Nvidia's has let loose its first new, non-beta graphics driver since June. The 280.26 release, which bears a stamp of approval from Microsoft's WHQL labs, is available from the GeForce website. You can find out about the driver's various improvements and additions here in the GeForce.com website's "What's New" section.
From what I can see, this release should be of greatest interest to folks with 3D Vision setups. Nvidia has added support for some extra 3D projectors and monitors; fresh 3D Vision profiles for a cornucopia of games, both new and unreleased (including id Software's Rage); and updated 3D Vision profiles for Crysis 2, Deep Black, and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.
These 280.26 drivers should also squash a decent selection of bugs. Highlights include weapon rendering quirks with GeForce 500-series GPUs in Crysis 2, some driver installation problems, and a good number of issues pertaining to multi-GPU systems—from rendering bugs to 3D Surround configuration hiccups. The whole list of resolves issues can be perused on this page. (Thanks to TR reader SH SOTN for the heads up.)
