Today we posted our first Release 270 WHQL-certified driver for GeForce GPUs, including an equivalent Verde driver for notebook PCs. Version 270.61 is available for download on GeForce.com.
For those that previously installed the v270.51 beta which included the new NVIDIA Update software, you will automatically get a notification on your PC for this new WHQL-certified driver.
First WHQL driver release since January, at least for the 400 series cards.

I hope the performance increase for the GTX 570 is similar to the one of 580. I could really use that increase.
