Default NVIDIA Big Bang II nothing more than Driver Update

WHAT DO YOU do when you suddenly find yourself in second place, trailing badly with no hope for the rest of the year? You stop artificially crippling your drivers and spin it to the users as magnanimous, welcome to Nvidia's Big Bang II.

The obvious inference is to 'Big Bang', aka the SLI introduction, which was a big deal. Big Bang II is simply not. It is the code name for Release 180 drivers, and they are coming from September 08 to February 09.

R180 has five bullet points, 10-bit displayport support, OpenGL 3.0, SLI on multi-monitors, transcoding on the GPU, and some performance 'optimizations' over R177. Come autumn, they will be catching up to ATI on several key checkboxes, this is a big bang?

Nvidia has been letting their drivers go to crap, so thank god they decided to focus on that instead of launching yet another product.
