The Inq learned today that NVIDIA's Windows Vista driver for the GeForce 8800 GTX and GTS will be launched in mid-December.
Vista comes out at the end of January and the Nvidia will be ready for that timeframe with the final driver. It just doesn’t want to unnecessarily jump the gun and reveal some bugs while it has time to polish the driver before it lets it out.
Geforce 8800 GTX and GTS have a very good Windows XP SP2 driver and this is the OS where Nvidia keeps its focus at. Vista gaming is still to come and some frustrated G80 early Vista birds can only watch the card and cry. Not even aero works without Nvidia's help but the driver is on the way, some ten+ days to go, unless Nvidia delays it again.
