Y570 updated graphics card driver

2011-08-27, 15:22 PM

I recently purchused a Y570 which has the Nvidia 555m chipset in it. I have the newest driver from the lenovo site, but it is months out of date with the mainline Nvidia driver tree (260.xx vs 280.xx). Are plans in the works for releasing an updated driver, and more specifically keeping it updated with the mainline Nvidia driver tree?

 

I use this laptop for gaming and CUDA development, and very much so want to keep my graphics drivers up to date. 

 

Thanks

Hm, I installed nvidia driver v280 without any difficulties. I downloaded it from nvidia website directly and installed it without changing anything in it, unlike v275 drivers - in order to install them you had to change one line in one of the ini files.

I see they updated the drivers to actually install. For in the future what did you change in the .ini file incase that comes back?
