Nvidia have released their drivers for Windows Vista RTM finally.

Version 97.46 can be downloaded from here:

Vista x86: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_97.46.html
Vista x64: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x64_97.46.html

These do not include the DX10 drivers for the 8800.

I am on holiday still so look forward to downloading these when I get home. For what I hear OpenGL support is much improved.

still no drivers for the notebook go 7 series cards though I see.

Nvidia = useless

Yes they were leaked quite some time ago.

I never installed them as the leaked drivers performed worse than the earlier RC2 ones in many scenarios.

Do you have the official release? If so a run down on the performance would be great

I'm going to do some testing using benchmarks and post the results. Unfortunately, all my games are pretty old by now (Doom 3, UT2004, Splinter Cell) so can only do limited testing in that respect.

Suggestions for what to check out would be welcome. :)

If you have any OpenGL games checking out how they perform with 8x AA etc would be great

Yeah that should be fine. I have a few OpenGL games so this is important for me.

If I recall you have similar specs to me and a 128Mb 6600GT card.
