NVIDIA changes its driver distribution ways

NVIDIA changes its driver distribution ways

The green GPU company NVIDIA is getting ready to change the way it distributes its own drivers. Until now you could get new drivers from NVIDIA’s own web site or the GeForce.com web page or use GeForce Experience to get the latest software that powers your video card. This will be no more starting in December – instead new drivers will be distributed only through GeForce Experience.

NVIDIA claims that the reason for this controversial change is that about 90 per cent of all NVIDIA video card users get new drivers from GeForce Experience. While we do not know if this is true the change is here to stay. You will still be able to get NVIDIA drivers from the official web sites but they will be updated on a quarterly basis, which means that most users who prefer the old-fashioned way will likely have to use old drivers.

Recently AMD adopted a similar approach – the company used to release new Radeon drivers on a monthly basis but now it does so when there are important changes only. Alas, driver support for video cards seems to be weakening.
