NVIDIA GeForce Release 180 drivers

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

If you run a GeForce 200-series, 9-series, or 8800-series desktop GPU then I've got some good news for you! The new NVIDIA GeForce Release 180 drivers should give your system a performance boost.

NVIDIA aren't shy about boasting about these drivers. The release highlights make some bold claims:

  • Up to 10% performance increase in 3DMark Vantage (performance preset)
    Up to 13% performance increase in Assassin's Creed
  • Up to 13% performance increase in BioShock
  • Up to 15% performance increase in Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
  • Up to 10% performance increase in Crysis Warhead
  • Up to 25% performance increase in Devil May Cry 4
  • Up to 38% performance increase in Far Cry 2
  • Up to 18% performance increase in Race Driver: GRID
  • Up to 80% performance increase in Lost Planet: Colonies
  • Up to 18% performance increase in World of Conflict

Testing I've done (in other words, time I spent gaming ) seems to suggest that NVIDIA have been able to deliver the goods when it comes to performance increases.

NVIDIA have also added some new features:

  • Enables NVIDIA SLI technology on SLI-certified Intel X58-based motherboards with the following GPUs: GeForce GTX 280, GeForce GTX 260, GeForce 9800 GX2, GeForce 9800 GTX+, and GeForce 9800 GTX.
  • Enables NVIDIA SLI Multi-monitor support, giving you the ability to use two monitors with your GeForce graphics cards in SLI mode. Now you can easily switch between multi-monitor desktop mode and full screen 3D gaming mode.
  • Enables NVIDIA PhysX acceleration on a dedicated GeForce graphics card. Use one card for graphics and dedicate a different card for PhysX processing for game-changing physical effects.
