    Nvidia WHQL 182.08 drivers release

    If you're an Nvidia GPU owner and use Windows, then you might want to go download the now WHQL-certified 182.08 GeForce driver package. Nothing has changed between the last two releases other than the certification, but as usual the package contains bug fixes and performance boosts from earlier revisions. For those using up to date non-WHQL drivers there is really no reason to update at this time, but if you are using an older driver package there's no need to worry about compatibility issues now.

    The most notable change in 182.08 was SLI support for a handful of newer games, support for the newest GeForce GTS 250 card and full OpenGL 3.0 support for GeForce 8, 9 and 200 series cards. This version also introduced PhysX acceleration on GeForce 8, 9 and 200 series, provided you have at least 256MB of GPU memory.

    Lets get some about Nvidia WHQL 182.08:-
    • Performance enhancements with the release of 182 WHQL and up:
    • Up to 8% performance increase in Fallout 3 at high resolution and AA.
    • Up to 10% performance increase in F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.
    • Up to 9% performance increase in Half-Life 2 at high resolution with AA.
    • Up to 11% performance increase in Left 4 Dead at high resolution with AA.
    • Up to 10% performance increase in Race Driver: GRID at high resolution and AA.
    • Includes full support for OpenGL 3.0 on GeForce 8-series, 9-series, and 200-series GPUs.
    • Automatically installs the new PhysX System Software version 9.09.0203.

    • Predicted performance increases (from 178.24 WHQL):
    • Up to 10% performance increase in 3DMark Vantage (performance preset)
    • Up to 13% performance increase in Assassin's Creed
    • Up to 13% performance increase in BioShock
    • Up to 15% performance increase in Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
    • Up to 10% performance increase in Crysis Warhead
    • Up to 25% performance increase in Devil May Cry 4
    • Up to 38% performance increase in Far Cry 2
    • Up to 18% performance increase in Race Driver: GRID
    • Up to 80% performance increase in Lost Planet: Colonies
    • Up to 18% performance increase in World of Conflict
