Nvidia G80 Vista drivers don't materialise in 2006

WE KNEW that Nvidia and everyone else targeted DirectX10 for next year but we and dozens of G80 users are frustrated as we don’t even have buggy drivers for the new OS yet. We at least expected some beta in 2006 but this driver has been more than delayed.

Nvidia is playing stall until it's ready tactics but is getting a lot of criticis about it. People had time over the Yule break and all G80 owners can forget about Aero glass for Yule and New Year.

Im really not surprised. Ive found near XMAS companies can really slow down so im not surprised that driver support isnt properly sorted yet.

Aww boohoo Inquirer, boohoo. This is why I don't buy brand spanking new technology until the kinks are worked out. Aero works fine on my 7900GT KO
