    NVidia has just released the 185.85 WHQL drivers for I guess all platforms (including notebooks).

    Testing right now !

    NVIDIA just released a bucketload of new drivers for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. These drivers are all WHQL certified. This is a WHQL-Certified driver supporting GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100, and 200-series desktop GPUs and ION.
    New in Release 185 drivers:
    • Adds support for the new GeForce GTX 275 GPU.
    • Adds support for CUDA 2.2 for improved performance in GPU Computing applications. See CUDA for more details.
    • Expands GPU hardware acceleration for the NVIDIA Video Encoding library to GPUs with less than 32 cores. Applications using this library include CyberLink PowerDirector 7, Nero Move it 1.5, Loilo SuperLoiloScope MARS, and CyberLink MediaShow Espresso.
    • Accelerates performance in several 3D applications. The following are examples of improvements measured with Release 185 drivers vs. Release 182 drivers (results will vary depending on your GPU, system configuration, and game settings):
      • Up to 25% performance increase in The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
      • Up to 22% performance increase in Crysis: Warhead with antialiasing enabled
      • Up to 11% performance increase in Fallout 3 with antialiasing enabled
      • Up to 14% performance increase in Far Cry 2
      • Up to 30% performance increase in Half-Life 2 engine games with 3-way and 4-way SLI
      • Up to 45% performance increase in Mirror’s Edge with antialiasing enabled
    • Automatically installs the new PhysX System Software version 9.09.0408.
    • Supports GeForce Plus Power Pack #3. Download these FREE PhysX and CUDA applications now!
    • Numerous bug fixes. Refer to the release documentation notes.
    • Users without US English operating systems can select their language and download the International driver.

    From page 5 of the docs...

    Note: The NVIDIA Control Panel erroneously reports the PhysX software version
    as 9.09.0203. If you have installed graphics driver version 185.85, then the
    NVIDIA PhysX software installed is version 9.09.0408.

    Okay, but hovering over the extracted 9.09.0408 physx installer also says it still is 9.09.0203 so that is the reason CP is giving the wrong version?

    What driver do the release notes compare this one to? Those look like big boosts, but it's all relative...
