1 – R265.90 Driver

NVIDIA R265.90 is a WHQL driver intended for the new Quadro NVS 300 (16 CUDA cores, 512MB DDR3 / 64-bit, TDP: 17.3W, OpenGL 3.3). But with a modded inf file (you can find it at laptopvideo2go, follow the links below), you can install it on every recent GeForce (GTX 4xx, GTX 580).

R265.90 prepares the arrival of Windows 8. At the line 713 of the original inf (Win7 64-bit) file we can read:

%NVIDIA_WIN8% = NVIDIA_SetA_Devices,NTamd64.6.0,NTamd64.6.1,NTamd64.6.2

And at line 2757:

DiskID1 = “NVIDIA Windows Vista / 7 / 8 (64 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1”
