Nvidia ForceWare 169.09 beta drivers recommended for Crysis

By on
Nvidia announced today new ForceWare beta drivers that offer several game and application compatibility fixes, and are also the recommended drivers for running the long awaited Crysis (coming out this Friday). This new release is the third set of beta drivers in less than a month that tries to improve compatibility and performance for the latest generation of games, which includes BioShock, Crysis, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Hellgate: London, Team Fortress 2, World in Conflict, and TimeShift. This holiday season is just such a great time to upgrade and be a PC gamer...

However, this latest trend in driver releases makes us wonder. How many times do they have to try before they get it completely right? Does this mean that for every new title to work properly end users will have to download new drivers? We understand Nvidia is trying to be proactive in fixing bugs and making optimizations for newer titles wherever they find room for them, but at the same time where do we cross a line? Shouldn't our high-end hardware just be capable of running the games we throw at it and look good while at it?

As usual these new ForceWare beta drivers are available for Windows XP / MCE 32bit, Windows XP 64bit / Server 2003 64bit, Windows Vista 32bit, and Windows Vista 64bit. Just click on the OS to download the proper driver from our database.
