    178.26 are for Quadro cards only, but some editing does wonders :)

    HOW TO INSTALL:
    1) Go to nvidia.com
    2) Get 178.26 Quadro Graphics Drivers (for example FX 4600)
    3) Run installer and let it to extract files
    4) Close installer and go to C:/Nvidia/youros/178.26
    5) Replace original nv_4disp.inf/nv_disp.inf with one from attachment
    6) Run setup.exe

    CORES SUPPORTED


    P.S. I have no idea about performace difference between this and .24 ;)

    I can't get that D/L link to work, the other link in the news post worked fine, albiet slow, but the d/l size was only like 80MB...seems kinda short in size imo. Can you validate that before I try them out?

    Cool...I'm still happy with 177.83's tbh, but I also have been curious to try out the 180's and see what goodies and improvements there are for single card users.

    The 180.10 beta drivers show good promise, 600 marks increase for me in vantage! Can't wait to see how these drivers progress.

    for the vista64 version only, no other oses yet. Use the phyx driver you already have installed...

    Benches mean little to nothing to me really...no offense.

    But gaming performance, smootheness and stability are extremely important...I may try these drivers soon, but not for benchmarks. I get great game performance with the 177.83's, every game plays fine even with the GPU2 folding client running so it's tough for me to make the move...but the 180 series is finally dawning on us...so I gotta try em!

    Looks like the 180.42 is ready for prime time, it's on nvidia's site too as a beta. Finally, xp64 drivers!

    Unwinder is getting ready to release a new RivaTuner and Precision update which is in the final stages of testing. It fixes the fan control issues.
