It's taken a while but today, NVIDIA is finally giving all those Windows 8 users who have GeForce graphics cards on their desktop PCs
some love. In an updated blog post
, NVIDIA has now released the 302.80 beta versions of the desktop GeForce drivers (32-bit version
and 64-bit version
) for the Windows 8 Release Preview.
The same day that the Windows 8 Release Preview was launched by Microsoft, NVIDIA said it would release its WHQL-based Windows 8 compatible GeForce graphics driver versions sometime in the next week
. However, NVIDIA later announced that the release of those drivers was delayed
. These new beta drivers that were made available to download today are not yet WHQL certified. Furthermore, notebooks that use NVIDIA graphics chips won't get their own beta Windows 8 drivers until Friday.
