DriverHeaven had a chance to speak to Chris Daniel, Software Product Manager for Nvidia's Geforce GPUs. Chris speaks about CUDA, PhysX and details Windows 7 driver support and development.
DH: What differences are there in driver development for older operating systems such as Windows XP compared to Vista? A lot of users remain loyal to XP. How will the release of Windows 7 affect support for XP?
Chris: I have already seen many loyal XP users (those that skipped Vista) start evaluating the Windows 7 Beta. So far it seems like many are open to transitioning to Windows 7. It just feels zippier to me and they have worked out most of the complaints that people had with Vista. But our support for XP won’t go away anytime soon. It is really up to our customer base depending on the direction they take.
