NVIDIA Releases GeForce 182.47 BETA Driver with OpenGL 3.1 Support

Only one day after releasing the GeForce 182.46 BETA Driver, NVIDIA yesterday launched the 182.47 BETA Driver, to support the launch of the Khronos Group's announcement of the new OpenGL 3.1 streamlined specification found here. Although it has not made it onto the main driver page yet, the drivers are available to download from the NVIDIA Developer Zone. For more information, release notes and Linux download links, you can find the driver page here

What a driver release mismanagement botch-job. Either one department/team wasnt talking to the other, or someone was off sick or on holiday and the release team said "release the beta anyway without the OpenGL stuff".

Why is nV under so much pressure? ;)

That doesn't even make sense? These are BETA releases... they come out as frequently as they can create a version that is stable enough for public testing.

Using these driver's I get about 300 more PPD in F@H than I did with the 182.08's, I'd say that's a decent improvement.

Too bad OpenGL has pretty much sucked after 2004. :/

Vista drivers work so much better than the 181.71 W7 driver on Windows 7.

Sounds a bit backwards, but its true.

Have tried both, and about to get rid of these 181.71's in favour of these, the 181.71's are awful

Really?

I cannot find info anywhere comparing 181.71 W7 driver to any of the Vista drivers on W7...

I, myself am considering removing the 181.71 from my W7 install and trying a Vista driver in W7 but haven't seen any proof that a Vista driver is better.

Please point the way if you can........

I did my own test.

For a start 181.71 doesnt down clock my card.

Have just found much more stability with the Vista drivers.
