I don't get the connection? Why would it depend on the nvidia drivers? Didn't the patch work for the people that tested it during this preview (not sure if everyone used the same driver or not)? I guess I think they're trying to fix the ATI glitches before releasing it since those were introduced with the patch (i.e. weren't there before and you hate to take a step backwards with a patch). As far as nvidia, I'd think they'd want it released sooner rather than later since it has been a thorn in their side for a while now and this patch fixes most of those issues. Anyway, nvidia does need to get out an official driver though. It does seem to be a little confusing for the 6800 users (knowing which one to use) since so many leaks are out.
