Nvidia GeForce 326.01 WHQL Windows 8.1 Preview Released – Compatible With Windows Vista & 7

Nvidia Kepler
Nvidia’s ManuelG and Guru3D have released a new driver for the green team’s graphics cards. Nvidia’s GeForce 326.01 WHQL is the first driver supporting Microsoft’s newest OS, Windows 8.1, and is compatible with both Windows Vista and Windows 7. As always, some players have reported better framerates in a number of games, while others reported various issues and crashes.
According to ManuelG, Nvidia will release an unified driver in July. Until then, though, we do not expect any new WHQL or Beta driver (well, that is if someone does not leak one).
Those interested can download the GeForce 326.01 WHQL from here.
We don’t have any release notes or changelog for this new set of drivers, but here is what ManuelG suggested over at Guru3D:
“Since a few users have reported this driver did not show up in their Windows Update, we are releasing them separately so that users may have access to them. If you already installed these drivers and are not experiencing any issues, you do not need to reinstall these drivers below. If however you did not see this driver through Windows Update and had to install a modified version, we ask that you first attempt a clean install using the driver below. Many support cases we receive from end users are easily solved by performing a clean install.”
Have fun!
