New graphics drivers are available to users of GeForce 8, GeForce 7, and GeForce 6 graphics cards running Windows Vista. Nvidia's new ForceWare 163.69 release can be downloaded here for Vista 32-bit and on this page for 64-bit versions of Microsoft's latest operating system.
According to Nvidia, the new drivers bring improved compatibility in "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" games, including BioShock, Crysis, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Hellgate: London, and World in Conflict. Compatibility and performance for SLI setups in DirectX 9, DirectX 10, and OpenGL games has reportedly improved, too. For users of GeForce 8500- and 8600-series graphics cards, Nvidia says it has enabled high-definition video post processing for H.264, VC-1, and MPEG-2 HD video. The company also mentions "numerous game and application compatibility fixes," but it doesn't appear to have release notes detailing those fixes yet.
