Software Description

nVidia's own control panel is not always very intuitive to use. Especially the 3D rendering settings are very cryptic and difficult to navigate. Even the new control panel introduced with the 9x.xx line of Forceware drivers isn't a real improvements for these problems. nHancer is a tool to improve the usage of these features.

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

There's a new final out of nHancer, which apparently addresses some important Forceware 185.xx issues.

But it's such a powerful and handy tool, even for the average guy. So another aspect of nHancer is to improve the handling of those profiles by adding many features that the normal control panel doesn't offer at all and improving the ones that it does offer.

Important notes
This version requires .NET 3.5! and ONLY works with drivers from the 185 series or those > than (e.g. 185.66/68, 186.xx, etc.)

New features in version 2.5.1

  • Compatible with GeForce 182 and 185 drivers
  • Fully compatible with Windows 7
  • Added Ambient Occlusion settings (needs 185 drivers)
  • Added new SLI Anti-Aliasing modes
  • Reworked card detection to use the official API provided by nVidia (NVAPI)
  • Completely new "Show GPU info" output
  • "Compatibility" settings tab splitted into separate Direct3D and OpenGL sections
  • Other user interface tweaks
  • Switched to .NET 3.5
  • Removed support for older drivers (pre 182) and older cards (pre GeForce 8000)
  • Bugfixes

Special handling of cards prior to the G80 (8x00 line) has been removed.

nHancer will still work with older cards, but not all Anti-Aliasing options will work correctly with them.
