NVIDIA To Provide Direct Graphics Updates for Notebooks

NVIDIA is spreading the word that its making drivers for its graphics chips used in Notebooks available on its website. It will soon be possible to bypass the middleman, your notebook vendor, and go straight to the source.

Your first download will add NVIDIA’s CUDA functionality notebooks equipped with GeForce 8 and 9-series GPUs or Quadro NVS-equipped notebooks. Gamers sporting any of the GeForce 7, 8, and 9 series and Quadro NVS series notebook GPUs will be covered with WHQL-certified versions early 2009. Read the full article on ExtremeTech for more details.

I’m all for this considering my vendor notebook update is very inconsistent. Chip sets are abandoned frequently so going straight to the manufacturer is ideal.
