Not long ago we introduced the first Release 256 driver, packed with new features and performance. Today we announced yet another driver from our Release 256* family of drivers, version 258.96, which brings even more goodness to the gaming community. Version 258.96 is going through WHQL certification now, and we expect the certified version to be available within a week.
The version 258.96 driver brings WHQL support for 3D Vision Surround technology – this immersive 3-monitor experience for 3D. It’s winning the hearts of press and gamers alike.
On the performance front, version 258.96 continues the trend of bringing even faster frame rates to the latest PC games. Take a look at the following improvements measured on a GeForce GTX 480:
Version 258.96 also adds support for the just announced GeForce GTX 460.
The WHQL-candidate version of 258.96 is posted here. This driver supports both desktop and notebook GeForce and ION GPUs on Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.
