Negli ultimi gironi del 2007 stati resi disponibili per il download numerosi nuovi driver per schede video basate su GPU NVIDIA e ATI; la loro particolarità è quella di non essere versioni ufficiali certificate WHQL ma sia beta che optimized, basate cioè su release di driver ufficiali che sono state modificate e integrate con vari tweaks.

I primi 3 driver sono per schede video NVIDIA delle serie GeForce 6, 7 e 8; si tratta della versione 169.28 dei driver Forceware, per sistemi operativi Windows XP 32bit, Windows Vista 32bit e Windows Vista 64bit. Il download è disponibile dai link seguenti:

Forceware 169.28 Windows XP 32bit

Forceware 169.28 Windows Vista 32bit

Forceware 169.28 Windows Vista 64bit

A seguire 3 versioni di driver Optimized Omegadriver, una per schede video ATI Radeon basata sulla revision 7.12 dei driver Catalyst e le due restanti basate sui driver Forceware per schede video NVIDIA in versioni per sistemi oeprativi a 32bit, sia Windows XP che Windows Vista. Di seguito i link diretti per il download con le note fornite a corredo.

Omegadriver NVIDIA 1.169.21 per Windows 2K-XP

What's New in Omega Drivers?
v2.169.21

* Based on the Forceware 169.21 Official drivers.

+ Added resolutions not available on normal drivers and tweaked some that where.

* Added new D3D/OGL tweaks and removed obsolete ones.

- Removed all extra tools, only the drivers and Nvidia Control Panel are included.

* Lots of other internal changes that I can't remember, been too long from last release, hehe.

Known Issues:
Since this is my first nvidia driver's release in years and I have been working hard on the website, some features will not be available at the moment, like for example, laptop support, yeah, sorry, but I had to cut something out in order to make the release on time with the new website. Don't worry thou, laptop support will be back on next release for sure or in a possible re-release of the 169.21 drivers, that will depend on how fast nvidia releases their next WHQL set.

Omegadriver NVIDIA 1.169.25 per Windows Vista 32bit

What's New in Omega Drivers?
v1.169.25

* Based on the Forceware 169.25 Official drivers.

+ Added resolutions not available on normal drivers and tweaked some that where.

* Added D3D/OGL tweaks.

+ My first Omega Drivers release for Windows Vista.

Known Issues:
Since this is my first nvidia driver's release for Vista and I have been working hard on the website, some features will not be available at the moment, like for example, laptop support, yeah, sorry, but I had to cut something out in order to make the release on time with the new website. Don't worry thou, laptop support will be added on next release for sure or in a possible re-release of the 169.25 drivers, that will depend on how fast nvidia releases their next WHQL set.

Other Important Notes:

* The drivers can be installed just by upgrading your current drivers, that is, when changing between the same driver series, for example: 16x.xx->16x.xx, 17x.xx->17x.xx, etc.

* If you are changing from one series to another, ex 16x.xx->17x.xx, it is recommended that you use uninstall previous drivers before upgrading, this is done to prevent possible issues between driver series.

* When possible use default settings.

* Always make sure you have the latest chipset drivers for your MB or your laptop installed, this will prevent compatibility issues and other problems in games.

Omegadriver 4.8.442 Win 2K-XP

What's New in Omega Drivers?
v4.8.442

[*] Based on the Catalyst 7.12 Official drivers.

[*] Major video card support rewrite from scratch. This time every Radeon card under the sun should be supported, if the divers don't install on your card you either have a freak of nature card or a card too new that not even the ATI has support for it. ;) (Many thanks to all the people that sent their unsupported IDs)

[+] Added support for desktop HD3k Series and laptop HD2k Series.

[+] Experimental Gamma settings. Now whatever gamma setting you set on your desktop should pass on to your 3D applications. (tested with Adobe Gamma)

[+] The "temporary" fix for AGP cards still included. Waiting for ATI releases an official fix... *sigh*

[*] Upgraded installer to reflect logo/site changes.

[*] Upgraded drivers to v4 because of the previous details, plus thanks to a new install method I found, reduced the driver's size by a lot without loosing any features or options.

Known Issues:
1) After installing the drivers you will notice that they give you version number 3.8.442 instead or 4.8.442, no need to worry, is just a typo, sorry about that, I added the new version number when I was building the new installer and totally forgot about the driver build, since it was already compiled.

2) For the 2D->3D gamma trick to work properly you must NOT run CCC (if you have it installed); when CCC is open it forces it's own gamma settings overriding any gamma you have set using a 3rd party tool. If you happen to open CCC by mistake, in order to recover the gamma correction values, you only need to run whatever gamma program you use and gamma should be back to your settings again.

3) Since Overscan has been from the drivers, if you need to connect your PC to a regular TV that DOES need overscan in order to view it properly, you need to install the official CCC Control Panel from ATI after my drivers so you have access to the new "scaling" feature and scale the overscan to fit your needs.

4) From Cat 6.6 and up ATI removed driver-level support for the following series of cards (including Mobility models): Radeon 7k, 8k, 9k-9250 Series. Since the Omega Drivers use ATI drivers as a base, that means they will also not include support for these chipsets, they may install, but the PC may give you a BSOD or a black screen upon boot, install newer drivers at your own risk. People that need to install Omega Drivers on these cards should use v3.8.252 or older, you can get these on the Archive section of my site.

What's new for ATI Tray Tools?
1.3.6.1067 Beta

[F] Fixed localization for CrossFire dialog window

[*] Updated ini files handling procedures to be more compatible with Windows Vista

[*] Improved compatibility with IE7 under Vista with UAC enabled???

[+] Added new localizations

[+] Added option to change "Black and White level"

[F] Fixed OSD rendering problem with Overlord game. (Thanks to Unwinder)

[+] Updated Overlay color handling procedure to support new ATI Overlay color modes

[+] Implemented Save/Restore icon positions under WinXP 64 and Vista 64.

[+] Updated support for Adaptive AntiAliasing. Added support Multi-Samplinmg and Super-Sampling modes

[+] Monitoring Graphs window now can be sent to system tray.

[+] Added option to auto load Monitoring Graphs window at start up

[+] Added option to hide tray icon on load. You can restore icon to access settings by starting ATT again. This will not load second copy of ATT in memory, but will send command to show tray icon. Also created new hotkey to hide and show tray icon.

[+] Added configuration option hide_display to hide Displays menu.

Per chi possiede un portatile consiglio vivamente: http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/
La famiglia 156.xx per nVidia per esempio è eccellente per i laptop.
