Nvidia releases Forceware 182.50 WHQL drivers

By on April 2, 2009, 5:56 PM
Nvidia has released a new set of WHQL-certified drivers which bring official support for the newly released GeForce GTX 275 as well as the usual GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, and 200-series desktop GPUs. The new package, version 182.50, will reportedly optimize single GPU and SLI support for upcoming PC games and includes numerous bug fixes.

It also boosts performance in several games compared to the previous WHQL release, with Nvidia citing titles such as Fallout 3 and Left 4 Dead, and installs the latest PhysX System Software. You can read more about these improvements in the official release notes (PDF) or pick the appropriate OS below to download the latest Forceware driver release.

These drivers are still in the 182 family and do not include support for upcoming features like Ambient Occlusion, which is already available in the 185.63 beta released yesterday. Though this is enabled by default in many newer games, Nvidia says the Ambient Occlusion option means older games will look nicer than ever by making lighting effects and shadows much more realistic.
