nVidia shows off Vista at the IDF

By Justin Mann on
nVidia was providing the GPUs at Intel's IDF this month, coupled into the XPS laptops and other kiosks there that demonstrated the up and coming Vista. Luckily for the desktop user, they weren't using souped up super-high end stuff we can't get our hands on, but rather GPUs from their GeForce FX, 6 and 7 line, which are exceedingly common. Essentially, the fears over not being able to run vista on a modern system may be overplayed a bit. While MS has stated that it will run even on older equipment, that often means “stripped down to an unpleasant level”. Microsoft may even revise the required hardware as time goes on.
