Nvidia: Windows 7 driver updates to come on a regular basis

Nvidia had some very good news for customers planning to deploying Windows 7. The company says that as of today, it will be releasing regular driver updates for Windows 7. Dwight Diercks, vice president of software engineering at NVIDIA, explained where this is coming from: "We expect that all of our hard work teaming with Microsoft over the past two years will pay off for GeForce GPU owners when Windows 7 officially launches. Our customers are demanding an experience that is faster and more visual, and with the addition of many new GPU-accelerated features, including DirectX Compute, we believe Windows 7 will be well positioned to meet those needs."

In other words, Microsoft is cracking down on driver testing early for Vista's successor. The first release consists of Nvidia version 181.71 beta drivers available in both 32-bit (94.6 MB) and 64-bit (110 MB).
