Haha, I laughed out loud. Are these the drivers that also support the 8800GTX/GTS? Regardless, grabbing!
Like I stated in the article, supportive drivers will be out today (Nov 8). Still checking right now whether a Beta will also be coming out, otherwise these drivers do support the 8800.
Ahh ok, I was confused there. The article said today, and then I seen these new drivers out. They sure like to release them close enough together ;-)
Not like I have an 8800GTX or anything... so not sure why I cared, heh.
Sadly the SLED 10 bug is still in there. Wonder why these new drivers don't work well with it. Maybe because they use an older version of Gnome? I've reinstalled / to make see if it was something I installed earlier causing it, but still no success.

I just bought an 8800GTX and it doesn't look like the 9629 drivers support it. The driver just tells me it failed to initialize the device. I don't see any newer drivers on nZone. Anyone know any more on this?
NVIDIA's PR department had specifically told me they would have drivers at nZone on launch day. So I guess just wait and see.
Got em, thanks. They're working OK so far.
If you can, report back with how its performing and any problems and any other comments. I know some users on here would be very interested.
