadro video cards are for workstation applications, like animation, etc. nvidia releases drivers for geforce/tnt cards and quadro cards seperately on their website. However, often you can use the "quadro certified" driver on a geforce card without problems due to the nvidia unified driver architecture.

A Quadro is a graphics card for computer aided design (CAD). A GeForce is purely a gaming card. The 70.41 drivers were designed for Quadro cards, but they still work with GeForce cards.

*edit - yeah, what he said ;)

The OSNN leaked version is for Geforces AND Quadro's, the nVidia version is for some Quadro's only.
The drivers are identical except for some files missing/added and the setup being slightly different.
This is a very good example of UDA at work, all drivers work with all GPU's, it's the INFs that limit what GPU's are usable.
That is where I come in and add all the PCI-ID's so all drivers are usale by all GPU's.

Hope this explains it, if not just believe me it works.

Thanks guys, now I know, so I asume that it' OK to dowload those drivers, too bad there is no international version.

If you have difficulties reading English then I do apologize.

hhm, that's strange, I just noticed the opposite with the first 70.41, UT2004 is way faster!
