NVIDIA branded version of Impulse announced

NVIDIA and Stardock have announced a special Impulse 'NVIDIA Edition' which will be specially branded for NVIDIA users. Gamers will be able to be informed of video card driver updates and install them via Stardock's Impulse. Users will also use Impulse to see the latest gaming news and purchase and download PC games straight from Impulse.

"The single biggest issue preventing PC gamers today from having an optimal experience is a failure to update their video card drivers," said Brad Wardell, CEO and president of Stardock. "For many users, updating video drivers has been a complicated and sometimes confusing experience. As PC game developers ourselves, we recognized those concerns and, in partnership with NVIDIA, have taken a step to make the process more accessible."

Stardock is a member of the NVIDIA developer program. The two companies have worked in partnership since 2002 when Stardock created a series of WindowBlinds skins branded for NVIDIA and some of NVIDIA's partners. Impulse is Stardock's digital distribution platform. The platform, often compared to Valve's Steam Network, allows Stardock to distribute its own games and those of partners - digitally.

The NVIDIA branded version of Impulse is available immediately and at no cost at the NVIDIA site.
