Not exactly, they added support for a few things and the fact that they are WHQL now. Other then that, yes they are the same with identical fixes etc.

Here's one way that doesn't depend on installed NVIDIA software:

(can be useful in some cases, like if you don't have the NVIDIA Control Panel installed or is coming across the version number somewhere else)

Start Menu -> Run -> type "dxdiag" + Enter. Flip to the "Dispaly" tab and in the "Drivers" group, see the "Version" text. It should say something like "7.15.0011.6375 (English)". Then think of that number as "7.15.0011.6375" and move the period two steps so you get it before the last two digits. You'll then get 163.75, which is my Forceware version in this case. You can do this same "trick" in the Device Manager too, btw.

Another way that depends on NVIDIA software is to start the NVIDIA Control Panel, click "System Information" and in the "Details" list box see "ForceWare version" that shows the version number in clear text.

Good idea!

Who needs bugfixes anyway?

Should I upgrade?
