    ForceWare WinXP 32bit Links

    For the latest WinXP 32bit ForceWare w/ support for all non-mobile GPUs (GeForce 5-9):

    http://nf2.stuff.googlepages.com/

    beta = originally beta status and needed INF modification to support all cards

    beta* = originally WHQL status and needed INF modification to support all cards

    beta** = originally beta status and needed no INF modification (original INF supported all cards already)

    Note: the driver INFs that require modification are in no way "tweaked". The only changes are added DeviceIDs to support all cards and/or removal of mobile-related entries (if the original INF had mobile GPU DeviceIDs only) and/or removal of International-related entries (if the original driver was available for International only). Some of the drivers may also show an "xFastest" splash screen during install instead of the usual "nvidia" (they were not replaced to give credit to the leaker of the drivers).

    WARNING: If you own a G92 8800 (GT, GTS 512, GS), anything lower than 174.53 (w/ the exception of 174.12) will most likely cause BSODs and other problems. G80 8800 (GTX, GTS, Ultra) can use any of the below drivers without problems.

    174.31 is from Dell and has to be modified inorder to work w/ anything other than mobile GPUs. I compared this particular driver to each of the other non-mobile 174 series drivers and modified accordingly (to match). As is the case w/ most leaked drivers there are no release notes for 174.31 or any of the others except 174.16 WHQL: http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/174.16/174.16_NVIDIA_WinXP_Release_Notes.pdf

    Looks like another 174 series driver will be released soon w/ the launch of 9800GTX:

    Hopefully someone will leak it before the 25th.

    Edit: In the meantime, this post might be useful (8800 Ultra):

    Ah, just a heads-up for the Team Fortress 2 players, the 174.31's (32bit - XP ones) crash me every 5 minutes.

    On the 174.16's now and everything's all good.

    Good luck :banana:

    Yeah, the G92-based 8800s and the latest 174 drivers don't mix. 174.12 has been confirmed by multiple 8800GT owners to work (and I see Tenma is using 174.16) but anything after that is problematic. Some 8800GT owners in the 174.51 Vista thread has posted that it works, but there is no XP version of it.

    Bump for 174.53. This WHQL Candidate driver only supports 9600GT and 9800GX2 and has the "Portal" stuff like 169.44. Hopefully, this one is not problematic for G92 8800. I'll add some more mirrors later. BTW, the International version of this driver from NV has an English-only setup INF file (I've replaced it w/ an International version).

    Edit: NV has re-released this driver w/ a new date of 03/25/2008 (on their download page). The INF has the same date as the original WHQL candidate and the previously released WHQL version, so probably the same driver.

    Yo, the 174.53 really does seem stable again on GF8 cards, the 174.40 was unstable at 1440x900 on Crysis, stable for everything else....

    Here are some benchmarks. See the small decrease at 1440xxx res, maybe there was a bug in 174.40.

    Nice bench, I've copied your post to 2 other forums where I've posted this thread.

    Bump for 174.60. This is an International beta driver dated 03/12/2008 that supports mobile GPUs only. I have created an English version, removed all mobile-related files and INF entries, and added all 174.20/174.53 DeviceIDs to support all cards.

    Edit: Station has a WHQL version of 174.31 for those of you who care about that sort of thing: http://www.station-drivers.com/page/nvidia forceware.htm

    WHQL for most 6,7,8,9 cards and has the same date (02/22/2008) as the beta one in this thread, so probably the same driver.

    Bump for 174.70. This International beta dated 03/19/2008 supports all cards GF 5-9 already (no INF mod needed). I've also created an English version.
