NVIDIA has just made available a new version of its Windows 7 / Vista / XP drivers with Microsoft WHQL certification. The 196.21s replace November’s WHQL and upgrade to the latest version (9.09.1112) of the PhysX API.

SLI support has been improved in this version as well as support for multi-GPU cards. Adds: Avatar , Battlefield: Bad Company 2, City Bus Simulator, Dirt 2, Ferrari Virtual Race, GREED: Black Border, Mass Effect 2, Mortal Online, Ninja Blade, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Demo, Planet 51, RUSE, Serious Sam HD, and Wings of Prey. Note also the correction of bugs as detailed in the release notes.

No great changes, then, but a welcome update nevertheless, especially as NVIDIA often gives us Beta drivers first. Owners of GeForces 6,7,8,9,100,200 and Ion GPUs can download the drivers from the following links:

- Windows 7 Vista (32 bits / 64 bits)
- Windows XP (32 bits / 64 bits)
