|One of the major topics of discussion for the last two weeks was Nvidia preparing a driver codenamed "Big Bang II" for introduction in September. In case you didnt know, Nvidia's first driver for SLI came with "Big Bang I", so naturally people assumed that this must be something similar & significant, in case you didnt believe the codename.
Release 180 is the official name for Big Bang II driver. Among other features like DisplayPort support, OpenGL 3.0, GPU transcoding, Multi-monitor support for SLI, Nvidia is also preparing for optimizations that will help Nvidia be more competitive to the Radeon 4800 series. As far as we are aware of the performance optimizations are mainly geared towards the GTX 200 series with the 9800 series getting a much needed boost as well.
