NVIDIA GeForce 8800 drivers for Vista still not available

Posted on Wednesday, December 27 2006 @ 00:06:32 CET by

Windows Vista graphics cards drivers for NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 are still not available. It looks like consumers will have to wait till January 2007 for the first Windows Vista drivers.
So what happens when you plug a G80 into a Vista system? You are forced to install standard VGA driver that will let you change the resolution to fit your native resolution of the screen and that’s it. Aero Glass won’t work and even rendering of 2D windows will be difficult.

Nvidia has really disappointed us with lack of Vista driver in 2006 but we hope that the full working version will be ready soon. Until then, ATI users can play all they want with Vista with the exception that a few things won’t work well, but every card is supported while Nvidia users can forget the super high end G80s for the time being.
