Windows drivers version 190.56 and Linux drivers version 190.18.03 provide beta support for OpenGL 3.2 and GLSL 1.50 (as well as full OpenGL 3.0/3.1 and GLSL 1.30/1.40 support). The driver download links are at the bottom of this page.

OpenGL 3.2 Driver Release Notes

You will need one of the following graphics cards to get access to the OpenGL 3.2 and GLSL 1.50 functionality:

Desktop

* Quadro FX 370, 570, 1700, 3700, 4600, 4700x2, 4800, 5600, 5800, Quadro VX200, Quadro CX

* GeForce 8000 series or higher; Geforce G100, GT120, 130, 220, GTS 150, Geforce GTS 250, GeForce GTX 260, 280, 285 and 295, any ION based products.

Notebook

* Quadro FX 360M, 370M, 570M, 770M, 1600M, 1700M, 2700M, 3600M, 3700M

* GeForce 8000 series or higher

This driver supports all of OpenGL 3.2 and GLSL 1.50, except for the following:

* Geometry shaders as part of the core. You can use the ARB_geometry_shader extension instead

* glXCreateContextAttribsARB() does not yet support the GLX_CONTEXT_PROFILE_MASK_ARB attribute value. In order to create a Core profile context, call glXCreateContextAttribsARB(), request OpenGL 3.2 as the version, and leave the GLX_CONTEXT_PROFILE_MASK_ARB attribute out. In order to create an OpenGL 3.2 Compatibility profile context, call the "old" glXCreateContext() entrypoint. Note: wglCreateContextAttribsARB() does support WGL_CONTEXT_PROFILE_MASK_ARB.

This driver exposes the following new extensions:

For OpenGL 2.1 capable hardware:

* ARB_fragment_coord_conventions

* ARB_provoking_vertex

* ARB_vertex_array_bgra

* ARB_depth_clamp

For OpenGL 3 capable hardware:

* WGL_ARB_create_context (updated to create profiles)

* GLX_ARB_create_context (updated to create profiles)

* GL_EXT_separate_shader_objects

* GL_NV_parameter_buffer_object2

* GL_NV_copy_image.txt

I've been meaning to ask: where are you finding these drivers? I've checked nVidia's public site, both the consumer and developer subsections, and have been unable to find this release there (the same goes for 190.40, and many earlier versions reported here).

Well guys? ANyone load this up? How is the set? Am I going to have to do it? Can I ask anymore questions?

I tried loading this driver on my Dell Precision M2400 running Windows 7 RC 64-bit and it wouldn't not install, not recognizing my Nvidia Quadro 370M even though the notes mention it as being supported.

Those are desktop model you got to wait for the INF mod.

The documentation is misleading as it mentions OpenGL and mobile cards; the driver itself is a desktop one. (I thought that it would support mu FX 1600M, too...)

It's cos they are developer drivers, to tell them what they can code for using them.

Just got em on Vista 64 SP2 and gained 2 fps in DoW II benchmark over 190.38 which is nice. I haven't done anything else other than poke through the control panel, but the driver seems to be working fine.

Did they fix that powermizer flickering bug in this version tho?

Guys, i'm having a couple of problems with tuning up my video card and installing drivers and stuff like that.

Well, to begin with, its a 9600mGT on a 17inch macbook pro unibody.

At first glance and using fan control to boost up the fans, it works amazingly fast and under controlled temperatures of 40-55 celsius even when its been put specially busy visual rendering...

But well, there are no special drivers for the card by nVidia, at least not for Mac OSX... Once you start up windows (bootcamp), its just the same as a normal notebook... In theory.

I've downloaded the latest versions of drivers from nvidia for this particular graphics card, and nTuner, wich is a NVIDIA application, and as soon as I try to unlock the tweaking parts of the application, the system crashes...

I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit version to make the most out of the 8gb of ram.

Now, the thing is... I have been a PC gamer all my life, but for financial and work-related reasons, I had to sell my desktop in order to get enough cash for my mac, and I'm happy with the results (work-wise), but I'm not sure if its a Windows Vista 64 problem or if it has something to do with the hardware, but I just CANT seem to be able to make any kind of overclocking software work properly on bootcamp. I was used to a 8800gtx on my old desktop and from what I've heard, overclocking the 9600mGT wont get the same results, but the overall performance should be the same as I had before (or slightly higher) since the entire machine is "better".

Story aside, I just dont know what I need to download (driver and forcewares) and what kind of softwares I should use. nTuner literally crashes windows as soon as it tries to open the tweaking menu. RivaTuner on the other hand, I just downloaded, but didn't actually test yet. I cant seem to find a decent tutorial as to what I should do while overclocking with this particular software.

I would REALLY appreciate some help with all this...

Thanks a lot, guys.

Best regards

Ok, updating my last post (the guest just up there):

RivaTuner seems not to like me as well... I've taken my time into following a specific tutorial made by a friend who has the same graphics card (but not an "Apple-flavored" one) and doesnt matter what I do, RivaTuner just keeps telling me there's no support for the driver installed in my system.

I did uninstall the official driver and installed a modified one (the same used by my friend) before making a run at Riva, and yes I did try to make Riva force the use of the driver, but it still didn't work.

Any thoughts? ;/

Frustrating to have a nice machine that could potentially run pretty much all my games up top (or close) and not be able to get it to run like that because of a driver with a bad case of not-liking humans... ;o

Benchmarkwise for me a little slower.
