Default New ForceWare 97.44 Drivers

New ForceWare 97.44 Drivers
There are brand new ForceWare 97.44 drivers out today. Anyone that owns a GeForce 8800 GTX or a 8800GTS should head on over and grab these drivers. The package weighs in at just under 40MB so grab them if you need them. Here is a quick list of highlights:

Supports GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS GPUs. Game and application compatibility fixes. New PureVideo technology features allows GeForce 8800 GTX/GTS to achieve a score of 128 in the HQV video quality benchmark: Improved inverse telecine algorithms (2:2 & 3:2 Pull-down Correction) for standard and high definition content. Improved spatial-temporal de-interlacing algorithm. Includes the new NVIDIA Control Panel.

I am still on 91.31... would I see much benefit in upgrading? Thing is, I can't stand the NV Control Panel at all... it has merely been ATIalised. Have the dropped the old system completely in this revision?


EDIT: not compatible drivers... i read the page more carefully. heh.

i highly doubt that, i won't bother checking though. i know that at least as far as FW 81.98 works on as far back as a GF2 so why would one version change eliminate the previous generation cards.
