NVIDIA on an Impulse

NVIDIA and Stardock announce plans for a special NVIDIA-branded version of Impulse, Stardock's "digital download platform." The NVIDIA version of Impulse will offer the online marketplace and other functions of Impulse, along with the ability to automatically detect and update drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards, and they quote Stardock's Brad Wardell saying: "The single biggest issue preventing PC gamers today from having an optimal experience is a failure to update their video card drivers." We're not sure about that, but we are surprised an auto-update function hasn't been part of normal graphics drivers for years now, even if driver updates are not quite as complicated as the CEO and president of Stardock would have us believe: "For many users, updating video drivers has been a complicated and sometimes confusing experience."

If you are for stability why are you installing modded driver versions?

Because they've been better to me.
