[Frontpage News]ATi Windows XP Pro x64 Official Drivers
« on: April 29, 2005, 08:33:46 AM »
I applaud ATi for being the first company to offer "official" 64-bit drivers for the non-beta Windows 64-bit OS.  It would be interesting to see these perform an a good 64-bit system running games that support 64-bit registers.  Now that Windows XP 64 is official, we may see more of that in the future, but I'm not holding my breath.  Get the drivers over here[/. . .

This is just there last release.

Oops on that one, Nvidia been supporting 64bit for long time.

Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition
Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

Version: 71.84
Release Date: March 11, 2005
WHQL Certified

I think both companies have been supporting 64-bit drivers for a while.  I thought that ATi was the first to release WHQL certified 64-bit drivers though.  I could be wrong on that however.

EDIT:  You're right.  I just checked out nVidia's driver page here, and they've had WHQL x64 drivers since March 11, 2005.  I didn't realize you could have WHQL drivers for an OS that itself wasn't WHQL or final.
