Default Nvidia 173.63 WHQL for 6/7/8/9 Series Cards

Thought you guys might like to know that the new Forceware Nvidia 173.63 WHQL drivers from Nvidia have been "leaked". These are the first WHQL drivers for pre 9 series cards since DECEMBER.

Also note that these are FULLY compatible with the 9-series as well.

Here are the links. Thanks to nVision.

Please note that the original INF does not support all cards.


XP 32-bit: v175.63 XP 32bit | NVIDIA - Vantage - nVision

XP 64-bit: v175.63 XP 64bit | NVIDIA - Vantage - nVision

Vista 32-bit: v175.63 Vista 32bit | NVIDIA - Vantage - nVision

Vista 64-bit: v175.63 Vista 64bit | NVIDIA - Vantage - nVision


I have not tried these yet so post your experiences.

Great.thanks for the heads-up.

Hopefully will squeeze some more frames out the venerable 8800 GTX for future titles...

Never tried these, but I know 173.67 are good, 175.XX series are around even.

If you are worried then wait for them to show up on the Nvidia website within the next few days.
