New NVIDIA Drivers

The GeForce Drivers Pagenow offers new WHQL-certified version 306.97 reference drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards. There are the recommended drivers for the Windows 8 launch and add support for the new GeForce GTX 650 Ti accelerators. They add: "This driver is also recommended for the best experience in the latest top PC games like Borderlands 2 and World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria." Thanks HARDOCP.

16. Nvidia could make some more of the fat optional. Oct 11, 2012, 15:32 hb3d

Please point out where exactly they are inefficiently coded.
I'm not bothered by the driver size, but the Nvidia Control Panel should be an optional install like some of the other driver components (3DVision, PhysX, Update) but isn't. The Nvidia Control Panel is fairly large (installer is ~30MB) for how little it does and is redundant for users who use Riva Tuner or one of its sponsored OEM versions from EVGA (Precision), MSI (Afterburner), Gigabyte, etc.
