Radeon users got their new drivers on Monday, and now it's the turn of folks with GeForce and Ion graphics processors. Nvidia has released a new batch of drivers, release 186.18, for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.
The drivers look like your typical maintenance release, bringing with them a number of bug fixes and a new version of the PhysX System Software. For Windows 7, these drivers iron out a handful of problems for some GeForce 200, GeForce 9, and SLI configurations. The same goes for Vista, although Nvidia also dealt with issues affecting older products (down to the GeForce 6100) for that OS.
The company only mentions one bug fix for Windows XP: on multi-GPU systems, "The PhysX option is disabled by default after driver installation."
If you're dying for specifics about bygone bugs (and leftover ones), you can check out Nvidia's full release notes for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. The drivers themselves are available from Nvidia's driver download page, as always.
