Recently NVIDIA has released new versions of their drivers, and this can only mean two things: either they are working really hard in improving their existing drivers, or they have not stopped finding problems and have to do releases solving them. This time, NVIDIA has deployed new GeForce 326.41 drivers in its Beta phase, which is now available to download.
This time it is a driver for developers, and it appears that adds support for OpenGL 4.3. It also allows devs to use the famous Shield NVIDIA handheld game console to stream power, and on the other hand is recommended for users of Windows 8.1 preview.
