New WHQL nForce 3 and nForce 4 drivers

By Justin Mann on November 2, 2005, 3:52 PM
For those of you using nForce3-based or nForce4-based motherboards (which is probably a large percentage of you), such as the A8N series, the DFI Lanparty series and more, nVidia has released their latest WHQL certified chipset drivers for both. The nForce 3 and nForce 4 packages are available from nVidia's site at around 34MB each. The nForce4 8.22 set is the first release for the new NF4 430 series, and includes new drivers for IDE and SATA along with SATA RAID. With nForce boards I suggest updating your drivers as stable releases come out, as often the improvements are worth it for both performance and stability.

I have the A8N-SLI deluxe.The link you give above takes me to the download page for thenForce4 430/410 - Windows XP/2000 32-Bit Version: 8.22I've always just installed the nforce4 AMD version of that driver. Should I be looking at the 430/410 version instead? Is that a better one for AMD systems, than the AMD version of the drivers?I am asking because it seems from your article that you are suggesting that this new driver is appropriate for all nforce4 boards including the ones using AMD.Dazed and confused, I admit....

That is the driver you want donnagual...It supports all nForce mobos... Though do keep in mind that onboard sound might require and or get different functionality if you use the driver supplied by your mainboard manufacturer...In your case (if you use the onboard sound) you should omit installing the sound drivers and instead use the ones found on Asus site...

Perhaps this is off topic (feel free to delete this comment if not appropriate).It is just surprising to me that it is not more obvious on the nvidia site that the 430/410 version of the driver is actually the one we all want.The average user, like myself, will go to nvidia's site, and follow the links: dowload driversplatform/nforce driversnforce4 AMDwindowsXPBut according to you, I should be selectingdowload driversplatform/nforce driversnforce4 430/410windowsXPI am sure that most people are not aware of this, so thank you for this article.
