Nvidia plans to launch its next reference driver update, release 5216, soon. The company's so-called "50-series" drivers will likely be followed by a new 55-series early next year & a 60-series some months afterward. However, according to an Nvidia representative, though the company has traditionally released reference drivers quarterly, it won't necessarily continue to do so unless needed, &, ideally, the company eventually hopes to release as few as 1 driver update per year.
