Nvidia confirmed that it has the first set of WHQL-certified Windows 8 drivers for its desktop graphics cards available.
According to Nvidia, the driver supports the new Windows 8 display driver model WDDM 1.2 and should not be used on Windows 7 and Windows Vista systems. It's not a flawless driver and the company notes that GT 520 users will see flickering in DirectX applications when launched with FXAA turned on from the Nvidia Control Panel.
As with previous 302 driver releases, this version also supports Nvidia's GeForce 8, 9, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and 600-series desktop GPUs as well as ION desktop GPUs. The driver requires a minimum of 200 MB (English, 32-bit), and a maximum of 360 MB (64-bit, international) of space.
