Polished drivers are critical to the success of any new operating system. Getting them out ahead of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows release is part of our effort to insure the PC remains the premier gaming and productivity platform.

The PC is the home of constant innovation. The combination of Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system with our new line of GeForce products, powered by the award-winning Kepler architecture, is going to provide PC users with an exceptional new lineup of extremely fast and fluid PCs.
