Big Bang 2 aka Geforce 180.48 WHQL
Nvidia doesn't just promises drastic performance benefits in current games like Far Cry 2 or Crysis Warhead, but also new features like, among other things, the support of SLI on Intel's X58 chipset, the option to use a dedicated graphics card for Physx and multi-monitoring features. You can find all changes listed in the Release Notes.
Physx, CUDA & Co.
All current Nvidia drivers deliver CUDA support. With CUDA Nvidia isn't just realizing Folding@Home on the GPU, but also Physx support and some drastic video enhancements soon. Thereby it is not important if you have a Geforce 8400 GS, 9400 GT or 9800 GTX+, since all of them are compatible. Something new on the other hand is the option to calculate GPU Physx on a dedicated graphics chip, while the primary graphics card renders the game itself. This feature can be activated in the driver. The 180.48 WHQL also installs the current Physx version 8.10.13.
