Default Diff betw 1.0-9xxx and 100.14.xx(beta)

I'm just curious why there are two different driver series, with two different numbering schemes.

For a newbie user who just wants to get things working, is the 1.0.9xxx the way to go ?

What features are missing compared to the 100.14.xx(beta) ?

TIA

The sticky posts on this forum already explain what the differences are between the two driver versions.

Sorry for being dense, but I went back and re-read the sticky posts. Third time through, and I still haven't found anything remotely suggestive of a difference between the two, apart from the numbering scheme and the word "beta".

Any more hints ?

TIA

BETA = TESTING = UNSTABLE = DO NOT USE IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A GOOD REASON

the new beta drivers add support for some of the latest graphic chips from nvidia (and maybe assorted bugfixes).

If you don't have one of the cards mentioned in the announcement and if you don't have problems with the 9xxx drivers, don't use the beta drivers.
