Nvidia made available a new WHQL driver per Windows 10. I driver GeForce 353.62 for Windows 10 they support GPUs from the 400 series onwards, although not all GPUs are fully compatible. The company does know that Fermi GPUs (400, 500 and some 600 series) currently do not support WDDM 2.0. These cards will fall back to WDDM 1.3 mode, at least for the foreseeable future. The Kepler and Maxwell GPUs instead offer WDDM 2.0 and DirectX 12 support. The drivers do not miss some new SLI profiles and the improvement of other existing ones.


The US firm also recently published a support article explaining that Windows 10 supports only one mode (WDDM 2.0 or 1.3) at a time. The WDDM mode loaded will depend on the video card that first performs the power-on self-test (POST) at boot time. For this reason Fermi GPUs and Kepler / Maxwell GPUs cannot be inserted in the same system. Someone might want to do it to dedicate an old video card to an extra monitor or to use it in the management of PhysX technology.

Finally, too Intel presented drivers for Windows 10 related to its own GPU integrate (Iris, Iris Pro, and HD Graphics) in fourth and fifth generation Core, Pentium, and Celeron CPUs. In addition to support for Microsoft's new operating system and DirectX 12, the new drivers offer full compatibility with DirectX 11.3, PlayReady 3 and Miracast.
