NVIDIA's Windows 8 WHQL Display Driver Now Availableby Ryan Smith on June 27, 2012 11:15 PM EST
With the launch of the Windows 8 Release Preview at the very start of this month, NVIDIA initially promised that they would have Windows 8 WHQL’d display drivers available the following week. That week came and went (and then some), but better late than never, NVIDIA has finally posted their Win8 WHQL drivers.
The drivers are version 302.82, and support NVIDIA’s entire product line from the GeForce 6 series and on. The notable change here is the addition of official Windows 8 support, primarily in the form of WDDM 1.2 support for the 400 series and later, but also includes a number of more minor changes to bring their drivers in alignment with the best practices for Windows 8.
Note that these are older than the latest 304.42 betas for Windows Vista/7, and we aren’t expecting regular Win8 driver updates until Win8 finally goes RTM in the next month or so.
