Spread the love

Nvidia released a new set of GeForce/Ion drivers on Friday. They are suitable for the GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100 and 200 series, and the Ion GPUs. The drivers have been given version number 191.07 and are provided with a whql certification. Versions are available for Windows XP, 2003 Server, Vista and 7 in both 32bit and 64bit versions. New in the 190-series drivers are support for version 3.1 of OpenGL and version 2.3 of CUDA. Furthermore, there is a new way of power management, which makes it possible to create a performance profile per OpenGL or DirectX application. In version 191.07, support for OpenGL 3.2 has been added and the performance in several games has been improved. Below are the full release notes for version 191.07:

New in Version 191.07

  • Adds support for OpenGL 3.2 for GeForce 8, 9, 100, and 200-series GPUs and ION GPUs.
  • Accelerates performance in several gaming applications. The following are examples of improvements measured with version 191.07 drivers vs. version 190.62 drivers (results will vary depending on your GPU, system configuration, and game settings):
    • Up to 12% performance increase in ARMA 2
    • Up to 8% performance increase in Batman: Arkham Asylum with GPU PhysX enabled
    • Up to 50% performance increase in Call of Juarez: Blood in Bound with SLI enabled
    • Up to 14% performance increase in Fallout 3 (indoor scenes) with antialiasing enabled
    • Up to 10% performance increase in Far cry 2 (DX9 version) with antialiasing enabled
    • Up to 34% performance increase in Prototype with antialiasing enabled
  • Adds SLI support for Aion, Darkfall, Dawn of Magic 2: Time of Shadows, Dreamkiller, Fuel, Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim, Need for Speed: Shift and more.
  • Includes numerous bug fixes, including the following key fix (additional bug fixes can be found in the release notes on the documentation tab): For graphics cards supporting multiple clock states, 3D clocks correctly return to 2D clocks after exiting a 3D application.
  • Users without US English operating systems can select their language and download the International driver here.

New in Release 190/191 Drivers

  • Includes WHQL support for DirectCompute with Windows 7 and GeForce 8-series or higher graphics cards.
  • Installs PhysX System Software version 9.09.0814.
  • Supports NVIDIA 3D Vision Discover, a complete, low cost solution to start your immersive stereoscopic 3D experience. NOTE: If you are using NVIDIA 3D Vision active shutter glasses, you must download the separate 3D Vision driver which includes the driver for the 3D Vision IR emitter.
  • Supports CUDA 2.3 for improved performance in GPU Computing applications. see CUDA Zone for more details.
  • Supports a new user-controlled power management setting for select GeForce 9-series and later graphics cards (only available on cards that already support more than one power state). This option allows users to set a performance level for each DirectX or OpenGL application.

Existing Support:

  • Supports single GPU and NVIDIA SLI technology on DirectX 9, DirectX 10, and OpenGL, including 3-way SLI, Quad SLI, and SLI support on SLI-certified Intel X58-based motherboards.
  • Supports NVIDIA PhysX acceleration on a dedicated GeForce graphics card. Use one card for graphics and dedicate a different card for PhysX processing for game-changing physical effects. Learn more here.
  • Supports GeForce Plus Power Pack #3. Download these FREE PhysX and CUDA applications now!
  • Supports GPU overclocking and temperature monitoring by installing NVIDIA System Tools software.
