Default Nvidia Finally Makes Mobile Graphics Drivers Available

Anyone who owns a laptop with an Nvidia mobile GPU knows you pretty much need to get yourself hacked drivers from a website such as laptopvideo2go.com to get the best performance out of your mobile GPU in games. Stock drivers are never optimal and official support from Nvidia was non existent due to custom functionality with hot keys and other laptop manufacturer specific issues regarding drivers.

Well Nvidia is now making available updated drivers for mobile GPUs on their website. This also includes making Nvidia's CUDA technology available to laptop owners with compatible GPUs. CUDA moves PhysX processing from the CPU to the GPU. This is great news for mobile gamers and another leap forward for Nvidia who is showing great signs of taking their business in new and innovative directions.
