Nvidia released today the latest Quadro and Tesla drivers for their graphics cards. In case you don’t own such a card and want to test them, all you’ll have to do is to download a modified .INF file and install them. Among other things, these new drivers include the NVIDIA WMI, a Windows service as well as decouple WMI provider that allows WMI clients to query and monitor such GPU parameters as GPU fan speed and GPU temperature. You can view the download links after the jump.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
