NVIDIA Business Plattform Certification and corresponding drivers


®®®

Recommended Posts

The observant visitor of our NVIDIA 80 series release forum might have noticed that we are hosting NVIDIA Business Plattform drivers for Windows XP since the 26th of February. These were released and meant to be for OEM Business PCs that come with onboard graphic solutions by NVIDIA. The GPU used for this market is C51 with DEV_IDs ranging from 240 to 245.

For a short introduction to the NVIDIA Business plattform drivers you might want to read the complete article over at ExtremeTech.com which pretty detailed explains NVIDIA's step forward to the OEM market. Here's a short peek:

... Nvidia's program has certified four motherboard manufacturers: Asus, Foxconn, Gigabyte, and MSI. Each board contains either an AMD Athlon64 or Athlon X2 processor as well as an nForce 430 chipset, with an on-board GeForce 6150 graphics processor. Peripherals like hard drives and optical storage are left up to the discretion of the OEM...

For the interested one who may think (after reading the article linked above) these drivers were coded with stability in mind here's you're chance to try out. Despite UDA, be assured your GPU is not supported by the original INF included :) one of the reasons why usage of our modified INF is recommended for these drivers.

The releases so far (thanks to rflair for pointing us to these):

Just to let you guys know they have some tool on nvidia's site that tests for compliance or something, I ran it on my laptop just for kicks and I think it caused it to lock up, so be warned. (possibly while checking motherboard?)
