    New NVIDIA Drivers Released

    NVIDIA has released a new set of display drivers. Neverinter Nights fans should hold up on installing these driver as the game is unplayable after installing these drivers. Changes in this release include:

    * Supports latest GeForce FX and Quadro FX GPUs
    * Added support for UBB and FSAA Stereo.
    * Improved GLXPixmap support.
    * Added support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0.
    * Added support for GLX_SGI_swap_control.
    * Reduced CPU usage when OpenGL applications are syncing to vblank.
