  1. You can now download the 296.17 driver directly from NVidia rather than getting it off of Windows Updates as a cab file but NVidia still says that this driver is only for Windows 8 Consumer Preview, not for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 Developer Preview. Link to the download: http://www.nvidia.co...aspx?lang=en-us NVidia says that the 296.10 driver is the equivalent to the 296.17 driver and in my performance comparison tests they came out the same. If you're on Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 DP better just use the 296.10 driver.
  2. The 64-bit Windows 8 NVidia 296.17 driver for my GTX 580 card off Windows Updates has changed today. I already had the driver installed but today Windows Updates wanted to update it. We'll have to investigate to see if we can tell what changed. When it first came out it was an Optional Update with driver ID 200000362 located here: http://fg.v4.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/driver/drvs/2012/03/200000362_07dfffc4d95b942cc145cda2275ad422c9207b5c.cab Today it is an Important Update with driver ID 4915 and is about 1MB larger in size located here: http://fg.v4.download.windowsupdat

    Benchmarks: Windows 8 CP vs Windows 7

    It has been wondered if Windows 8 is going to be a better gaming platform for games than Windows 7. Heaven 3.0 Benchmark was recently released so it was used for this test. NVidia driver 296.17 was used for testing on both Windows versions even though NVidia recommends that particular driver for Windows 8 only. Test Machine: i7 975 cpu@4.22 GHz, GTX 580, 1920 x 1080 res, driver 296.17 Test Settings: 4x AA, 4x Anisotropic, High Textures, Ambient Occlusion off Scores - Min FPS - Avg FPS - Max FPS 2325 ------ 39.0 ------ 92.3 ------ 191.8 ------ Windows 8 DX 9, 1st run 2330 ------ 38.7 -----

    News of the Day - Mon March 12, 2012

    ZDNet came out with an interesting guide on customizing the Windows 8 Metro interface to make it look nice: http://www.zdnet.com...ame#photo-frame A Critical Windows Update to fix a nasty security flaw (remote code execution) in multiple versions of Windows will be out tomorrow so don't miss it. Battlefield 3 is on sale for a whopping 50% off this whole week over on the Origin site.
  5. This free utility will let you disable the Metro interface in Windows 8 Consumer Preview and it gives you the Windows 7 start menu instead. It is called Vistart. http://www.lee-soft.com/vistart/ But be careful when you install it because it wants to install some other stuff too if you don't decline it. Vistart gives you the option to have it startup with Windows or not. You can toggle back and forth between Metro and Windows 7 start menu interfaces when you want.
  6. Disable driver signature enforcement or Enable low-resolution video mode in Windows 8 Consumer Preview (Works with 64-bit) Select Settings (right bar)/More PC Settings (at bottom) Then go General/Advanced Startup/Restart Now/Troubleshoot/Advanced Options/Windows Startup Settings/Restart As your PC is starting up be pressing F8 to get to the menu where you can choose to Disable driver signature enforcement or Enable low-resolution video mode or Enable safe mode. Also do a search within Window Settings, find topic called Change Device Installation Settings, and choose your options. After
