Software Description

Windows 2000/XP (standard 32 bit)

Attention - this is the OLD download section of, click here to visit the new and up-to date one.

Station drivers got hold of the WHQL version of these 81.26 ForceWare drivers. The binaries themselves are dated at August 26, 2005 and 100% similar to the previous beta release, mind you that to preserve the Microsoft WHQL tag only GeForce 6 and upwards are supported in this release. Should we include a modified .inf file to make it compatible with all geForce card then the WHQL tag wouln not be valid anymore, which brings you to the same release as the mentioned beta. The driver runs okay and is now doing a set of benchmarks on a GeForce 7800 GTX based system. The driver is compatible with most GeForce graphics card.

The drivers have been recompressed to save on file-size and are at a lovely 16 MB. These drivers come with a setup.exe for easy installing and contain all international languages support.

Remember, although WHQL these are beta drivers. Don't complain if they do not work good on your system.
