Default 174.55 - Newer than 173.08?

174.55 is the NVIDIA driver shipped with the CUDA 2.0 beta.

Is this newer, older or just a different branch than 173.08 beta? (I need CUDA but also need to track the upcoming 8xxx performance fixes.)

My guess is that it's a different branch. It's not on the normal advanced driver finder page (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us), and it uses a completely different path on nvidia's website.

Yeah, actually just looking at the README:

Last Updated: 2007/12/05
Most Recent Driver Version: 174.55

Frustrating, because, despite being the official driver for CUDA 2.0 beta, it's too old to support the 9xxx series. There must be some logic behind this apparently bizarre pattern of driver numbering, but damned if I can figure it out.
