Nvidia launches new notebook drivers

by on12 February 2009


Hybrid SLI, Mobile 7-series support


It seems like Nvidia has been quite busy lately, as we're hearing news about the company on all market fronts – ranging from great ones like the ION platform, to the not-so-great ones such as their product re-branding. This time however, the company launched 179.48 drivers for Geforce mobile graphics.

The drivers are available for Vista and XP in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and will introduce compatibility with Geforce 7 mobile graphics, something that users have apparently missed alot. More importantly however, the drivers will introduce Hybrid SLI, something that's rumored to be on the way out, but Nvidia apparently isn't keen on letting go of. Note that only 9M GPUs work with Hybrid SLI.

Nvidia has also added support for GeForce 9400M integrated graphics chipsets, but don't get overexcited as the company says this release won't work with BenQ Joybook S42, Dell Vostro, Fujitsu, Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi 3650, Lenovo ThinkPad, and Sony VAIO notebooks, which is quite a hefty list.
