Hi mobilenvidia,

Oddly enough, Nvidia seems to have dropped support for DX9 and prior GPUs in their latest desktop driver release for Windows 8. That would be anything less than GeForce 8 in the above list.

Well, I do hope Geforce Go 7 series (namely the Go 7200) can be used through modified .inf files, or that might mean a friend of mine won't be able to use Windows 8.

As desktop 6.xxx series are supported in Win8, I don't see anything that might change the current situation re modified infs.

That's reason for relief :)

My main concern is that specific GPU is quite picky when it comes to drivers, despite not being locked down in terms of Device ID.

In any case, I'm going to let Windows 8 simmer a bit after RTM, and then I'll see how things will go.
