Default NVIDIA Posts GeForce 304.79 Beta Drivers, Unifies Windows 8 & Win7/Vista Drivers

NVIDIA has posted a new beta driver from their 304 family of drivers, version number 304.79.

The biggest change with 304.79 is that NVIDIA has officially unified their Windows 8 and Win7/Vista drivers into a single driver, which means Windows 8 is now on the same driver update schedule as the rest of the Windows 6.x family. This driver also enables official support for NVIDIA's new TXAA anti-aliasing mode (though no games currently support it), and fixes several issues including a hardware cursor issue that was prevelent in several MMOs.

New in 304.79 Drivers:

Adds support for NVIDIA TXAA
NVIDIA TXAA is new film-style anti-aliasing technique designed specifically to reduce temporal aliasing (crawling and flickering in motion) through a combination of hardware AA, custom CG film style AA resolve, and a temporal filter.
The Secret World is the first game to support TXAA (support will be enabled in an upcoming patch)..
TXAA is supported on GeForce GTX 600-series Kepler-based GPUs.
Learn more about TXAA on

New SLI Support

The Secret World - added
End of Nations - added
Nexuiz (also provided earlier via NVIDIA Update)
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier (also provided earlier via NVIDIA Update)
Tornado Force - added
Tribes: Ascend - updated

Key Fixes

Fixed a compatibility issue with Civilization V and GeForce 400/500 series GPUs
Fixed instances of flickering or missing mouse cursor when hardware cursor is enabled (reported with Aion, World of Warcraft, Eve Online and others).
Fixed instances of very low frame rates in Deus Ex: Human Revolution (DX11).
Fixed an issue that caused a PC reboot instead of a PC shut down.
Fixed an issue that led to a black screen after driver installation.
Power management mode settings now persist across driver overinstalls.

As always, you can grab the drivers straight from NVIDIA.
